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. I have been carpooling everyone to work and school each morning only to return to bed until noon. Then I have been getting up and doing some housework before settling into some cross stitching. I am so ready for this cold to hit the road…!

Here are a few more things that I made to hang in my craft room. I can’t wait to repaint and decorate.

I finished this cheeky cross stitch over two weeks ago or so my Instagram account says.

I made the cross stitch pattern on this website if you’d like to make your own.

???????????????????????????????

I just finished this one last night. I used the same website for the words and then I used this pin from Pinterest for the artwork. I also added beads to make the pins in the pin cushion look more realistic.

Britt Pillowcase 1

Last but not least I started a Christmas pillowcase that has this Santa and a little Bear on it. This is another one of my Sister’s WIP’s.

I have also started my keeping my Daughter busy with some Cross Stitch and Embroidery. She’s finding the embroidery a little easier right now. I will share pictures of her projects soon.

    • Start with pink yarn and sc 5 stitches into a magic loop. Pull tight and switch colors (I used gray)
    • 2sc into each original 5 sc.
    • I expanded 3 more rows by adding extra stitches every so often
    • I used a stitch marker to mark the top (tail) at the start of the next round and then I placed the legs at the bottom with room for the tail to fit in between them.
