Craft Time ... Stitching

I have been on a stitching kick the last couple of weeks and wanted to share two finished projects with you. These patterns were kindly shared by Primitive Betty. You can go HERE to see all of her free patterns. I haven't cross stitched in a long time and decided to use up all of the aida cloth that I have  before I purchase anymore I notice that most of you don't use Aida and would appreciate any suggestions on fabric I should try. I also wondered how hard it will be for me to adapt to small weave. I forced myself to finish 5 different projects that I have had sitting around before I started anything new (I will share those later in the week). 

 For those of you living in the path of hurricane Sandy,  I am praying for your safety.

Great job Michelle! I love all projects with 'Simplify'. Such a beautiful word.

I think it's so much fun when we get 'on a kick' helps our creative side come out.
Your work is so pretty and isn't it wonderful that some of our friends share their ideas with us for FREE.
