More Cross Stitch

Here's something else I'm stitching:

This is the 4th in a fingertip towel set Mom had started. Each one is a design for the seasons, and Mom had finished Summer, Fall and Winter. Spring wasn't even started! I wonder why? I found the set among her crafting supplies when I was working on the house last month, and I'm terribly sentimental about craft projects. I don't know why, exactly - they seem so personal to me, I guess, and people intend to finish them.

It'll be more defined when it's finished. It's two bunnies sitting in a thicket of springtime flowers.

Mom had a boatload of embroidery/cross stitch floss, and I took it all. I have no idea what I'll do with all the floss, but there may be embroidered quilt blocks in my future.

As I was getting ready to start this project, I thought I'd try to find the right colors among my vast collection. The floss colors are numbered, and the project was only a design sheet with the numbers. I wonder if I have them all.

As luck would have it, I had all but one! And I had a color close enough for the one I could not find exactly. What a collection!

  1. I love to cross stitch! I remember doing a few towels like this and a liner for a bread basket for my mother-in-law. I haven't picked my cross stitch up in a while but then again, I haven't had much time to sit lately :) However, here I am at the computer. Maybe that's why??
