Show and Tell Friday - Needle Point

Its Show and Tell Friday already again at Kelli's House. Happy Friday to you!

This week I am showing some cross stitch and embroidery items in my home.

My husband inherited this beautiful piece from his mother. I think it was a gift to his mother from a friend of hers. It's hanging in our living room with pictures of our children on each side.



This is a Spring pocketbook I made a couple of years ago. The "J" is cross stitched. I'm thinking about using this bag today. Our temperatures today and this weekend are going to be in the 70s. Can you say "Spring"?!!!



I cross stitched this a few years ago.



We found these two at a yard sale.




My North Carolina readers will understand this one! My sweet Sister in Law made this for her brother, my hubby. GO PACK!




I cross stitched this one right after Josh died.



Its very interesting to see things other ladies have in their homes, so check out Kelli's House for more Show and Tell Friday Post.

Your needlepoint projects are nice. I used to do a lot of cross stitch, but it's not my favorite thing to do anymore. I, too, have bought some samplers and cross stitch items from yard sales. Knowing the time that goes into making a piece, I also find it hard to believe that someone would sell it on a yardsale.

What a nice collection of cross-stitch. I read the biscuit recipe, and the recipe I use is very similar.

I'm just now finishing up a cross stitch that is my biggest project so far. It will be worth it, though. You have a great collection of cross-stitches. I find they make the best gifts. People seem to really appreciate the time and effort put into these projects.
I have an award for you over at my blog. :)

Hi Debbie,
From your friend who cannot sew anything worth a darn, I must say I love all your different cross-stitched items.

It's so nice to get to see some of the things in your home since I can't drop by to visit (wish I could). :)

Enjoy your lovely weather!

These needlepoint pieces are just adorable! I can't imagine the time that went into making these.

Thanks for showing these to us!

Love your cross stitch pieces... I have some that I got from yard sales too... I cannot imagine someone taking all that time to cross stitch something and then put it on a yard sale... but I'm so glad they did...;)

What a lovely blog you have! I am putting you on my links; I think we have a lot in common. I quilt and sew and paint, etc. I will come back when I have a little more time to really browse and enjoy your nice pictures!
