    em, I may have a few unstitched cross stitch kits myself. I gave most to my neighbour, about 10 years ago now. I held on to a few though, still undone!

    I tend to put my finished cross-stitch pieces into quilts of various sizes. =)

  3. Oh they are so sweet! I’m glad Sue decided to open and stitch them, they are very special.
    Years ago I worked in a frame shop and we framed many cross stitched pieces. They always looked beautiful. The labor charge for stretching the piece into perfect alignment was a bit pricey though.

    Cross stitch is something I don’t do, so I have no ideas for you, really – maybe on a pocket on a stitchery tote bag? These are both very cute designs and it looks like Sue did a beautiful job. she must enjoy it. LOL

    Most definitely very English cross stitch! Weather often prevents sailings between Nth and Sth but rarely flights so you were very unlucky, although now when I think of it fog can be a big issue.

    Hello Roseanne, Both of these are adorable cross stitch projects and I hope that Sue does enjoy doing them. One idea for framing them that I saw recently was the cross stitch was stretched tightly around a wooden embroidery hoop and stapled in place (in a few places) and then glued. The person then put the top ring around and decorated it with laces and beads. It was a beautiful wall hanging in the end. Sorry that I can not remember where I did see it at, most likely pinterest. I like all of the other suggestions/ideas also. I have a lot of cross stitch patterns that I will never do because of my love for hand embroidery, would Sue be interested in any of my patterns? Today, I am working on an applique pattern of bears using double sided interfacing. I am already excited to get stitching only it will be at least one more day of preparations before that happens. LOL. What are you working on, Roseanne? Have a fantastic day!!

    Wow that brings back memories-I used to do a fair amount of CCstitch. Lots of snowman pictures were made. How about making pillows? haha I see Wendy already suggested that.

  8. Oh, there is hope fo my cross-stitches that went away when I started quilting then. I have to say that the most common thing I have done with my cross-stitcheries is to have them framed.

  9. Oh my, I haven’t done counted cross stitch in years! This sure brings back memories. As far as finishing them, you could frame them. Or you could make a fun little wallhanging with them. If they are square and the same size, you could add star points to each one and sew the two blocks together, add a border, and finish it off for a cute little wall hanging. Pillows, maybe (although pillows here get kinda wrecked).

Please leave a reply - we would love to hear from you!
