My name is Theresa and I come from a family of stitchers and sewers. Oddly enough, no one taught me how to stitch. I did however spend many hours watching my mom as she stitched and lots of time admiring my Great Aunt’s many embroidered blocks and quilts.This is were my love for stitching began.
This is my Great, Great Aunt. She was a lady who loved her quilts and had many of them. She also the was the one who taught my Mom to make quilts and to embroidery.
Here is my baby quilt my Mom made. Purple gingham……….
…….. and cross stitched embroidered blocks. My Mom hand quilted it as well. It’s so frail and stained. Not sure how that happened. I love it anyway.
Years later I taught myself to cross stitch. That was about 25yrs ago and I still love it today. I would like to show you a few of my favorite pieces of what I still have. I’ve got a big habit of giving away most of what I make.
Here are a couple completed stitchery’s from that my stash.
Besides this one that is obviously for me, I also stitched one for my DH and my Sweet Pies. I think I collected every stocking pattern that was published for this line.
This was the first time I ever worked with uneven linen and the last. Even though I love this stitchery, uneven linen is not for me. So you know, I do absolutely love even linen.
Here it is. The project I didn’t get finished when I participated in the ‘Tammy For All Seasons‘.
I also enjoy soft doll making, applique, embroidery, still love’n crochet, gardening, floral design, cake decorating, diy projects/decorating, and paper crafts. Here are a some examples on my favorite list from past blog hops.
Giveaway now closed.
