In Memory

I planned on stitching this as a Christmas gift for my mother, to honor HER mother.  My plan was to start it on September 1, my birthday, as it is a special day for both me and my mother.  Mom passed away on August 29 (my father's birthday - he would have been 74).  After much thought and many, many tears, I have decided I will still stitch it to honor my grandmother, and also to honor my mother, though her name will not be featured.

This is "In Memory" by Midsummer Night Designs, featured in the July/August 2008 issue of Just Cross Stitch.  I will be starting it on January 1, 2012.  I miss you terribly, Mom.

A Halloween finish!

I know Halloween is over, but this will be for next year!  It's called All Hallows Mini by Waxing Moon Designs.  The model was stitched in black on a cream colored fabric, but I had a small cut of 28 ct black Lugana, and some glow in the dark DMC, so I went with it!

Here she is:

It's hard to see it glow in this photo, but trust me, it's BRIGHT!

Family Sampler

I finished my Family Sampler by Little House Needleworks!  I took a bit of a break from all stitching - my mom passed away on August 29th and I have been heartbroken ever since.  One day I'll post about it but for right now, I just want to show my finish and pretend she is still with me.  I miss her terribly.

So, here it is:

And here is a close up:

I love how the kitties turned out!  My husband stitched his hair, so it was a true family project!  I started it on 10-6-10, and finished it 11-6-11.  Can't wait to have it framed!
