Quilting! Sewing! Pressing! I'm in heaven! This here little top is done! It is 60x72. I just love this design. I found it in a book a long time ago and have had it in my head ever since. Below is a close up of four blocks together.

The greatest thing about this top is that all the units were already made from other projects! The four patches from this design I decided I didn't like

and the hst's from a creamy and scrappy swap.

And small progress on the cross stitch! I found this ruler at Jo-Ann's. It has a counter for the size Aida cloth. Hopefully this will help. I haven't had to do too much fudging yet!

This is my newest project. It is counted cross stitch. But I have a problem. I can't count! I count 42 little squares on the pattern and then stitch 42 little x's and then recount, and there are 45! aargh! How do you avoid this??! This little picture will be 16x20.

Still working on the lillies. I am clipping the seams, and then will sew the horizontal lines.
