CROSS STITCH FINISH


I finished this yesterday in the craft room. The chart is Blackbird designs. It is from their A Stitcher's Journey book. I stitched it on 40 count newcastle flax linen. If you noticed.. That is the box I got cheap after Christmas in Hobby Lobby. It worked out great. I have been painting a good bit. I may great to post them soon. I hate that you have to wait on paint to dry..


The little size 0 baby shoe was my daughter's shoe. It is 29 years old.. She will be 30 in April. Boy, I'm getting old!  lol   I had lost one of the pair years ago. I still had this one. Thanks to Pinterest, it has became a pin holder. I have it beside my sewing machine.
That is all for today.. Going grocery shopping.. I have to get back to No White Eating... Till later.....

Sweey baby shoe and great idea to use it as a pin holder.

Love this BBD piece and it looks wonderful on the box - such a nice way to display it. The little shoe makes me wistful - I remember when my boys were that little, where does the time go?
