2 New starts!

Yes 2 new starts. I try to resist I really do but I just couldn't hold out until Harvest Light was done.
*  7-6-2016 A FINISH , Yes #13 finish so far, Now to decide which lace to use, decisions , decisions hmmmm. A or B? I'll decide later and post it to my Finish Page here - Christie's Cross Stitch Finishes




 *7-4-2016 Happy Fourth of July my dear friends. I hope everyone enjoyed their celebrations :). Done a little stitching on the Sweetheart Rose but no progress pic. Instead I made a collage from  when I started it to the present day. Happy Stitching! ~ C's Cross Stitch Creations ~ aka East Coast Stitcher




*  6-30-2016 No updates last night due to storms and spending the evening & night with my 9 year old fur baby. I knew she would pass soon as she was old and slowing down. She sadly passed away this morning before I went to work. I did finish Independence Day before spending my last evening with my furbaby so here is the pic. I'll be finishing  this - this evening trying to keep from bawling like a baby. It helps me cope with loss. I'll post how I finished it on my other page Christie's Cross Stitch Finishes







*6- 28-2016 Update. I did work a little on the Sweetheart Rose. But I think I am going to finish up Independence day. Only 3 more letters and 1 star. Maybe, possibly by the end of the week finish.  x fingers crossed x .                                            Sweetheart Rose -progress as of  6-27-1026
                                           Independence Day - progress as of 6-28-2016

* 6-24-2016 Update. Worked on Independence Day again tonight, got a little more stitching done. I may continue to work on this for another 2 days, just not sure yet. The Sweetheart Rose is staring at me from my left, I keep cutting my eyes at it saying " Yea Yea I know , I need to work on ya" . ~ C's Cross Stitch Creations ~ aka East Coast Stitcher




* 6-23-2016 Update. Worked on Independence Day this time. (scroll down to see start). I have 9 letters and 1 and a half stars left to stitch on this one. Received some beautiful fabric from Kim of Wisdom with Needle and Thread
in a RAK from her that will be perfect for finishing this.

 I have an idea with this first new start. It's called Sweetheart Roses . Stitching on 14 count aida using DMC threads.
I found it here Sweetheart Roses. They have a few lovely designs. All it takes is a signup with your email.
