Cross Stitch Sampler

Many of you probably do not know that I also have a passion for cross stitching and the bug has bitten again!
During my vacation I took a day trip and visited a couple stitchery shops. I was looking for a few small projects to do and wouldnt you know a very large "Sampler" caught my eye and I had to have it. The only problem is that I had forgotten just how bad the ole eyes are and trying to see the 34 count linen is almost impossible!
So after a new magnifier with a light and a larger count linen (28Ct),I am stitching away!!!
Another great find was the little scissors you see in the pic and an adorable thread separator that I had never seen before. I purchased this sweet little tin full of pins at our "Quilters Lawn Sale" and the pincushion is one that I made and use a lot.

Happy Stitching,

Wooly Pumpkin Pillow

How fun this pillow was to make. The pattern is from the new Fall isssue of " Primitive Quilts and Projects. We have the magazine at the shop and also kits available for the pumpkin pillow project. I just love this new magazine that was created for the more primitive quilters and it fits in perfect at the Quilted Crow.
Have you seen this magazine? Your comments are welcome!!!
