Before I knew it...

We passed January 15th and I didn't post all the new stuff I have made.

This is my favourite football team! The St. Louis Rams. I wanted to make it with Superbowl coming up. I got the amazing pattern here
She made a bunch of football teams so I still have to make my dad's.
This one was a real pain to do. It was my first experience with KG-Chart for Cross Stitching. The layout was hard to do as it didn't break down the pattern into 29x29 sections for pegboards like I am used to.

This is some pixelated versions of Casablanca characters that I got from Iotacons
I asked him if he was okay with me making the patterns and he was nice enough to mention my stuff on his site :)

This is a birthday of my sister that I gave to my dad for Christmas. I figured since he had a picture of me as a baby that he needed one of my sister.

These are the things I have done over the last little while. Not too much work. Still looking for new things to make all the time.
Welcome to 2011!


Happy Birthday Nana

Today is Elvis Presley's birthday, which is always how I remember it's my grandmother. Every year on tv, the news would talk about his birthday so we would remember to call her because they shared their birthday.
This year I want to do a special post dedicated to her. A year and a half ago, she lost her battle with lung cancer. I miss her a lot.

When I was in elementary school, we had to write a paper about who our hero was. Most kids chose sport people, musicians and things like that. I chose my grandmother. She was a very special woman. I can't remember a time where she wasn't in a wheelchair. I can't remember a time she wasn't smiling. My grandmother had some major problems in her life that required surgeries and a lot of immobility, even in her hands. That never stopped her. She was always smiling and laughing when we were there. Joking around like every other person. She always had visitors at the house and she loved them all. Her loved to play cards. It was something my grandparents and parents did every time she was there. She even had a wooden block designed for her to put her cards in.
So for my mom's christmas present this year, I made her a very special piece. It is a picture of my grandmother at an Air show. My grandmother had a great day there and my mom just loves that picture.

Now here is what I made for my mom.

My mom opened it Christmas eve and cried. She loves it. It now hangs above the tv.

I wanted this post to be special because my grandmother was a very special woman and I love her very much.
Happy Birthday Nana. Rest in Peace and have some fun today
Love Jen
