My sis stitching?

I dunno what came over her, out of the blues, she's browsing my books, xs-books that is. Asking me to kit it up and actually finishing a piece at record breaking time. A case of too much time on her hands? I should think so.

Persian tile
Design from the book Around the World in Cross Stitch by Jan Eaton

Stitched with DMC threads on 14ct cream aida

I'm gonna finish it into a cushion cover for her. Not too soon though.

And this is my first May target achieved. It feels good to be able to strike it off my list on the side bar :D

Birdhouse
Design by Prarie Schooler (freebie)
Stitched with DMC threads on Confederate Grey Belfast, 2/2

Comment Notes: Thank you all for your comments! Cheryl & Zohrah, that's actually Christmas red, my silly camera has been acting up! I wish it was the Long Dog Mystery Sampler Vonna, but sadly it's only my miserable Sara Hathorne Sampler. You're right Margaret :)
