Whatcha Workin on Wednesday

Hello everyone. Just want to share what I finished today. My Believe stitchery that I have been working on, seems like forever. Don't look too close cuz it's the first one I have ever finished. Usually I start stitching and it isn't coming out the way I want so I don't finish. This one was so simple. It's a pattern from Shelly Auen over at I love her patterns. Actually I started this on linen and boy was that hard to do. I couldn't even see the holes where I was suppose to be stitchin and it wasn't coming out to good. So i decided to go with aida cloth instead and glad I did. It was alot easier for me to see. I still have to do something with the back and not sure what to do or how but I will get it figured out.
Last night my DH finished the deck so now I have another place I can do some fall decorating,YIPPEE! I will probly put a bench some pumpkins and mums and not sure what else. I will post a couple pics as soon as I get it decorated.
That's it for today. Hope everyone is having a great week.
Until next time,

Very nice, Sherri! I admire others cross stitch's really neat but I just don't know if it's for me. So anyone that can do it, deserves a huge pat on the back as far as I'm concerned :)

Have a great day!

Great job on the cross stitch!! I bought a magnifying glass that hangs around my neck at Joann Fabrics to cross stitch on the smaller weaves. It works great!!

Looking forward to seeing your fall pics!

Take care,

Sherri, Your home is so beautiful! And that stitchery is wonderful too! Don't give up- once you get the hang of it, it's very easy! Question, did you try one thread over two on the linen? if you have any questions, you can email me. I'd hate to see you give up :)
