Primitive Calendar Stitch-Along

Do you need a 2016 calendar?

Joyful World on Facebook is hosting a SAL of a twelve-month cross-stitched 2016 calendar. The patterns are her designs. The design for January has been posted to the files of the group, along with the thread list, etc.

You need to have a FB account in order to send her a request to join the group.

 Happy stitching!

This is my progress on "Patti Dovecoat." I need to buy a pair of clip-on magnifying glasses to be able to work better on this high-count fabric. Pattern is by Kathy Barrick.

Abe Lincoln Silhouette

This is how much I have stitched on "Abe Lincoln 1865."  Pattern is by Joyce Reed Folk Art.

Happy New Year 2016!

It's been a long time since I have done any cross stitch, and even longer since I posted here. I relocated here to Asheville last September. I have taken up my cross stitch again as I feel that concentrating on only one craft at a time (my knitting), has caused me to finish less projects. Now that I have a smartphone, I will be uploading pics tomorrow of my current cross stitch, and will update all of the side links and blogs that I visit.

  Happy stitching, everyone!
