So I went to the county fair last week and saw some beautiful cross stitched works, and knowing that my mom knows how to cross-stitch, I asked her to teach me.  The knitter, spinner, and wool lover in me chose this little sheep as my first kit, and I finished it the morning after mom got me started.




Yesterday, I was working on cross-stitching her a thank you card and got frustrated because I had to rip out quite a bit of work because I had miscounted by one row, so I decided to do this bookmark as a break.




I got the chart for that one from Gayla on flickr.

I love the bookmark. It's something I'd love to say when I'm interrupted from a book.

Both cross stitches look very neat and the sheep is cute too!

The bookmark is fabulous, but I think I'd add something to the edges so that they don't fray. As for the sheep, well, not baaaaaa d

I swap, so in crafting terms I guess that means I put out... You?

The bookmark is on plastic canvas, so it won't fray  Wink
