    X-Stitch

    Thought I'd share some of my cross stitch with everyone... I get obsessed with it once I start, and it stops all my nervous habbits.
    The roses I did for my mums birthday, and the angels seem to have become my favorite subjects, I hunt the web for new patterns all the time.

    Very nice Letha! I love to cross stitch and embroider to. Usually I do Christmas pieces, with old fashioned Santas and forest animals etc...

    I am working on a kitten one for my daughters room, but I better get cracking (it's been a few months since I touched it!)

    Thanks for sharing

    Lovely work, letha Thank you for sharing it with us.

    Have you looked at the Lavender and Lace patterns for angels? They have a line of angels you might like. Try here.

    I bought the summer, fall, winter, and spring patterns but have never had time to make them. One day...

    Re: X-Stitch

    Thank you for the praise.

    All the angels on here are Lavender and Lace, I don't pay for the packs and I often don't pay for the paterns, find all the free ones online, it can take a while to find ones that are to the standards of Lavender and Lace or Mirabilia but they all have freebie paterns hiden on their sites somewhere.
    Then it's online again to order the silks etc. The beads are often difficult to get hold off.

    I love to cross-stitch, but I rarely have time anymore, so I'm webmaster for my stitchers group...

    Wow, it's been ages since I've cross-stitched. I always found it so relaxing and then I started needing magnifying glasses to see where to make the stitches!

    When I did stitch more often, I did a lot of Christmas ornaments from patterns or kits that I bought. Then I'd get these miniature frames or small dowls (sp?) and finish them off.

    I also have a pattern (floss included!) of a Thomas Kinkead cottage that I once promised my sister I'd stitch for one of her birthdays. Notice I didn't commit myself to which year!

    Nice pictures letha. I like doing cross stitch too, though I tend to do less in the summer as I prefer to be inthe garden when it's nice. I find it very relaxing with the added bonus of having a nice picture to look at when it's finished.

    If anyone would like to see any of my work I can post some pictures over the weekend.

    Well done, Letha! Let's see some of yours, Flouncey!

    I haven't done a cross-stitch in years, but I've just bought a pattern of Rabbit (from Winnie the Pooh) on ebay. I want to give it to my boyfriend for our anniversary in June. (Yes, it's a sappy present, but it has meaning as out of all the characters in Winnie the Pooh, he most relates to Rabbit. But that's a whole other thread).
