Needlework: Crewel and Cross Stitch




Here are some more samples of needlepoint and crewel work that I did in the past. The one featuring grandchildren was a gift for my mother-in-law seven years too soon as it is missing three grandchildren who came along later....timing is everything.  Click here to see other examples.
I am linking to most of these BLOG PARTIES

These are wonderful! I used to cross stitch when I was a little girl, actually. My mom started me up on it, and I had my own supplies and everything. I made quite a few things, then....I got into my teens...life got busy. Then high school, college, work, marriage....children. I just let life get in the way of something that I once loved to do~ I should start it up again. I remember it was such a peaceful craft to do.

I saw your link on the 'I Love My Online Friends" blog hop. I'm your newest follower :)

Those are nice. My mom used to do that. She hasn't for while now though. Not sure why. She has become a farmville addict of course...that might explain it. New follower.

This is truly becoming a lost art. You are so talented!! I love the grandchildren one. My grandmother would LOVE that but unfortantly every cross stitching project I have started has never been finished. ugh!

You are so incredibly talented. Thank you so much for sharing your craft at Strictly Homemade Tuesday. I hope to see you back next week!!

Oh you must have the patience of a saint to have stitched all those treasures. Glad I dropped by to see.

The one that says "teacher" would be appropriate for me. Pretty please? :-)

The seeker of ruby and red
Will not let green go to her head;
Instead she will seek
Her senses to pique
With cherry and crimson instead.

It's been so long since I've cross-stitched...I'm sure I have some unfinished projects that need my attention. Your work is just beautiful. I'm so glad you shared your work at the Tuesday To Do Party! I can't wait to see what little pretty you share next time!
