Welcome back! I have made a new goal for myself this year to keep you updated on my latest projects. You might remember me showing you a beautiful BIG cross stitch pattern that Kevin bought me in China.

A month ago I was tidying up in my stitch room when I noticed my Chinese Ladies cross stitch project. I don’t know why or how but I felt my mother say to me, Why don’t you get back to stitching on this piece? So I decided then and there to pick it up again and set it up downstairs in the family room and be with Kevin in the evenings. I used a new Q-Snap frame that is big enough to handle this extra large sized piece of fabric – over 7 feet wide!

When Kevin came home that night, he told me Its the second year of your mom’s passing today. What made you bring that work out today? So Mom if you can read this, know that I was listening to you.

I am absolutely loving working with silk and rayon threads. And of course, I am choosing my own colors. Those of you who know me well, know that I always choose my own colors and I rarely ever keep the colors suggested in a pattern! I make every cross stitch picture that I stitch mine!

I don’t know how long it will take me to finish this project but I am so enjoying the work, I’m not worried! I promise to post more pictures of my progress!

Here are a few pictures of this fantastic project! Let me know what you think!

For those of you coming with me to Camp Wanna Stitch in May, I will have my big frame set up!

May all your days be filled with blessings and lots of stitching!! Katherain
