1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My First Scarf on: February 09, 2015 03:27:11 PM
So, my boyfriend is from Arizona but now he's living in Oklahoma. That means sometimes it gets really cold here, and he's just not adapted for our winters at all. Since I took up knitting last year about this time, I offered in the fall to make him a scarf if he was interested. He accepted my offer so I let him pick out the yard I'd use and I got to work on his special request for an extra long scarf. Below is the result.



2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / My first completed cross-stitch (Cross cross stitch) on: June 06, 2013 08:27:48 PM
While I have started another cross-stitch project before this one, this is the first one I ever managed to finish.

The reason I decided upon this particular cross is because in the church in which I grew up, the Presbyterian Womens group had given a member of our church a gift of a cross-stitched cross almost identical to this to one of our members. When that church closed it's doors earlier this year, I wanted something to remember that church by, and all the memories it had given me growing up. Since I had just started to cross-stitch, I decided to make my own pattern based upon the work that had hung in the narthex of the church all those years. This is the result.

Needless to say, I learned a *lot* while making this piece.
