a stitch in time

Following up from my cross stitch post, I managed to whip out two easy and meaningful projects.  I'm still working on my coasters, since those require alot more attention to detail it will be awhile before I share those.

In the meantime here are my easy cross stitch projects

  wedding initials and date cross stitch minis

The one on right was a shower present for my friend- she is getting married so soon!  I'm a bridesmaid in her wedding so I wanted to make her something special that she could keep forever.

Here is a grainy photo to show you the finished hanging project

I just used an Ikea Ribba frame with a custom cut mat (love custom mats, they make inexpensive frames look awesome).  I didnt want it to be too country love, and with the modern Ribba frame I think its simple and sweet.

I have to take a better photo of mine (that I JUST hung, better late than never) and I'll be sure to post that too.

Happy Tuesday!

Fabulous! And you are right about veering too far towards country--you've done a great job at keeping the stitchery look very modern!

LOVE this! I've been learning how to sew and have mastered the stitch, so I could make an assortment of fabulous things like this. Thanks for the idea :)
