Here is a little something I finished a few weekends ago. The letters are from an issue of Better Homes and Garden Cross-Stitch and the tree is from a book I have...something about gifts in xstitch...

Here's a link to the book...

I just found this group and thought I would share a completed project. I mostly embroider, but lately I'm giving crochet another try. I learned both as a child, which resulted in many needles stuck in feet (mostly mine) and some crazy-looking projects.

Hey All,
I’ve been working on a new project for a few days now. I have two jobs and only get to work about an hour solid everyday so it can take awhile…This pattern is from Barabara Hammet’s Book One of my favorites!

Sorry for the super long vacation.
It was horrible, I had a few teeth out then I got sick
then I had a big meeting thing at work then I got sick again. This time it was for a whole week.
I have been well for about two weeks now.
I just switched all my skiens over to the Stitch-bow system and its looking promising.
I just finished a little Quote with some flowers and pretty borders. I'll scan it in when I get home later today.
I have also been working on this: http://www.joannfabrics.com/catalog.jhtml;$sessionid$1PBFUTYAAHKIAP4SY5NBJAR50LD3OEPO?CATID=82493&PRODID=57271
I will also post a scan when I get home...of that...

however seeing as though is is truelly the third time i tried to embroider anything i feel proud enough to share. done freehand, no pattern :)

what do you all recommend as the better stitch to do this kind of stuff, the 'backstitch'? i did i think, a 'splitstitch' where the needle goes through the thread of the first stitch. or i could just be making that up, because when i look at the instructions my mind goes blank and it is really hard for me to visual the actual stitches from those diagrams. is it bad to just wing whatever looks good or do you want to strive something more textbook? i am very new at this....help!

one more....

Hi again, I had my grandma take a picture of this cross stitch I did for her about 2 years ago. I love how the rope turned out around the border. I hope you like it! :D
