Back to School, Colds, and more Pears...


Well now that school has started both Fiona and Alexa have nasty colds. I have also gotten a cold so I have not been very productive this past week. I decided to post some pictures of some previous cross stitch projects that I have done. Fittingly enough, I completed this Pear Sampler in the Spring of 2007. I believe the pattern is by JBW Designs and it came from the Spring 2007 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine. It hangs in our living room now. I thought it was appropriate to post being that we have picked a ton of pears this year. I have started a cross stitch for my sister for our birthday in November and I have finished the matching redwork piece to the Live Simply one I finished last week. I will have pictures of both soon. This week however, the number one project is Halloween costumes! Fiona wants to be a cheerleader and Alexa wants to be a monkey. Have a great week.

The pear is so pretty. I haven't cross stitched a thing in years , but that's so elegant it makes me want to try ita again! Hope you're getting better--hate those back to school germs.

Cassie, you won't believe this--I noticed a delightful emb holiday idea in a magazine the other day-I thought of you as the 12 days of Christmas was stitched on pear shapes & placed onto a quilted wall hanging. Here you are, already stitching pears!! Lovely! Holler at me & I'll scan it, if you want to see!

I LOVE this! Of course, I have a pear fetish...but this is just beautiful!
You mentioned where you found the pattern, do they have back issues, or a website?
Have fun making Halloween costumes! T

that pear is lovely! I've not had much time for stiching lately, but perhaps tomorrow!
