So Valentines was last weekend and that means Windy got something cross stitched instead of shiny or put-it-in-a-vase-and-watch-it-die-y!

I know the first one has been done a lot but I have been meaning to do it and since I can't top last years model (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=290721.0), that gave me free reign. I guess this is what it feels like to have immunity on Project Runway. I could cross stitch a monkey opening a coconut with a turtle and it won't matter because last year was so great! That said I was really happy with how it turned out and she loved it too. Already framed and displayed too!



The second I did just because I have wanted to do it for a while now and never got around to it. I was going to do it a different way but I really wanted something fast so I did a pretty straight forward thing.

Those turned out wonderful.  That's an incredibly sweet idea for Valentines!  I too have been thinking 'bout stitching the wookie quote, but haven't gotten around to it...yet

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
