{ H A P P Y .. M E M O R I A L .. D A Y }

I crosstitched for years before I learned to knit. I started when I was pregnant with Trevor 17 years ago. I just love how it seems like you are painting your own artwork with thread, just like making your own clothes/accessories with yarn in knitting. I have a lot of my crosstitch framed but I have ALOT that is not. My favorite subjects are Americana and Pumpkins and Fall. This is a little free pattern from Erica Michaels Designs that I stitched in 2003 when all this started. I just now whipped it into a heart today. I would love to get all my finished pieces either framed or made into a pillow .

This Marine Corps Ball picture is my favorite :) I think I look skinny in this one :) David says they are waiting until they come back to hold the Marine Corps Ball this year. I am on the lookout for a white ball gown . I have not worn white yet, and since I will be so tan I think it will be perfect. And I hope the ball is in Waikiki! That is even better than San Diego !

Well off to create... I've got Christmas on the brain, I know I'm weird, it's just that it is my favorite time of the year and that means David will be home :)
