Cross Stitch

Last year, in May, Elizabeth began learning cross stitch. Her first completed project was an apple.Yesterday she completed a squirrel;
Which I turned into a mini-quilt.
Now that the squirrel is finished her newest project is a duck.
We have been slowly making mini-quilts to hang on Elizabeth's wall; the quilts so far consists of Elizabeth's cross stitch and my hand embroidery and patchwork.
So far we have 4 completed quilts; and I still need to turn the apple into a mini-quilt. This has been a slow but fun project.

I remember doing a cross stitch sampler in 4th grade. It was fun. I think I still have it somewhere.

Wow, what a great accomplishment for her! Great memories in the making, not to mention instilling the love of sewing and quilting in her. Way to go Elizabeth!
