Nutcracker in JCS

I can now show the nutcracker that I stitched last summer. It is part of a four design set that is in the November/December issue of Just Cross Stitch.


Here is the layout in the magazine:

Quick Project for ME!

Finished all my modelstitching designs and my RR Project so I settled down into my stitching nest and stitched up this quick design. It is a DMC design I picked up some years back and just loved the simplicity of it. Took me one evening per rose. Should be able to frame it pretty inexpensively too.

Lots of Modelstitching Updates

Just happened to go to the magazine websites and noticed that these two designs that I modelstitched are in the October issue. I really had fun with the owl teapot. It apparently is part of a series and there will be many more.

Trust in the Lord and Amazing Grace are obviously companions. Amazing Grace was in the August 2012 issue. Guess they have stopped sending me the issue when my project is in one of them. L

These cute cupcake towels were in the June 2012 issue. LOTS of fun to do!

This also in the June issue is an adorable cat and mouse alphabet sampler.


Wow! I’ve stitched a lot lately, but nothing is on my walls!

Halloween Design

I know it is November 2nd, but I was browsing Halloween designs (I guess for next year) and came across a design that I modelstitched in 2009. Funny how I forget about them and then seeing them again sets off an alarm in my brain! This one was for Imaginating and was definitely fun to do.
