    Those are just about as beautiful as anything i have ever seen. How in the world do you see well enough to do those little stitch counts.

    Cross stitching was my hobby of choice before quilting...unfortuneately most of the ones I finished have gone as gifts...I still pick it up in the evening sometimes and complete a few stitches...LOVE your projects ...very pretty.

    One winter I decided to do an adorable Christmas Cats cross stitch. I got crosser and crosser! I couldn't figure out how you know where to start. You must have infinite patience.

    That's what I did too-cross-stitch, have so many pictures and gave away as gifts, had to get another hobby for awhile.

    Oh me too. I have so many angels and two of your Santas. Still do it sometimes, but my adiction has gone from counted cross stitch to quilting. Haven't gotten rid of my cross stitch stuff, still plan on doing more someday, if the eyes hold up.

    Beautiful I did a lot of cross stiching it was a time filler for bed side sitting. But quilting I enjoy more.

    I would think she will love the suprise. I know all the quilts I've given as gifts are cherished.

    I have stitched some of the same cross stitch, all our cross stitch stores have closed down and I really miss it I love cross stitch as I could do it while we watched tv at night. My dh likes me to be there when we watch tv and my sewing machine is in the other room so cant quilt, now I crochet.

    You did exceptionable work before quilting. Can't imagine how you could do those and make them look like pictures. Great job!

    Oooooohh, I just love Leavitt-Imblum. I have most of the Told In a Garden Patterns and have done quite a few of the Amish ones.

    Are there some Mirabilia or Marbek angels in there too?

    Your work is stellar. Nice framing too.
