Arts and Amusement

These are some older projects that I did several years ago. This was back in the day when we used the wooden embroidery hoops to frame many things, then glue lace around the edges. It is really hard to tell in the pictures but I had painted the hoops country blue to match the room they were in. These three hung as a group - large in the middle, with smaller ones on each side - above the blue desk that I used for my sewing machine and all that went with it. In this house I am not able to do that, so I have the large one above the chest in the bedroom and the small ones on an adjacent wall.

Without going to measure them, I think this is 12" or 14". 

These are about 8" I think. I don't feel like getting up to measure so that is as close as I am going to get. LOL This is the type of counted cross stitch that I enjoy doing the most. I love the intricate work. I really should dig through my patterns and find a project to work on now.


  1. I remember having that cross stitch pattern of the dress form. Never did finish it.Wonder where it is? The 3 together make a lovely set. If you need any unfinished projects from 30 years ago until now, my house is the place to come! Grandma D.
