Eight more starts
Winterology by The Trilogy
I continued to start a new cross stitch piece for fifteen days. The rest of these projects are Little House Needleworks Curly Q Ewe, The Needle's Prayse The Spanish Sampler, Sam Sarah's Rise and Shine, The Examplarery The Hannah Norton Sampler, Winterology by the Trilogy, The Angel Sampler by Lavendar and Lace, Mary Jones 1801 by The Scarlet Letter and Deep Peace by Forget me nots in Stitches. I have had some of these pieces for a long time and it was fun to get them out and see how they will come together into finished pieces. I practiced patience basting all of the stitching areas in The Spanish Sampler and enjoyed all of the colors in Deep Peace.
I also finished seven kissing pillow tops. They will be made into small pillows and given to the children and loved ones of Military members who are deploying overseas. This outreach project started with the Yellow Rose Chapter of the EGA in Houston, Texas.
I work full time as an engineer and have a small craft business, What Jenny Makes. I love needlework, textiles and jewelry of all kinds and am very interested in color. I also am an avid reader, a very good cook, and an amateur photographer. You can find my work for sale at www.whatjennymakes.com or in my Etsy shop: What Jenny Makes. If you are interested in sharing my love of literature, I am the current owner of The Book Group List and The Literature Study Group in Yahoo Groups.
