Goal completed for the weekend.

No picture tonight, but after a week and a half of dealing with hubby's broken leg and the extra chores that come along with it, I finally got some time to sit down and cross stitch some more. Didn't get much done, unfortunately, but progress is progress, even if it's only 62 stitches.

Progress...even if a little.

Made a little bit of progress on my pillow. Not a huge amount, but it's better than nothing...

Goal achieved!

I went into the weekend telling myself that I was going to at least get ONE set of potholders done. Well, here they are. Hope my sister likes them!

Another button flower...

So I've been playing around with some more button flowers, and found an alternative way to do them via YouTube -

As you can see, this one only allowed for four petals, so I'll have to go back and rewatch the video. I did however play around with the chains and the same stitch, and made the petals larger than the original made. I'm liking the results so far - I think I'll play around with this a bit more!

Button flowers!

This is a new project that I found on Facebook. Its a great way to re-purposed buttons as well as use up some extra crochet thread.

The original post is located here:

It's in Spanish, but there is a link to a tutorial at the bottom of the photos in the tutorial.

They're a little rough, but I'm happy-ish with them. Practice makes perfect after all.
