LOVE cross stitch
I've finally finished something! What a good feeling. The pattern was a free download I found on this site a few months ago. A few days before Valentine's Day I thought it would a nice little project to complete before the holiday. Obviously my time estimate for the project was a bit under-estimated.
It's not a color palette I would normally gravitate towards, but it's always good to push yourself to try new things! I especially like the ornate lines of the L. I may have to buy the patterns for the whole alphabet.
In other news, the oh-so-talented Nicole at Mama Love Quilts awarded me a Liebster Award!
I've seen these on a few blogs recently and I think it's such a wonderful way to connect with new blogs! The Liebster Award goes to a deserving blog that has less than 200 followers.
Here are my award winning blogs:
Krista Stitched - another EPP enthusiast!
Kelsey Sews - I just came across her blog the other day because I liked her paper pieced mixer. She's also another Ohio girl!
Twelfth Zodiac - I envy her curves!
Heirloom Farmhouse - I found Sarah's blog through the Oliver + S sew along (her puppet theater is amazing!)
Dee's Doodles - another rose star block party-goer. I love all the bright, happy fabrics I see in her work
Go check 'em out!
