Happy Moments

Completing a cross stitch pattern

I learned to cross stitch in elementary school. Back when learning to crochet, embroider, cross stitch, and knit was still part of the curriculum. I know, crazy. 
Cross stitching has been a part of my life ever since and from time to time I get the call to start a new project. Here's one that I have been working on for a few days.

Going Back

It's been years! Yes, years since the last time I posted something. I confess that during that time, I even forgot about my once loved blog. But as with many things, the best way to go back is to start. So without further ado, here I go again.

Backyard Friends! I purchased this lovely birdhouse at a local craft fair. I particularly liked the use of recycled materials that enhance it. Like the trim on the door opening made of a lamp fixture. The cleaning opening on the back is made of a can lid. I love that!
I was really happy that after only a few days of setting it in the backyard, there was a potential tenant.
