X-stitch Fever

the petrosons

Spicy made a throwaway comment the other week about how I should make a pillow with our family on it. I had long admired the cross stitch patterns by weelittlestitches and thought they'd be a perfect match. I ordered a custom pattern for 3-5 characters and Jacqueline was kind enough to overlook my inability to count.

I got my supplies from 123stitch and finished up in only a few days. Spicy is wearing a hat, sweater, and pants that I made and I am sporting my confection hat.

now i just need to decide how to finish it. it's quite a small piece. i was thinking of making a mini-quilt but i haven't decided for certain yet. i had forgotten how enjoyable cross-stitch is. i've ordered a kit that i'm excited to try next.

  4. Very cool project, Sis! I feel bad I can't remember Jeff's cat's name, otherwise I can recognize and name you all.

  5. I have had a hankering for cross stitch but haven't been able to find any kits that catch my eye. I might do one of me and my boyfriend!

    And, good luck in the contest. When I voted you were in the lead :)
