New Pinkeep

I really have been enjoying cross stitching, My latest project I was even able to stitch on 18 count
aida cloth. I don't know if I will ever be able to master stitching on linen or osanburg. It is
hard for me to see the tiny squares.  I am finding
that cross stitching can be addicting and relaxing.

  I want to show some of the pinkeeps and stitcheries that I have completed so far.

  1. Love your cross stitched pinkeeps!

    I just recently found out about something called waste canvas. You use it to stitch on linens and fabrics that are hard to see the holes! I'd love to try it out someday.

    This blog has a tutorial, though I am sure there are others you can find through a google search. http://sewsweetviolet.blogspot.com.au/2014/03/my-first-tutorial-cross-stitching-on.html

  2. My gosh, your needle has been flying! Wonderful finishes Lecia. I have several 30 count linen kits that I bought, thinking I'd stitch them up, but I'm going to have to invest in a magnifier of some kind to stitch them, I can't see the darn things!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
