Home Schooling and Counted Cross Stitching


I used to love to cross stitch. I haven't done it in years, not since my children were young. Melissa in NZ and Nin are inspiring me to get busy and do some sewing again. I used to sew my daughters and my dresses, all matching of course! That was back in the day. I cross stitched this little Precious Moments boy and girl when I was pregnant with my first child.

I loved these blocks and wooden toys and books as much as my children did.

The Complete Tales of Beatrice Potter, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, the Little House on the Prairie, and Little Visits with God. We had so many good books. I used Ramalda Spaulding's Writing Road to Reading and Saxon Math and Cuisinart rods and Christian Liberty Academy History and Language. And so much more...

These were good times.

Good times make great memories. I do not have the patience for cross stitch. It just makes me cross!

I love your stitching! It's beautiful ...
And those are such lovely bright toys :-)
I must say we are enjoying our children's toys with them, and especially their books. It's like having one's childhood over again, in a way!

It's hard to beat to those classic, wooden toys.

I used to have that Little Visits With God book! My mom probably still has it. My kids now use a newer paperback version.

LOVE your cross stitching. I have a slight addiction to cross stitching. :)
