The days are getting shorter and the nights leave behind frost on the ground. About this time every year I feel the pull of my craft projects…the desire to curl up in front of the fire with a cup of tea and a needle; to surround myself with bits of fabric and colored threads; to make tiny stitches and watch a picture develop.
This is one of my current projects:
I started this at least 15 years ago! But, I’m slowly getting it done. It’s counted cross stitch and stitched on tan 18 count Aida.
Lest you think I never complete anything, here are some of my finished projects from years ago:
Pattern is by Barbara Bourgeau-Richards – Counted Cross Stitch stitched on 18 count Aida (finished 1991).
New England Sampler – Counted Cross Stitch stitched on 18 count Aida (finished 1993)
Victorian House – Counted Cross Stitch stitched on 18 count Aida (finished 1990).
I’ve made a lot of counted cross stitch projects, and also done some Hardanger – but, these I’ve given away to various friends and family and unfortunately did not take photos of them!
