Cross stitch

Before I came to live with my mom, she used to make lots of cross stitch works. 4 months ago my auntie Rosa asked her to make one for a new baby in the family. My mom said yes, but she did not say when! Well, looks like this is the time. She took out of the closet all the materials and she is decided to start it now! I will show it to you when it is finished, ok?
What can I do while she works on that?


Have a good night

That is exactly what I would be doing too.

My Mommy likes Precious Moments cross stitch works too!
Do show us what it looks like when done.
You can help to pick colors while Mommy is doing her work?

Hi Lorenza,
A few years ago, my mom tried doing a piece of 'Precious Moment' cross stitch too (it has the boy and the girl playing on a see-saw).. until today, it's still half done.. Hehehe..

PeeS: You have such a pretty red coat!

Mom used to cross stitch a looooong time ago and found it very soothing. That is gonna be a great present for the baby!


Girasol said...

Good evening lorenza.
The cross-stitch is an art.
Very, time hangs, and the remarkable piece of work is made.
It sleeps so, and the cross-stitch based on the photograph of lozenza.
I think it is lovely. :)

Hey there Lorenza!
Nice choice!!
And guess what? Our mommy used to do cross stitch as well, but she rarely gets to do it anymore because she's always busy with work and the children and cleaning the house, and so on...
Have a great day!
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

Our mom used to do cross stich in her "before dachsie" life. We take up all of her time now. We were wondering when your mom was going to find time. Too bad it will take fro her time with you but it is only for a little while and for a very good reason. At least you can sleep next to her.

Amber said...

Hey Lorenza, your mom make lovely cross stitch. have a nice sleep!

Amber :)

Amber-Mae said...

I am very interested to see once it's done! Why won't she cross stitch you too? I bet she will do a good job...

Love licks,

Hi Lorenza!

I think you have the best part of the bargain. My Jeannie said she did cross stitch "once" - it gave her a headache....

The design is very pretty. We are looking forward to seeing it when its finished.

love and licks, Marvin xxxxx

Spencer said...

Looks like that could take a long time so you'll get lots of rest Lorenza!


Moco said...

It will be a beautiful gift for the baby. Cross stitch is very beautiful. Grammie likes to collect it. She usually buys it done when she goes on her trips to Goodwill. It is amazing to her that so much work is put into it and she can buy it so cheap. She says that she would probably kill someone if she had to do it herself.

Tofu Burger said...

Hi Lorenza, I would be napping too :) Your mom's threads look soooo pretty!


Zorra said...

You should watch your mom and make sure she is doing it right. Sometimes, my mommy's eyes cross when working on things like that. BOL!!

Petra said...

Your mom is lucky that you sleep while she works. I'd be chasing that thread all over the place!

This will be beautiful when it's done; I can't wait to see it!

Lady Kaos said...

Lorenza! My mom cross stitches all the time and that's exactly what I do. I bringher a ball and drop it in her lap and she'll throw it a few times until she pokes her self and then I curl up beside her and make sure she doesn't loose her scissors...again. I need to post some of my mom's stuff.

Isis said...

i think my mom should work on things like that too!

Gus and Louie said...

See all the great nappy time you get while mom does her cross-stitch!!

The Daily Echo said...

Sleep! That sounds like a great plan to me! You can supervise Mom better that way too.

4xBs said...

hi Lorenza, it sounds like you have a good plan of what to do while your mom is doing her cross-stich project. snoozing is always a good option!


Two Wild and Crazy Guyz said...

Our mom used to do a bunch of that cross stitch stuff too. She says she can't see well enough to do it anymore. Naps are always a good thing!

Willie & Waylon said...

Hi Lorenza:

Your mom is so talented! Our mom used to do that but she never seems to be able to finish a project anymore!
We would sleep too!

The Brat Pack said...

If our Mom was doing that we'd get no sleep...there would be too much yelling and cussing. She's not too crafty. :)


Ume said...

hmmm... i think it doesn't hurt to erm... check on the threads. but u looked so sweet snoozing away in your jammies...

Hana said...

My Mom once bought a cross stitch kit. The next day, she returned it at the store!

Joe Stains said...

what a great job she does, my Mom could never do that!

Comet and BLU said...

We would be sleeping too. They look pretty when they are finished, but so boring to watch the people make them.

Patience-please said...

Good night, Lorenza!

Jackson said...

Hey Lorenza,
Cool, your Mama does cross-stitch too?? Mama used to do quite a bit of it until she got into quilting more. The precious moments always have such cute little things to make. Tell her to have fun making the items. Have a great weekend!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
