Love the button tree!

But then I thought it was 56 yrs. They have such fast living lives now. One called on the way to the airport, taking the kids to Disney Land, we never could afford to take them. One has a son in baseball and they are never home weekends. And so it goes! Our friends all sent cards and brother called from Texas. So we made out O.K.
Happy Anniversary!

Beautiful work! I have a lot of beautiful frames cross stitch hanging up around my home. I have not stitched in about 13 years. I guess quilting has taken all of my "creative" time. I do hope to pick it up some day again. My #3 daughter said "we love quilts mom, but what we are going to fight over after you die is your cross stitch so you need to do some more"

My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

Default My other passion

Cross stitching is also my other passion. It appeals to my OCD tendencies very nicely.

Here is a piece that I have been working on:

Great crafts! I crochet some, I'm known as the scrubbies lady as I crochet scrubbies in the car then give them away I occasionally cross stitch but use the stamped ones as I am legally blind. I used to find a new craft to learn every few years but started quilting few years ago........

Hi Anniedeb: I collect antique buttons and love your button Christmas tree! Never heard of button art but will google or for ideas. Thanks for sharing!

Lovely work! My grandmother embroidered all the time, she could take a plain pillowcase and just "doodle" on it with thread. She wouldn't mark a pattern, she'd just fold it to find the center, pinch in a little crease, and then somehow magically her needle would create birds and vines and flowers and butterflies and little fairy faces peeping out under a leaf or from behind a flower petal... I would watch for HOURS, it just fascinated me. It was like the designs were already there, invisibly, and she just had to outline them with the thread.

I've tried cross-stitch but I couldn't stick with it. I've done a little bit of crewel embroidery, that's more my style and I actually managed to finish a couple things. But always on something with a stamped design. I'm not nearly as skilled as my gran was.
