When I was old enough, my mom finally taught me how to do cross stitch. I would start one and she would finish it. I never had the attention span to finish a design. The only one I ever finished was for a friend who was getting married....and well, that marriage did not last.
When I saw the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's cross stitch patterns I knew it was time to pick up the hobby again. Their patterns are super adorable. Have you seen their winter wonderland countdown sampler?? It's on my wishlist. I signed up right away when I saw they were releasing a Woodland Sampler starting in January. Each pattern/design is released around the 1st of the month and so far I'm loving it!

February's block isn't completed yet. I think I'm going to outline around the raccoon's eyes a little more and fill in the moon. Probably filling the moon in with the dark blue so that the "e" in February is visible.
|March - Marchy McMushroom|
I had always intended to make a cross stitch for Emma's birth, but was too worried I would lose interest and never finish. Since April 1st is so far away, I'll probably purchase another Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery pattern and add Emma's birth stats to it because the poor girl has next to nothing hanging on her walls!
