|Yes !!!!!! you read that right...I finally after a year convinced Dennis to give Crosstitching a try. The first photo is the Itty Bitty Christmas tree he made into a Christmas card. He is now working on a snow flake in red. He is working with 11 count Aida because though you can teach on old dog new crafts you can't make the eye sight better....LOL
He did a really good job on this I think.
Next up we have a project that my oldest and I worked on together. I made the Santa out of clay and put the snow on the pine cones then I helped with the snowmen. Chris made the pound and then glued all the stuff to the board and helped with the snowmen.
He even took the photo.
I did my first Helga Mandl design and turned it into an ornament. This was no easy task for me yesterday. I had an upset tummy and nothing was going right with putting this together. I started out doing the beaded edge but finally ripped that out and went with the frayed edge. Helga Mandl has some freebies here if you wanna check then out. The design I did was from her SAL book that she sells on the group wXswThis was also my first stitch ever on 18 count Aida. I was always so intimidated by the smaller counts but seance Sue was so kind to send me some I had to give it a try. I must say thanks to Sue for that..as I like it very much.
Now I leave you with my ATC's. This will put an end to this project till I can get some more stitched up and Dennis has a chance to catch up...LOL
Thanks for visiting me and I hope you enjoy.
