While at Grimmwood I finished another cross stitch project. That is always a cause for rejoicing for this stitcher. Since I missed posting on Saturday Stitches, I thought I would post my completed projects today.
I Majored in Home Economics. Sandy and I both enjoy cross stitch and we occasionally pass the stash. She also sent me a cute spring bunny that I plan to do for next Easter. I made a change to this chart as it had two cardinals perched on the apple basket and I just wanted apples. I will make this into my May Christmas ornament for Grimmwood. My daddy raised apples for our family in an orchard in front of our home. He grafted some limbs from his granddaddy's apple trees onto his own trees. My mother still harvests the apples, peels and dries them with the help of my sisters. Believe me, they make the best fried apple pies ever!!
Now that I have finished three projects in my rotation, I am going to start two more projects in June.
I am hoping to finish this by July 4th.
For those of you who stitch, Vonna at The Twisted Stitcher has a great tutorial on the Diagonal Pin Stitch. It is great for starting your stitching neatly. I had heard of others who talked about this stitch but I could never figure it out. Vonna has a clear and precise tutorial on completing this stitch. I will be using this stitch for all my starts from now on. Thanks Vonna.
I am still trying to decide which Christmas ornament I will stitch for June....maybe I will post that on Saturday. Have a good one dear friends.
