2019 Craft Goals (Less is More)

In past years I have made huge project goal lists. I've had years where I have been successful and years where I have been overwhelmed and unsuccessful. This year I am changing my motives. I plan to knit a donation hat in lieu of a gift for each person in my Christmas/Birthday list. I also… Continue reading 2019 Craft Goals (Less is More)

NASCAR cross stitch

I'm so excited that I finally finished my NASCAR cross stitch! I used a long crochet hook and some twine to hang it up!

Cheeky Cross Stitch Humor

I am still sick with that pain in the butt cold. My head has become nothing more than a pounding snot factory.

Cross Stitch Goodness

I am so happy that I have finished this little cross stitch banner that my Sister Brittany started before she passed away.  I did change up that pattern a bit by adding the little handmade pompom to the Santa hat.
