Cross Stitching Joy

I thought I would create a new blog devoted to one of my other hobbies: cross-stitching. I picked up this hobby about 4 years ago and have become addicted to it. I mainly look for counted cross-stitch kits by Janlynn, Dimensions, and Bucilla. I have found that most of the projects I have completed are of cats. I recently completed one called "Gettysburg" by Sunset/Dimensions.

I began this project while my dad was recovering from major heart surgery in March of this year. I spent about a month on it before I had to set it aside when Spring semester started up for me. I didn't start working on it again until mid-July when I found myself out of a job and with more "free time" on my hands. It was completed this past weekend.

It's amazing!
Congratulations on this finish, and on the designing of bibs.

Thanks Lili!

I am almost finished with the "Frederick" pattern. I have the bottom row of details left.

My cousin loved the bibs!
