Cross Stitch


Good morning everyone. This is Lynn, Bonnie’s daughter, popping in for a quick update. It’s been a while since I’ve had time to contribute to what was supposed to be a mother/daughter craft blog. My mom’s done an amazing job of making this blog something great on her own though.

As some of you may remember, I ran off to try homesteading. I’ve been growing as much of my own food as possible, learning to can and pickle, raising some angoras so I can learn to make yarn from them, and learning some more old fashioned skills. Now that the little homestead is pretty well set up, I’m finding that I have a bit of time to myself to craft again. I hope that means I will have an occasional project to contribute to the blog once more.


Recently I came across all of my old crossstitching supplies and decided to work on a handmade wall hanging for the house. I started with this Proverbs 31 pattern, because it means the most to me. Proverbs 31 is the Biblical description of a Godly woman…I read it as describing a homesteader.

progress on my proverbs 31 crossstitch

I am probably only about 1/3 of the way done, but it’s really coming together. I can’t wait to show you the finished design.

    Glad things are going well on the homestead. Like you, my cross stitching has been sorely neglected – I love the rhythm and the challenge of stitching. Your project is lovely. I hope you post a photo when it is finished. I can’t knit right now as our kitten Rosie thinks it’s a cat’s playground, but maybe cross stitching would work. I’ll have to give it a try.

    Ah yes! I created a cedar chest top using that pattern you are using adding Nordic stitching and some quilting to fill out the whole area. I was sent a pair of stork scissors and honorable mention by the Lane company. Enjoy your project!

    This will be something to behold when it’s finished. I look forward to seeing how you frame it.

    I’ve been a cross-stitcher for yrs…thought it had mostly died away. Nice to see your lovely work. I’m taking a break from my stitching to play with my new cutting machines as I enjoy making cards.
