Seasons of Life ... Time to Cross Stitch

I used to do cross stitch when my children were very young... before our homeschooling days.  Now that our youngest is about to move out of the house for college [bittersweet to me]  I've picked it back up again.

How do you like these two cards I made last week?

I also tried my hand(s) at quilling... something I'd only done once before marriage, before kids...  It was quite easy to do.  Saving these pieces to add embellishments to cards at a later time.

Working with your hands can be a pleasurable way to spend some time, especially if doing something mundane like watching television in the evenings... handmade gifts are so cherished.  Give a little of yourself to someone else...

1 Thess 4:11 and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and attend to your own business and work with your hands...

I remember my days of cross stitch as well .. you reminded me of a project I had started and never quite finished. I should get it back out and do just that! homemade cards like yours mean so much more to those who receive them ... they are very nice! I've not done any quilling, although I did more sewing when we were homeschooling ... when our boy was much younger. how i miss those days! I found your site through sweet shot tuesday's link-up. hope you have a blessed week!
