A friend put out a request out to have items donated for the silent auction her charity Linked Through Love is putting on. This is my submission. There is plenty of symbolism in this piece beyond the warm/love & home the rustic appeal gives. It also promotes nutritional eating & the red winged black bird stands for "life changes". All things LTL stands for.
Pattern is Found in the September 1994 magazine For the love of Cross Stitch (a Leisure Arts distribution).

From the 2010 September Cross Stitcher Magazine. This is for my neighbour who is a huge fan of all things Grand Prix. I seen it and immediately thought of her (though it's taken a few years to get around to stitching it).

A complimentary pattern from Brooke's Books website. I altered it slightly and used 2 colours instead of just one solid floss stencilling. Not sure what I'm going to finish this as.

This year I'm aiming to be as inexpensive as possible with my stitch selections - so I'm finding plenty of freebies, tackle WIPs and start the bookmarked patterns in my collection of magazines.

This cute songster snowman is a free chart from Plum Pudding Needle Art website.

I do a lot of stitching at work & a customer cheekily asked where his piece was at. This was my Christmas answer.

I chose to stitch this bovine on sparkly white aida to give the impression of being sky bound.

A Celtic Cross from the book "Celtic Cross Stitch: over 40..."

I switched up the colours to an 800 series to give it a more earthy tone instead of the cold stone colours it called for.
Unsure on how I want to finish this.

A bookmark as per my "sneaky return" with my Lost Wife library book.
As the characters often wound up eating molded bread I changed out the white to a moss green.

This pattern is found in the book titled "Sabbat Entertaining".

Another bookmark for my 'sneaky library return'. I hope the bookmarks are actually bringing whimsy to the next in line reader.

From the book "Celtic Cross Stitch: over 40...." By Anne Orr and Leslie Clarke.

The wrong colour key was given for this project so it gives the finished product a more cold stone look (using 600's grey tones) instead of the warmer look of that illustrated in the actual book (which probably used the 800's brown/taupe tones). When I go to stitch the larger cross later on I shall use the latter for key codes.

I like reading and we have only a small library so many of our books need to come upon request from other small town libraries. This bookmark was made to accompany a certain book and upon returning the book - I also included this gift, tucked inside the pages for the next reader to use.

My husband requested his bday cross stitch be of something with autumn coloured trees because his favorite time was our wedding (which happened in the fall).

It's a 1989 leaflet (#3 - of the Four Seasons Series).

The pattern itself is missing stitches that it shows in the cover display. I just followed the pattern without adding the corrections.

Stitched for my MIL's birthday, this has all of the grand children's names and dates of birth in each of the hearts. I added a charm that says '#1 Grandma' on it (at the suggestion of my husband) to the empty heart space. Originally I was just going stitch the word "reserved" into it until either my one of my Sister in laws had another baby. ;)

Pattern can be found in Issue 177 of Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine (June 2013)
