    YES!! That is what I used to do too. I have many of the Lavender and Lace Angels stitched up and framed (even a couple under the couch un-frames) I do hope to get some Cross stitching done again. I stopped stitching when I went to work and when my shoulder problems started.

    You do beautiful work! The angel is stunning!!!!! I love to do counted cross stitch, and have done it for many, many years. My latest projects will be four fairies from the Nora Corbett collection. Once I got back into quilting, my cross stitch slowed down to almost a complete stop. I'm trying to find a balance between the two.

    WOW!!! Beautiful work! I did an 8x10 cross stitch 18 count piece - it was a wedding angel, and I did it for my church's 5th anniversary - I look at it sometimes and just can't believe I finished it! It's truly a beautiful piece, as are yours - Congratulations! Now, you can always cross stitch and then make a quilt out of them - ever thought of combining your two loves?

    Thank you all very much. Quilting is certainly much quicker. I think each of these took years to complete.

    Incredible!!!! Words fail me to say how beautiful they are. I used to cross stitch also for many years but then that was many years ago. I miss doing it, this may just inspire me to dig out my stuff again and start back up...

    Do you still do it??? I used to work in San Francisco and would cross stitch on BART. I've done soooooo much of it for so long ... the thought of doing it again made me sick!!!
    Haven't made anything in about 7 years. Oddly, I was at
    Joanne's today and saw a wolf pattern that I thought I could incorporate into a quilt. I bought it!!! Guess enough time has gone by.

    Your work is fantastic. You are probably like me. Even if one stitch was wrong, I'd rip it out. I'm that way to with my quilts too. I'm trying to learn that most people would never see the mistakes. May take awhile (hee hee) :thumbup:
