Progress and a Thank You!

Thank you all so very much for your comments on my design. I do hope that you were all very honest with me because if not you will have to be looking at horrible designs coming soon! I do plan to keep going and see where it leads! So, thank you all so very much, you have no idea how you good you made me all feel about it.

I have done a little stitching this week. I got two ATC's made and ready to be mailed so I can not show those until they reach their destination's! I have made some decent progress on WW. I love this pattern, it is so fun to stitch!I am working on getting a LK design ready to stitch for my upcoming exchange! I have the pattern picked out, which will be one of LK's freebies but not sure how I will be finishing it yet.

My husband and son had a fun Saturday. My DH is wanting to learn to make handmade bows. He don't really have any of the tools or anything but he decided that he would make DS a bow and just have a good time. The finished product turned out pretty good! DS loves it! Hubby even found a stick to make an "arrow".Now it is time for a laugh. I was looking through some of my fabric that I don't get into very often and come across something pretty funny! I found my very first cross stitch item! LOL, it is totally awful! None of my stitches went in the right direction or anything. I have seen many people stitch something for the first time and it look pretty great, but not this!! I TRIED to teach myself and did not have anyone around that knew anything about cross stitch and so that is my excuse! LOL Anyway, here it is, please don't laugh to hard!I want to wish all of those who celebrate Memorial Day here in the US a wonderful and Blessed day. If you plan to travel any, please stay safe! Just remember all those brave men and women who have served for this country!

I pray that you all have a wonderful and Blessed weekend and week!

Happy Stitching,
Cindy Mae

Hi Cindy
I think your hubby did a great job on the bow. I love your new stitching project too. It will look fantastic when it's finsihed

You did a great job on the design below so I can't wait to see it stitched!

How precious is that first cross stitch...just think of it's value as the year's past by! Thanks for sharing.

Great bow! Your 1st project looks fine, mine was a frog for a card that a friend bought me :-)

Good job on WW!! and that is really exciting that you have your first cross-stitch! I can't remember what I stitched first!

Good progress on WW...I look forward to future posts of the progress and it's finish :). I love when needlework bloggers post their first stitched pieces. Yours is great. Do you remember the year you taught yourself and completed it? Could finish it as an ornament with the date on the back (just a thought). I wish that I still had my first piece...for all I know it might be in some of those boxes with "high school" written on the outside.
Have a good day!

How cool to have your first design! Great progress. Sounds like fun times at home with the family!

Nice progress on your WW! I enjoyed seeing your first project. Mine was a kiddie kit, because, like you, I didn't have anybody to teach me. I wish I'd saved it!

DH and DS did a nice job on the bow. :) Looking forward to seeing your LK piece finished. Your WIP looks nice. Isn't it fun to find our "old" pieces and laugh about them?

Your project is looking good. You know all of our first attempts aren't too great. At least you kept yours. My first two ended up in the garbage!
