Box Finishing Class

Meari from ILCS (I Love Cross Stitch) is teaching an on-line class on how to finish your cross stitch into a box.  The first assignment is to stitch up your piece and purchase a box with coordinating fabric.  Here is what I have so far: 
I am so excited to see this come to life! 
Thank you Meari for teaching this class!!
Oops I almost forgot to mention this pattern is from Just Cross Stitch Magazine Christmas Ornaments Edition (2010) p. 11 and was designed by Lori Markovic from La-D-Da.

Victorian Angel

This is the first of four total Victorian Angels.  The pattern is from Silhouettes in Cross Stitch (1998) by Julie Hasler (p. 31) and was stitched using DMC 325.  My friend Rachel (who is the co-owner of WOCS - World of Charity Stitching) donated this book to me last year.  I'm so happy to finally have been able to use it.  Thanks again Rachel!

Finally.....A Finish

    Sadly I have had some unforeseen circumstances going on in my personal life and as a result I lost my stitching mojo for about 2 months. 
I know....can you believe it?   
But....My Mojo is back!!! 
And I've finally finished my Star Gazer Lily by Solaria Gallery.

I have added two pictures because of the difference in lighting.
This is one of my favorite pieces!
