Oldies but Goodies!


I am working on a new project that I got from a freebie, so nothing to show yet.
I took some photos of a couple of items that I made years ago and hope  you enjoy seeing them.
I had to do these without flash to reduce the glare, so they colors are a bit yellowed.

This is a cross stitch that I made about 30 years ago, when I could still see well, lol. I still love this piece as much now, as when I made it and hangs on my bedroom wall.


These are two of the first frakturs, that I ever made. One is for my wedding date and the other is when we bought our home.


And this is an item I bought about 20 years ago. I love to collect unique cat items and couldn't resist this one. I am thinking of using the design as an idea for an art quilt.

Hi Ya Deb, Wow the cross stitch is very beautiful and so country too. Would be so perfect in a cottage style come. I have not been up to par of late so didn't much posted the last few week. Just got the blog updated.
Miss ya kiddo. Hugs, LenZie
