Cross Stitch Finish


I have done something since I have been back... Laundry... Tons of laundry. lol I did finish this stitching into a pillow last night. My mom stitched the pieces back in the 80's. She had them in a box full of thread and cross stitch stuff... I guess that means she will not be cross stitching anymore.. She has taken up knitting. That is something I can not do.

I coffee stained the stitching to make it match the colors in the fabric. I think it turned out cute. I also put a Halloween bag together last night. I only have the strap left to finish and attach. I will show it tomorrow.
I have not stitched any on Ghostly. He is the same... Half filled in... lol
I was glad to be back from the beach. Missed my grands.. I asked Josh what he wanted his Gigi to bring him back from the beach? He said," A Sand Castle". OK.... Well guess what I found in a souvenir shop. A sand castle.. I got him and Zoe each one. They put them on their dressers in their bedrooms. I need to go see them today. I missed seeing them yesterday. I am glad they are across the street from me. I also need to go get my lawn mower... lol
All my North Eastern Coast Friends, Ya'll keep a watch on Earl !!! I am.....
Till later ....
Still have some things for sale on Selling Blog....

Cute pillow and a great job you made of finishing it too :-)

I'm curious, how do you 'buy' a sand castle from a shop?

Very cute - I'm a fan of hens, roosters, chickens as a motif!

A very sweet finish. I can't knit either. Of course, I've never really tried. hee,hee,hee.
We're waiting on Earl. I'm in New Bern NC. Trying to get all my computer time in before the storm and I lose power.

hi! I found your blog via Deborah's. Cute pillow finish!
I have a pretty dull life myself!!! Maybe you should check my dull blog!!! I joke with my husband that IF I go out twice a week, I am being very adventurous!!!

The pillow is wonderful! The fabric you chose goes with the stitching perfectly. Nice job!

Nice pillow, the fabrics look good. I have taken up knitting recently and it's not as bad as I thought.
