During July I drug out some cross stitch and one crewel project that had been hiding in a drawer and finished them by making quilted wall hangings of them. If you enjoy these you might check out the needle craft forum and see what else I've been up to. I embroidered these pots a LONG time ago and never did anything with them until now. They fit right in with my Santa Fe style house.

I thought this one was so darn cute. I have a little bone shaped button that I'm going to add. I just happened to have the right fabric to set it off.

I am a real sucker for anything with a cat... I had a beautiful calico but the neighborhood bobcat got her about six weeks ago... I have a friend that has a calico named Jasmine that looks so much like this little kitty that I've named her Jasmine.

Gloria, I'm so happy to see you getting these Xstitch projects completed. You have given me ideas for how to finish off the several ones I have stored in a box. I love what you have done...

Fishy, I did the needle work on these years ago and decided I'd better get them finished. Turning 70 in January has inspired me to finish up things while I can still see!! And get them out where I can enjoy them. barefoot, thanks. I had a dog that I liked better than I did most people when I did that one. She has been long gone but is still in my heart. I've used fabric from my stash to finish these projects and was very happy when I found the paw print. And thanks to Barb also. It is a nice feeling to finally finish something and enjoy it.

Ohmigosh, you do such nice work! I have two cross-stitch pieces that I really need to get out and finish. But my work is not nearly as neat and smooth as yours. Beautiful! :)

Thank you Elizabeth. I'm sure your work is just fine. housse, glad I can be an instigator!! It was lots of fun to finish these projects. I'm also finishing a couple of tatting projects. I'll be posting them on the Needle Craft forum when they are done. I have a few there already if you'd like to check them out.

Thank you for sharing.

Thank you, housse. I have looked at directions on how to tat and I would never be able to learn from them either!!! My grandmother taught me. I think you have to see someone tatting to even have a clue.

My mom taught me. my daughter and her son. Daughter still does quite a bit of tatting. I never cared much for it, not enough patience. My mom used to tat the lace for vintage style dresses I made for grand daughters, and for a couple christening gowns. She used the thinnest, finest thread she could find, it looked like spider silk. I have only a tiny piece left.
