Counted Cross Stitch


Yes, friends, welcome to my blog! I can't believe how long it's been since I posted anything. This is a little cross stitch sampler I made 20 something years ago. I know, right?  Yes, I just wrote that. It's what happens when a lot of teenagers hang out at your house and when you work with high school and middle school kids all day. I wouldn't have it any other way though. **grins** 

Back to my sampler...It is stitched in linen, which means you skip a 'hole' and stitch into the next. Good thing I made it when I was 20 something, I need a magnifying glass and Ott-Lite now.  Speaking of which, I do have an Ott-Lite, True Color, full spectrum , floor lamp that I love. I just need the one with the pattern clip and magnifying glass now. I haven't cross stitched in forever!!! I do have a few needle point projects going now.

The paper-craft project that I just completed is not photographing well. I made a little book using a Cosmo Cricket packet of paper, called Earth Love. I'll tell all about it when I can get some good pics.

Thanks for visiting me and I do apologize for not commenting as much as I normally would. Just know that I have been looking and admiring everything. I have also been visiting the parties. Please let me know that you haven't forgotten about my little blog and leave me a little love!!
Cheers!
Lori

I have been wondering where you've been! You have been missed!

I love counted cross stitch. That project reminds me of some that I used to do when I first learned how to cross stitch... brings back memories!

It's so beautiful, Lori!! I've only done a little cross stitching, so I can appreciate the work you've put into this. ☺

It's so very pretty Lori. It's been about as long for me, about 20 years since I cross stitched, i make so many pieces, some I didn't even put in a frame. Miss your lovely comments. Thank you for sharing you creativeness at Sunday's Best

Briana Johnson said...

That is really pretty, Lori. I did some cross stitch about 8 years ago ;) Only got about 1/5th the way done. You've really got to concentrate, at least I sure did. I have an Ott light, just a little one though. I'll be back to see your newest project when you get it photographed!

This is beautiful, Lori...I used to do a lot of cross stitch but not in the last few years. I need to get it out again and use it on my cards...thanks for the inspiration!!!

Carolyn King said...

this is awesome..you should definitely get into it again! I am right with you...any detail work is done under an Ott light...wonder what we did before them?!

Lori said...

Your cross stitch is loveley! I haven't cross stitched in a long time... My mom and I used to all the time!

Beautiful Lori!! I love cross-stitch. I have done a lot of it but not as much lately. So much fun but just not enough time for it all.
hugs,
Chris
