Here is another pair of pants I did for my roomate. She LOVES purple and hearts, yay!

Here are some of the baby clothes I have made. Making baby onesies are probably my favorite craft! The stars on the sweet dreams one glow in the dark! I love adding little touches like that! :)

Little hayden's nick name is porkchop.

Sorority sister Nicole's baby! I made this blanket for her babyshower! These were the first things I made for baby girls. I had way to much fun! The blanket has a stork in one corner, and something else i can't remember what...and then i personalized it!

The rest!

This is a current unfinished project, but I am working very hard on finishing it by the end of march. It is an antique Alpha Romeo 1932 1150. It is for my grandpa! My grandma meant to do this project but said she has had the pattern for years and is never going to do it! So she gave it to me. It's only one stitch, I am trying to make it as antique as possible, but it's hard even with the pattern on the fabric!!

Another unfinished project is a table runner with cross-stitch. This is my take on a pattern I found in a magazine. I guess I just used the flower design and then made it a border for a long table runner. In the magazine it was all in black and it was a border for al little square...I think I love this way to much! Can't wait til I have time to finish it, only one long side left.

Here are more various little projects I have completed but not really done anything with:

This was my first attempt at punch needle stitching. Not sure I like it all that much. I find it very hard to get the stitches uniform. Ugh. I will try again later!

More projects...

Okay, give me a break I made a ton of stuff over the past two years and I haven't posted any of it!

here was my very first project that I completed. This was during my wisdom teeth recovery, it took me two days. No I did not make the pillow, my mom has that talent. I have made these pillows for Jenny, Ali, Bianca, Ashley, my mom and my sister. They are probably my favorite project.

Some of my first embroidery projects

Why might you ask, did I get into cross-stitching? Well, it was about two years ago in August. I has just had my wisdom teeth taken out. I became bored sitting around not being able to talk and needed something to do. My mom had cross-stitched, embroidered, made my sister and I clothes for as long as I can remember. Naturally she handed me some fabric, a needle, thread and a pattern. The first thing I stitched was my intial R. Since that time I have been addicted to stitching!! Then I recieved the book sublime stitching and I got into embroidery as well!

Here are some of my older projects:
This is a pair of pants I made my sister: the front pocket says a pirates life for me and naturally it has sparrows on the butt.

Some felt purses that I started practicing on:

First post

I have been pondering over the idea of a blog for some time now. I was inspired by a cousin's blog about knitting! I have also been looking at many crafting blog around the internet and I wanted one!! So I just got it done and made one! Now as far as what I decide to post on here, it will be my cross-stitching projects and updates on all things me. Yay! I get tired of the same 'ole myspace

Looking forward to posting my old projects and new!
