So back to my original question. What happens when Dan runs out of things to paint??? The answer is...he learns to cross stitch.
I started about two weeks ago and I have made several different things. These four are finally ready to be shared.
The first one is this little pillow with a primitive Christmas tree with the word joy under it. This is my creation completely. I drew the pattern out using graph paper. Then I tea stained the fabric. Today I spent the day with my mom. She is teaching me to sew. I made this pillow by myself. Well, almost by myself. My mom was guiding me. Not bad for a first try.
This is the back side of the pillow. Both sides have been tea stained.
I also made this cross stitched pumpkin. The pumpkin and letters are a variation of a pattern I found. The black bird is my creation. My mom made the pillow for this cross stitched creation.
This is the back of the pillow.
This little guy is another one of my creations. I drew it out using graph paper. My mom did the sewing on this one.
Then finally I made this one. This is completely by a pattern. Again, I cross stitched it and my mom did the sewing.
I would love to know what you think. Be looking for more of my creations in the near future. My mom and I had a wonderful day today and I guess the old saying is true, we are never too old to learn.
Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you will continue to come back as often as you can. Don't forget to look for Yesterday Once More on facebook. I would love for you to stop by there too.
