My first cross stitch in over ten years....

I have another new addiction~cross stitch. I haven't done this in over 10 years, but decided to try again after seeing all of the wonderful things others were making.

I stitched this picture up using a freebie design by Betty of Primitive Bettys . She has a wonderful blog and her patterns are so wonderfully prim. My picture is stitched on tea dyed 18 count aida cloth with brown valdani thread. The frame is painted a nice old brown with a gold basecoat.

I love how this picture turned out. I am definately going to be stitching up more of her freebie patterns. Now I just need to get a magnifying glass so that I can stitch on some smaller sized fabric. I'm wanting to make some pin keeps for gifts for the girls in my quilting group.

I am so looking forward to tomorrow. I have the day off & I need to get going on some of my unfinished projects.

Have a wonderful evening and don't forget that the deadline to enter my giveaway is this Saturday the 27th.
