Yesterday I was cleaning the sewing room up, you know putting the piles of stuff away that I had laying around and all the thread organized and in its proper place. I came across a tote I had not seen for a while and started going through it and this is what I found.
|Filled with Love by |
The Creative Circle
This was the very first counted cross stitch piece that I ever did.
I know I was stitching it in Oct of 1984 because that is when my son was born. I use to sell Creative Circle and did many of there pieces. I still have the orginal pattern for this piece and decided to restitch it using WDW colors.
|not sure when I started stitching it the second time,|
2 or 3 years ago I think.
The next stitching I found was from around 1999 - 2000.
Do you remember the Millennium?
Well these are the Millennium Cats, I finished January thru October.
Aren't they cute little kittys, not sure why I didn't finish them
Next up is
|This is called Cow/Calf |
don't know the designer
This one may go in the trash because it looks like it was a kit and the thread is no longer with it. Unless I feel like being creative and picking my own colors for it.????
I am sure I was doing this towel with Holsteins on it because my DH & I have raised baby holsteins for over 25 years.
The rest of what I am going to show you I do not know when I started them. I never kept track back then.
|Got a long ways to go on this one!|

|Praying Hands |
Looks like its almost done, I need to find
directions for it
|This one I was doing for my daughter (Jill) |
I wonder if she will still want it?
|I Love Country Bow Ties|
|The stitching is all done but misplaced|
the center piece that makes it into
a Bow Tie
Do you suppose it will come back into style again.
The sad part is I know that I have more projects that are started and at various stages of completion that are tucked away in that sewing room.
I hope you enjoyed my trip down memory lane.
Have a great week end with some
