My first big piece I ever did


I finally have a picture of the first big piece
I ever did. This was given to my dad years
ago. I wish I knew the year. This is in a
frame under glass. It was hard to get a good
picture but this is pretty good. I finally
remembered to get a picture when I went to
visit him in NJ. I am so happy I finally
remembered to get a picture for my blog.

What a beautiful stitched piece Cindy! That surely must have taken time to finish.
Isn't it touching how our parents treasure our stitching?

Your ornaments on your previous posts are adorable. What a cutie for your daughter....lots of love in that one!
Merry looks great...I like opalescent linen too!
Moda fabrics are the best, aren't they?

It's nice that he still has it around. I know my parents still have all the pieces I've made them. I can't say the same for friends!

Cindy, I love the pic on your blog opening. That is a christmas plate from the magazine Cross Stitch and country crafts isn't it? I had the magazine years ago. I had a collection of them but lost them in my move south.

That was your first piece? Impressive!

Oh, Cindy, I love this detailed piece. All the time you spent on this & all the colors.
I did a Noah's Ark as a banner for S.S. It took a while also.

That must have taken an incredible amount of time, Cindy--a true "labor of love" for your dear father. I'm sure he thinks of you each time he sees it...Really lovely :)
