X-stitch Pictures to Share..............

Hi everyone!..It has finally cooled down here after a week of near 90 and over 90 temps....We finally gave in and turned on the A/C for a few days....It was terrible!!!..But today is perfect with a high of 73...And with a bit of rain last night it makes it more bearable with all this yellow haze of pollen on everything....And then right down the road The Masters is in it's 2nd day..I always pull for Phil!!!...Do any of your husband's watch it??...It is a beautiful golf course..We've been several times...

But this week I've been working on sewing boxes and doing some organizing...I wanted to share these two pictures I came across that I had forgotten about...The Amish one is a Diane Graebner design that I stitched on aida in 2005..I really like a more uniformed look for pictures like this, so i opt for aida material...I have some more of hers that I want to get done that I've had for several years...I think it's time to get busy!!

The little girl was stitched on aida in 2001...I can't remember off the top of my head who the designer was of this beautiful design...It was a book of several designs...I made it for Taylor, but her taste were changing as she was growning up.... So I think this will go to my first granddaughter...

Well, I'm off to play wih Luke..He has his "Cars" collection out...My favorite of course is Mater....He always cracks me up in the cartoon...I may be popping in with some more pics here and there to share, so check back...Until next time...hugs, Jen

Those must have taken some time to finish, they're very nice!
Little boys are so much fun, I know mine were. Hold him tight, as you know, they grow up so soon.

We have the same yellow pollen here - it is supposed to be the worst pollen count in years here.

I have an Amish cross stitch in my laundry room - I wonder if it is the same artist??

Of course my DH watches the Open and every other golf tournament he can when he is not golfing or working! LOL
