My blog, as I see it, will be mostly about my stitching (mostly hardanger, but some cross stitch too) and a little about what is going on in my life. And my cats, can't forget the cats!

My Sons' Bookmarks
These are the two bookmarks that I stitched for my sons Donovan and Kevin. I finished Donovan's by turning the fabric to the back while Kevin's was finished by gluing it to some ultrasuede. Kevin's is about two years old now and has been used a lot, and washed a couple of times so it does show a little wear. I thought it would be interesting to show them side by side though, to show how different they look in different colors and finishings. I really like this pattern, but it is so difficult to stitch with blended needles and full, half and over-one stitches! I thought I would go crazy stitching them, but I made it - twice!
I have four cats, or maybe I should say they own me! They keep me laughing. I am also addicted to doing hardanger embroidery, and also design some. Hope to soon be publishing my designs under the name It's A Stitch! Designs.
