It's time to share my 2022 cross stitch project! I know...can't believe I'm cross stitching again after decades away! But I've been inspired by Pinterest and blogs - especially Jo's Country Junction. Jo is an avid quilter, but she's taken up cross stitch, too. The above picture is Jo's Anniversaries of the Heart piece that she made during 2021. There is a block for each month, along with two bonus blocks. The idea is that your personalize each block based on members of your family.
I've been watching her (via her blog) work on this and have been smitten with it. So here I am undertaking a HUGE cross stitch project! Anniversaries of the Heart was designed by Blackbird Designs and is several years old. The monthly patterns are sold separately.
A friend gave me these adorable little scissors which I'm keeping with this project - perfection!
And yes, I've started! And yese, I'll still be quilting! Quilting will always be my Number One! I'll dedicate this first month to my husband and put his info on it.
I rarely share photos of Sadie on social media, but I had to share this picture of her with this year's bird ornament. Cuteness overload!
Continue to stay safe!
