I am so in awed as to how this piece is coming along.  Too bad I am not a painter do I would be painting some awesome scenes on canvas, but cross stitching is the next best thing.  I love taking a piece of blank fabric and watching it come alive with a picture.  I guess that is how a painter feels when painting on canvas, eventually the picture will come to life.

This piece is called Fight for Freedom.

Knitted Baby Afghan

Fall is here to stay folks.  I am looking forward to the upcoming holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas).  I am posting a picture of the baby afghan that I am knitting for my cousin for her upcoming newest arrival in December 2011.

Queen of the Cats

I want to share a picture of my immediate family that includes my parents and son (Walt, Tim and Alice).

My current stitching project is called "Queen of the Cats." This is the beginning and I will post another midway picture and the final picture will be framed. I was hoping to enter this piece in the NC State Fair 2011, but I have to submit the entry form on September 23rd and still have two weeks to have this piece completed and framed.

So why stress, when I can just enter "Remember to say I Love You", which is the picture displayed below. This piece speaks volumes and is all about family. Family is the heart of any home, but it is a "true" woman that holds the foundation together. As the old saying goes...."behind every successful man is a good woman." If you get a chance to visit the NC State Fair 2011, please stop by the Education Building and take a look at all the crafts, cakes, canned goods and, of course, my cross stitch.

Summer almost gone......

Summer is almost gone and right around the corner is fall, which will bring the NC State Fair. I am working diligently on a piece called "Queen of the Cats." I will post a picture next week to show the beginning, then another picture a week later showing mid-way, and then the final picture.

The picture displayed was stitched and framed by me. This piece is called "Remember to say I Love You."
