Finally! I Am Stitching Again!
There's a new little beastie in our extended family, and I decided it was time to dust off the needles and get to work. I am making a Brooke's Books pattern for her. I only have one piece done so far, but it's a start! I will do my best to post updates as I go. This piece will be mounted on a clothesline over one of my own photos.

Current Work in Progress
Looks like I'm finally back into the swing of things a bit, stitching wise anyway. ;) I find that as I get older, I like using perforated paper more and more....

It's been W A Y too long since I posted here....and way too long since I've stitched. I got back into it with a small project, but I have plans for more!

Coloring with Beads
I have stepped away from my cross stitch for the past several months and been working with beads instead of thread. My creations center on book thongs (re: bookmarks), suncatchers, and necklaces. You can find my work on my etsy site at ~DKBB~ Creations. Below is a sampling of my coloring with beads:

You Are Loved
I found this Hinzeit pattern while I was on vacation in Las Vegas last spring (Stitcher's Paradise - most awesome stitching store ever), and felt that it spoke to some folks I know. It is supposed to be stitched on 28-count Jobelan lambswool, but I wanted a quick project for the holidays, so I opted to do it on 14-count perforated paper. I rather like the way it turned out. There are 3 small glass heart charms yet to add to it. I will have it mounted on a black mounting board and custom framed (I'll try to post a picture of the completed project).
