Back to Cross Stitch

The recently was bit by the cross stitch bug.  I used to stitch all the time (before my quilting days) but after I learned how to applique, cross stitch took a back seat.  I wanted to start with something quick and easy.  I chose this Shepherd's Bush project. 

Here's the finished necklace.


I am the world's worst about procrastinating when I need to make pillowcases to complement the current quilt on the bed.  I don't know why because they are super simple.  Yesterday before church, I finally got around to making a couple of pillowcases to match the quilt that's been on the bed for several weeks.  Using the sausage roll technique means all seams are encased so no raveling when they're washed.

I pulled out a Merry Cox cross stitch project and am stitching it as well as working on a wool applique project.  I hope to have more to show soon.
