PeggyAnn, I've seen it called both cross stitch embroidery and chicken scratch. I think "chicken scratch" does sound more fun.

What a cute baby outfit! You are so talented.

I'll try to get the photo loaded of my other hot pad. I am a bit behind in cleaning. Now that the temperatures are colder, I can't dry as much laundry outside as I typically do.

Have a blessed day!

I'm working on sewing up some of my little literature quotation pillows-I love Jane Austen, so her quotes often find their way to one of my pillows. Then, I'll be sewing some burlap style throw pillows-all for my little etsy shop.

The quilt I'm putting together for my son is also sitting in the corner calling me!!

I had to run my 18 yo to the doctor and she's really sick. I won't have time to go take a photo and load it tonight. It's 4:49pm here and I have both clotheslines full of laundry yet......long day here today. I'll try again tomorrow. :)

I "finally" finished a mountain man shirt for my hubbie last night. Just had to sew the buttons on. Took me forever to get to that. What's up with that? Do any of you almost finish a project and then put it down for months.

I only picked this one up because we are going to the Fort Buenoventura Rendezvous over Easter weekend and the DH was giving me "the" look. *LOL*

Fran, I love the pincushions. They are so different from the norm.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I cannot master those things that I have not tried.

Sherone ~ I've made many rendezvous shirts and found that, if you don't stick to them 'til they're finished, they probably never will get done. Some of those patterns are a bit confusing too and take a little tweaking, don't you think?

Sherone, I've been known to do that too...I started my first lapghan in eighth or ninth grade and didn't finish it until I was 25! (Mind, I'd finished a few full-sized ones in the meantime.)

Everyone's so busy lately! Today I'm learning the ins and outs of my new iPad. As soon as I figure out how to upload pictures from it (I click on the upload button and nada), I will take pictures of my recent projects.

Will post an update on my blog later. I finished a kitchen set for my husband's nephew. I like the color combination, so I may crochet a "set" for my store too.

I'm making a Christening gown for my nieces new daughter. I am still working on the bonnet and slip. I am posting a pic here instead of on my blog as I don't want her to see it before the shower on Sat.
The second picture shows more of the detail of the embroidery and insertion lace design.

Blessings, Sheri
