Counting Stitches

Over the years, I have done a lot of counted cross-stitch, and The Sleeping Baby is my favorite picture. I originally made it to be a birth announcement with name, weight, etc. in the bottom right corner for my niece, but sadly she did not have any children.

It hangs in my sewing room along with a picture made by my niece and a sign made by my mother.

This Victorian House with the door sign hangs by my front door. The sign has Velcro on the back and is interchangeable to reflect the holidays or special occasions. The "Welcome Friends" sign is displayed between holidays.

This piece with an Amish family at the clothesline is on display in my bedroom. I especially like the colors and the movement of the quilts. It reminds me of hanging clothes when I lived on the farm.

I also have a lot of Christmas and Winter counted cross-stitch pictures; perhaps, I will remember to post photos of them when I hang them in November.

  2. I love to do counted cross-stitch. Your work is lovely! I'd love to see your Christmas Works. Sadly, I gave away the works I did do and don't have any photos. I haven't done any cross stitching since I started my business in 1986.

  3. Oh, Nancy, You amaze me with the beautiful needlework you do! You are truly an artist with any needle! I'll look forward to seeing your Christmas needlework pictures.

    I was never patient enough to do much cross stitch... but... did go through a period of doing petit point... go figure? It is so hot now I can't even think of handling yarn... lol.

    Always love to read your blog.
