Sew Crafty Friday for October 3
Well, it's Sew Crafty Friday again. I don't have a lot to share today, but wanted to show the progress on a second cookbook and on the "Snow Angels" cross stitch.
This cookbook has an apple theme for the cover, since the couple I'm giving this to is having a fall wedding. And here's what the back cover looks like. I only have a few pages in this book so far. I have many printed out, but only a few embellished and in place. Here are two of them. Now for the cross-stitch. Here's how it's coming along. It's a relief to have the two children mostly completed. They are definitely the most complicated part of the design. Lots of shading. And this will give you an idea of how the completed piece will look. How about you? If you have managed to accomplish or even start any crafting this week, then head on over to Waiting for Him and share your projects. Shereen and others will be eager to see what you have to share.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
