#2--this one is for my grandson Marcus, if he keeps
dating and marries that cute little farm girl, Morgan.
#7--this is the one I gave to grand daughter Helene,
I need to do one more. I know the one I want to do. It is another Noah's Ark one, but it is expensive. I search E-Bay every now and then and also check the Salvation Army store. When Dar worked at the SA, one like I wanted came in and she grabbed it. She showed it to me and I asked her if I could buy it from her.
She said, "Oh. No. I'm going to make this one."
"I didn't know you cross stitched."
"I haven't in years, but one day, I will again. I do lovely work."
That was 4 years ago. She doesn't have the patience to sit and cross stitch. I doubt she will ever make that quilt. She has no expected grand babies or great grand babies.
So I just keep looking. These are stamped cross stitch, so I kind of "sew" them rather than do the "punch" method. I don't want any stitches to show on the back of the quilt, so I move the needle between the layers.
Della is 3 months old today.
