Like Mother, Like Daughter

June 12, 2007

Today I am featuring two of the Thursday stitchers with their recently completed projects. First comes Adriana who will be 91 on her next birthday in August. She produces the most amazing work and is still enjoying working on evenweave fabric. This pattern is from a magazine.

The next stitcher is Beatrice, her daughter, with her Celtic Banner. While Adriana has been stitching for 30+ years, Beatrice has only discovered the joys of cross stitching in the last 3 or 4 years. But boy has she jumped into the passtime with enthusiasm! You should see some of the beautiful designs she has stitched!

Next I have my current work in progress...I am busy trying to make a Christmas stocking for my step son . He is the only one in the family without one but I haven't been able to find the right pattern for him. What else could I do but try to design one for him myself? To that end I got the friend of a friend to translate a picture of David's race car into a cross stitch pattern and I am making a stocking around it. I have designed what I want on the leg of the stotcking but did not want to get too carried away stitching that part (which will be the easy part) before I knew that the race car would actually look like it is supposed to...so far so good... Here is what I have so far....
It is a three quarter midget race car...like a World of Outlaws car, only smaller.

David's stocking looks great, Ann! And Adriana and Beatrice's stitching is inspiring.

Nice work Ann. Look forward to seeing this stocking as it progresses. Lucky man, a stocking designed just for him.
