My kitchen

This is my lame attempt at decorating. I have always wanted a blue and yellow kitchen. Don't ask why, I just always have. I finally can kind of sort of decorate my kitchen. What you see below is what I've done so far. And there really isn't much actual wall room, so this just might have to be it.

This little thing is something that I made for my Grandma Belliston when I was about 8 or 10. My mom sewed the little ruffle thing around it, and voila. When my Grandma passed away, I asked for this back. Can you tell I didn't use a pattern? I thought it was cute, so I hung it up in my kitchen. And it reminds me of my Grandma. (note: the yellow blob next to the house is a sun. just so you know)
This is actually a washcloth that my sister crocheted for me. It is way too pretty to actually use, so I hung it on my wall.
This is my very first cross stitch that I did from start to finish (well, not all the way. I was supposed to do this dumb cording thing on the side. Yeah, right.) I've had it done for about five years now and never framed it or anything. So, I got an open backed frame, bought a really cheap frame for the glass to fit. I had some cardboard to stretch it on (well not really that either. I just taped it) and bought some of those claw like things to nail into the back of the frame to hang. I love it.
So, that is my kitchen. You've already seen my pottery that matches it. I love my pottery. I must go back so I can find some more.
This is my latest cross stitch project. I got the pattern off of Ebay. It is a pattern from Russia and I loved it when I saw it. I started this sometime back in August I think, and I just finished it last night. It is pretty big, about 11 x 14 or so. It looks so cool!! As I was doing it, I didn't ever really look at it as a whole, just at the little parts in my little circle. I cannot wait to be able to frame this!!! But that probably won't happen until April or something.

This is about as creative as I get. I'm working on putting stuff on the walls of our house. But it is slow going. I don't get to paint, so I just have a bunch of white walls that say nothing to me. But I've been thinking. When I've finished I'll post more pictures.

Terina! This looks awesome. I've never actually done count-cross stitch (whatever you call it). The water and sky is very cool. Good job.
