I know a lovely young lady by the name of Kathryn. This summer she required surgery and was housebound for the whole summer! Being the sunny young lady that she is she spent her time having fun with family, books and cross-stitch!!! Oh yes, there is some rug hooking, ornament making and crocheting too! Above is the towel that she cross-stitched for her Mom's birthday!!! Please note the bottom right hand of the towel where Kathryn cross-stitched a special message to her Mom. What a sweet message.
Kathryn's grandma is my friend Lorie. Kathryn's Mom, Susan, is my friend. Actually, Lorie is my husband's aunt and Susan is his cousin. But we all really love spending time together so we are friends first!
Lorie taught Kathryn to cross-stitch and they are working on this bag together; each cross-stitching one side of the bag. They will pass the bag back and forth.
Doesn't that stitching "To Grandma" just melt your heart???
Darling Christmas ornament!
These little Salt and Sugar projects are so dear!!!
And now for the shocking part.....Kathryn is only 10 years old!!!! She will be 11 in December! I think she is displaying some amazing talent! Perhaps she will be designing cross-stitch projects for us all in a couple of years!!!!
Kathryn, thank you for sharing your work with us! I know your Mom and Grandma are so proud of you! I am too! I am so happy that you are enjoying the needle arts! You are a very special girl!
