I've been busy today finishing things for Valentine's Day. I finished the piece above by making it into an ornament. I had originally intended to give this to DD, but I changed my mind and hung this on DS's crypt. I usually put something on his grave on special days. I used a suction hook to hang it. It gave me a good feeling to put it there! I'll go get it in a few days and hang it in his room with the others.
The picture above is what I did for DD and her BF. I first started this on off white Aida. But yesterday when I went to a nearby fabric store, they had all their cross stitch stuff for 30% off. So I bought this pink and some blue Aida and some white Monaco. I really like this on pink. I stitched one yesterday and another one today. I have made one of the pillows. It's below. I'll have to make the other in the morning. The girls won't let me sew anymore today.
I also changed my mind about using the bee fabric to make the little pillow. I saw this yesterday when I was at the fabric store, so I went back today and bought some. It was half price. It looks squashed because I mashed it down on the scanner. It's not really this flat! lol I am going to add some bows and a hanger. Then they can hang them on the doorknob of their rooms. I didn't make a tuck pillow this time. I decided that's a little too much work for me. I can just sew on the borders and the back. The tuck pillow takes too much measuring. I couldn't get the center opening the size I wanted it.
When I was at the store today, I saw a sale table. So I went and rummaged through the things to see if there was anything I wanted. AND you won't believe it! But I found 2 Q-Snaps for 60% off. They were just $3.50 a piece! I've been wanting to get myself one! I bought both of them - one for me and one for DD. I love it when I find things on sale!!! I tried stitching using the Q-Snap . I really like it, but it is heavier than a hoop. Well, got to go. I want to watch House and DD is threatening to turn it to something else. Have a happy day!
