Counted cross stitch

It's been a long time since I worked on a cross-stitch project. I have half-finished one that is a birth announcement for my now 10 or 11 year old niece, but I can't seem to find it! (Not that that's a shock since most of my belongings are still in storage, but since I started it after my move across country it is a bit of a mystery!)

I've been looking for a small project that won't take up too much space (as I don't have a lot to spare) and will satisfy my need to craft. A year, maybe two, ago I picked up this cute little kit. It's sat on my shelf in the other room ever since, but about a month ago, I really was craving to start something.

I love that it's so portable and I can bring it outside when I take the dog out in the morning. It's also giving me a great sense of completion which boosts my delicate confidence.

Purple Haze

Two Christmas' ago, I made my boyfriend's mother a quilt in purple batiks. It's a quilt I still love, today! It's beautiful and adds such a pop of color to her guest room. We steal it every time we spend the night. :)
