About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

CROSS-STITCHING AT SIMPLESEW

I JUST LOVE CROSS-STITCHING, I STARTED AT A VERY EARLY AGE OF 12. IF I DONT STITCH A FEW STITCHES EVERYDAY, I GET "STITCH ANXIETY". i love stitching pieces that commemorate an event in my life, like this piece here for my ganddaughter lillyAnn. I have enjoyed crossing over into quilting and adding my cross-stitching TO ITEMS I MAKE. here is my current item i am working on for the Season by hand at clover and violet's blog......I sorta designed this, its different elements from different patterns.

SOME:  examples of what I have made in the past





 sorry for the blurry pics, they were taken from previous post so maybe thats why !
