    before I learned to quilt, I have spent many years stitching of another kind. I love to cross stitch too. The angel is a lavender and lace pattern and I am almost halfway there.

    Your stitching is just beautiful! I fell in love with the framed leaf -- it is just so simple and lovely.

    I love to do counted cross stitch. I ordered a Christmas Angel from Lavender and Lace, but I just don't know when in the world I will ever start on it. It's the first L & L I've bought because they are so "involved", but, boy, are they gorgeous!

    Lovely !! Those take so much time to do. I have heard of people taking a year to finish one.

    Beautiful work.

    You are brave to stitch on that dark fabric. What count is it?

    Ten years ago I started on a Halloween pc. on black 10 ct (Lizzie Kate) and had to put it away. I am going to give it to my 29 year old daughter to finish and she can keep it, she loves all things Halloween and Fall.

    Again beautiful work.

    Beautiful!! I love the Lavender and Lace and Told in a Garden patterns. I have finished about 15 of her patterns, mostly angels. Since I took up quilting (and went back to work and had shoulder issues) I have not cross stitched in 7 years. I am almost all the way done with just a little background left on "Queen Ann's Lace". I need to get it done. It's just that the background stuff is no fun with all those color changes. I love Marilyn's work!!!

    I like to cross-stitch, too. That was my hobby when the kids were littler because it doesn't have to be spread out so much.

    Your Victorian house is awesome. I have the pattern for the Victorian sewing room and the Victorian bride with her mother. Together we almost have a collage!

    These are beautiful pieces! Cross stitch has been my hobby (and a source of income) for many years now for me. I used to do a lot of model stitching but am finding I just don't have the time at the moment to do much. I don't think I've stitched anything for myself or my family in years because I'd always been stitching for a designer.
