A summer of embroidery Pt2

Anna Fields EmbroideryAnna Fields EmbroideryAnna Fields Embroidery

On my summer vacations, as I previously mentioned I started some cross stitch projects, which are now finished. During my almost 3 month vacations, I managed to finish 3 projects, including this one (which was huge for me).

I wanted to try a sampler cross stitch and found this book of Anna Fields, that has some amazing cross stitch patterns! I was immediately in love!

I chose this one as a first totally by chance, and nearly on the finish line I realised how true where the words I was stitching (for that period of my life, since we were moving to a different town). This one is going to my niece’s nursery (her name is Anna).

I loved cross stiching on a 28 count Jubillee so much, that Aida seems now really “cheep”.

Linking to Amanda, over at Crazy Mom Quilts, for a super Finish-It-Up-Friday!



Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.
