Silhouette Goat and Bean Pots...

  1. I got inspired by three silhouette animals I saw on pinterest, one of which was a goat. But instead of doing it out of paper or even paint, I thought I would try it with cross stitch. So while I watch tv in the evening I have been working on my little billy goat. I drew the pattern myself from the inspiration picture and when I get him done, I may add a cow and sheep for him. I hope to find some oval frames to finish off the trio. BTW, I forgot how long cross stitch takes.
And here is pic of my bean pot collection, I moved them from the fireplace mantel into the front foyer.
Have a beautiful day,

Tiff(ps, I have no idea why that #1 is there, it wouldn't let me take it out in the editing either, strange)


  1. Wow, that is really neat! How do you like that type of frame for cross stitch? I have yet to really master this, but I keep trying. It is very confusing to me anyhow. I like all your bean pots, I have a few, I have found mine all second hand. Did you get the swap that I sent you? I never heard from you, even on your e-mail.
    Have a good day.

  2. I have a couple of bean pots myself. I love your display. It's beautiful. Your stitchery is going to be beautiful. -Steph-

  3. A cross-stitched silhouette is an awesome idea! I think I'll have to add that to my 'to-craft' list and make one up with my dog Shadow's silhouette! (LOL--A shadow of Shadow!) He's a chihuahua, so that will make a cool picture.
