Cross Stitch!!

I had made up my mind that I needed to get a hobby. So off to the store I went to see what I would be OK at doing. I found some string, needles, and a canvas bag. Earlier I found a pattern online for this cute little bird done by cross stitch. Here is my work!

This is the little book bag/tote that I worked on. Very first of many projects that I will be working on now (seeing that I did an OK job!).
This is the bird close up. It's not great, but I got the hang after a while. I need to figure a way to make the pattern easier to follow other than dots.
And what is a post without pictures of GRANT!? Here is our skinny little man- drool and all... maybe that's why he's so skinny- he just drools all his weight away!
I love this picture! Ben and Grant love to play together. This was after church yesterday. What studs I have in my little family!!

I like your new hobby! I feel like I need to get a hobby myself. . . maybe painting, but I need to buy some paints first. Grant is growing so much. You guys sure have a cute kid, what a great smile!!!

Beautiful job on the cross stitch AND on the cute kid!

I need to dig out all my old unfinished cross stitching and pass it on.

Hey, speaking of which, I need your new address.

I've heard rumors that you might come home for Christmas. Is that true? Grandma already has two little bikes for her two little boys! Love you guys.
