Long ago, in a far away time, I was a cross stitcher. Then one sad day five years ago my Mom died because of a horrible car accident. At the time I was working on something for her. I had made the picture before but as she moved around a lot she had lost it along the way. I have had a hard time picking it back up. My daughter was very upset when I stop because it was something that we both loved to do. And I had taught her how to cross stitch when she was very little. I did start something last year but never finished it. Maybe I need to work on it instead of trying to figure out what to crochet next as I am in a rut right now.
Today would have been my Mom's 64th birthday. I honor of that I thought I would show you a few of the things I have made over the years. Sorry some of the images are a little grainy because I had to turn the flash off on the camera so it wouldn't glare on the glass. There are also a few more things hiding in closets that I didn't dig out. Both of them haven't been finished anyway.
This is a Lady Bug Bear I did for my daughter in 2005.
This is her Bumble Bee Bear I did in 2007.
This one is in Boo's room. I did it in 2005. Looks like I need to fix the water. It is running down hill.
This one hangs in our living room. I did it in 1997.
This one hangs above the other one in the living room. It was also done in 1997. This is the only one I have had professionally framed. All the rest I have done myself. I must say it was a log cheaper to do it myself.
This is one of the first large things I ever made. It was probably done around 1994-1996. It hangs in our bedroom. I also have the figurine that matches it. My Mom bought it for us not too long after we were married.
Hope you enjoyed my pretties. I love the way the cross stitch turns out but it takes so long to finish the big ones.
