One of My Favorite Hobbies Is Cross Stitch

Thankfully I have many interests ~ therefore, I do not get bored. Among them is cross stitching. When I lived in Austin, I actually took some classes from an expert stitcher. It was really good for me to be exposed to unusual stitching and ideas. Consequently the trunk in my cottage is nearly full to the top with threads, fabric, patterns, finished and unfinished projects. I used to tell my kids to toss all of these things into my casket when I die so I will have something to do after I get to heaven. [This is a joke! ;-)]

About three weeks ago I finished a bird project which was really fun to stitch. I picked it up from the framer yesterday and am quite pleased. The angels in the smaller frames on the table are Josiah and Annika, my darling grandchildren!

Donna, that is really beautiful. Wow, I wish that I had the fortitude (and time) to complete a project like that. I started doing a counted cross-stitch sampler for Josiah with his birthdate, weight, etc. but I never finished it and I don't think I ever will. It was a bit ambitious.
