A small finish!




This is be silly by My Mark Designs, a quick little stitch in some of my favorite colors-pinks. I did this on 30 ct. lullaby pink with WDW sweetheart rose. I think the camera flash washes out the pretty pink-even though it is pale irl. I am going to put this in my daughter's room and most likely finish it as a cube. I seem to to be on a cube kick. There is another pattern in this chart pack called be honest, that I may stitch in blues for my son's room. Think they will get the hint? LOL

Speaking of My Mark Designs , Monique had a contest on her blog recently of which the winner would receive a chart of their choice. Yes, I was the lucky winner of the chart and I chose daydream that you see below. I guess, I will have to stop saying I never win anything-LOL Thanks so much Monique!


Well, I have still have been buying some stash. I must resist or should I say resistance is futile-LOL Has anyone seen the new pattern called the giving sisters by Not Forgotten Farm? Too cool and right up my alley. Currently stitching on Salem Sisters and working on my birthday exchange. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Hi Sharon,
I love coming to your site. You are such an inspiration to me. After many years of cross stitching, I almost gave it up but now I am back with it and rembering how much I love it. Have a beautiful day.

Nice finish, Sharon! That's funny about putting "be honest" in your son's room :)

Love the cute finish, I could come up with a few of mine own, lol.
I have The Giving Sisters on my list. This time of year with all the new designs is driving me crazy, lol. I could list a few more, but that might tempt you, lol.

Love 'Salem' and I'm looking forward to progress pictures Sharon.
Great colors for Cirque. Is there anyone besides me who is not in the process of starting to stitch this design? I see it popping up everywhere.
Hope all went well at the oral surgeon's and you are feeling better if poorer now.

Cute finish, my DD loves pinks too. I'm not familiar with Giving Sisters, do you have a picture of what it will look like finished? Salem Sisters was looking great in your last post, I'm looking forward to seeing an update of your progress.
