This is a cover kit from the Crazy Cross Stitch May Issue #150. It is a fun, quick stitch. Strange teddy bear but cute.

Siamese Cat Bookmark

I just finished stitching this Siamese Cat Bookmark from Jill Oxton's magazine. I was thinking about my sister who passed away 3 years ago from cancer and she used to have Siamese cats for most of her life. When she left, she had 4 Siamese cats at the time. So I was in the mood to stitch a bookmark in memory of her.

"Humble Adobe"

I decided to switch over from 25ct to 28 ct 2 over 2. It will be 56"H by 46" W when done. My eyes were becoming sore and I think I was straining them after stitching over an hour on 25ct one over one. The last straw was when I made an error and I was unable to frog the thread without damaging the fabric on 25ct. I am enjoying stitching on this fabric so far.

"Let's Bounce" progress

I only got this far since I have been busy with family gathering during Mother's Day weekend. Part of Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Roo, and part of the flowers and grass done.

I just received my Britain's #1 Cross Stitcher, Issue # 238 magazine yesterday in the mailbox. This is a cover kit that came with the magazine. Just a fun project to keep me going in between my large stitching projects that I am working on.

"Let's Bounce" - Disney

I am stitching "Let's Bounce" from Disney on 14ct aida with DMC threads.

This is my progress so far. It is in rotation with my other stitching projects.

"Herd of Elephants"

This is one of my oldest UFO. I had forgotten that I put it aside for another project. This will be a large design. It is stitched on 14ct aida with DMC threads.

SanMan 4 seasons freebie

I will be stitching this SanMan 4 seasons into a bookmark. I just have the backstitching on the months left to do. Each corner of the bookmark will have a different charm from the button company. ( acorn, bee, flower, snowflake) I have learned that it is very difficult for me to stitch on a dark fabric. This is 28ct dark grey, Cashell linen.

progress of "O'Canada"

I am stitching in rotation for this week about 5 different projects.

This is "O'Canada" stitched on 28 ct linen with DMC threads.
