Meet and Greet
Today we are celebrating the first day of spring and a chance to meet stitchers from around the world. The call went out for hand stitchers to link up at www.sewwestitch.com with some of our favorite pieces.
I have made Christmas stockings for the grandchildren as they came into our family. Many of them were made before I started blogging and I do not have photos of those, but here are some of the more recent ones.
Some of the families have chosen to have the counted cross stitch stockings while others have chosen the felt embroidered ones.
Most of the stitching I have done has been gifts, but I do have two pieces of counted cross stitch hanging in the house. They are both behind glass so please excuse the glare.
I have been working on a nativity scene for the last few years. Each year I say that I will finish it, but right now I am working on one of the kings. Two more kings and then the shepherds and angels on the other side of the piece need to be done before I call it finished……maybe this year!
Be sure to pop over to Sew we Stitch to find a list of all participants and to be inspired by some gorgeous work.
