Today I am a couple of days late in joining Measi for WIPocalypse. I have been lapse in joining for the past few months. I just don't pay attention to when there is a full moon.
This month's question is "Who is your favorite person to stitch for, or do you prefer to keep your stitching for yourself?"
My answer: As I was going through my photos I realized that although I stitch gifts for family and friends, I mostly stitch for myself.
Currently I am in the midst of my Large Cross-stitch #1 which will be for my son. I am on the first of 10 pages. This is where it is now:
A photo card of this little angel was the Christmas card I send a few years ago. It is one of my first forays into my own designs.
I have also designed for Valentine's Day....
The chart for this towel can be found under the pattern tab at the top of this page.
I made this towel from a pattern in a magazine.
This is the latest angel that I designed. I am still working on the designs for the other seasons.
I made this cross-stitch using elements from various magazine patterns at my MIL's request many years ago. She liked this saying from the Family Circus newspaper comic strip and asked me to stitch it.
My mother-in-law re-gifted it back to me last Christmas now that hubby and I are empty-nesters.
This is another one of my own designs that now hangs at my mom's house. The colors went well with her den.
I have made many, many more cross-stitch items for myself, family and friends. I hope you enjoyed this little picture tour.
Thanks for stopping by!
