Cross-Stitch Elephant Pillow - Wordless Wednesday (Linky)

Tuesday, May 22, 2012


While visiting with friends, I noticed they still had this cross-stitch elephant I had made many years ago after they had gotten engaged. And they still have it! It means a lot that they have taken such care of it since it took forever to stitch the pattern. That was back in the day when I made time for crafts. I imagine when I retire, I will take up cross-stitching again.

    1. Thanks, Brandi! My mother had helped me to make a custom pillow for the cross-stitch. I guess I get my creative itch from her!

    1. No. It's very time-consuming and requires a lot of focus, which is hard to come by when you have to referee sibling rivalry.

    1. It's actually quite easy to do if you have the patience. Knitting and crocheting? Now there's something I haven't tried yet.

    1. My mother used to embroider and tried to teach me when I was younger but I couldn't get it to be as good as hers. It sure isn't easy.

    1. I did a google search and found it in a book that is now out of print. Good news is that it is available for purchase (download only delivered by email) here: http://www.gloria-pat.com/webpages/HL9.html
