My cross stitch projects are usually big ones -- although I've discovered that "big" is in the eye of the beholder! I love designs by Marty Bell, Thomas Kinkade, Linda Meyers, Graphs by Barbara and Cheryl... it's a huge and ever-expanding list.

Right now, I'm working on The Garden Wall by Graphs by Barbara and Cheryl, Stonehearth Hutch by Thomas Kinkade, and Sanctuary by Marty Bell. I've also been stitching the ornaments in Prairie Schooler's Starry Night leaflet, but I expect to have the last one finished this afternoon.

I'm a very new knitter and just finished my first pair of socks this week. They've got toes and heels (sort of) and a hole to put your foot in, but that's about all of their redeeming qualities -- except for the fact that they are socks and I actually made them! :-) I do still like the color, and they are warm, so it wasn't a total waste of effort, but I wish they'd come out looking a little more like "real" socks. Next project to go on the needles will be the needlework bag from Frugal Knitting Haus If I don't change my mind and start something else first!
