I apologise for not posting in a while but things have been busy with work; so as a result all computer time was work time 😦
I have completed a Christmas cross stitch (which I started last year but then put it down for several months).
It’s a beautiful design by Lucie Heaton and is available to download from her website. Lucie writes for a couple of cross stitch magazines in the UK and I thought I’d pay her site a visit to see what designs were available and it was here I saw the Furry Tales Night Before Christmas cross stitch. I thought it was so cute and something my girls would love. I decided to stitch the design on 16 count Aida as I wanted the background to be less noticeable (and thought this was not a project for evenweave!)
I picked up the cross stitch again in October and was determined to finish it for THIS Christmas.
So last week when the girls went to bed I worked hard and finished off the backstitch wording in one go.
Below is a photo of the finished cross stitch. It still needs ironed and framed but I couldn’t wait to take a picture to show my friends.
Now we’re into December I wanted to do some Christmas craft with my eldest daughter. My friend Jo-Anne had sent me some inspirational craft pictures and I thought….I could do some of that!.
After a little visit to Ebay I received delivery of the following items.
- Christmas button tree.
Why don’t you have a go, it’s fun and easy enough for a 4 year old to do (with supervision) 🙂
