I subscribe to a cross stitch magazine called 'Cross Country Stitching'. I used to do a lot of cross stitch but slowly gravitated to patchwork and other stitching. I still get the magazine though and love to look at all the designs. Sometimes I make them but I find time seems to be against me now. I received my latest magazine on Friday and it's full of beautiful Christmas designs including these beautiful little decorations stitched on 28ct linen:
I think I might be able to find time to stitch them. I could even put them into a wall hanging or table runner.
Santa Wears Red Pyjamas...
I was feeling a bit Christmassy so I looked for other stitcheries to do and re-discovered this one from Leanne Beasley called Santa Wears Red Pyjamas.
Isn't it cute? I love the Christmas tree one as well. Both of them would be nice and quick to make.
Don't you just love Christmas? I love the decorations, food, tree, presents, food, music. When we lived in Jakarta, Christmas isn't such a big thing and we really missed all the celebrations. You know that annoying piped music played in shopping centres? Those annoying Christmas songs? Well it's quite amazing but I think I would have done anything to hear one corny Christmas song played in a shopping centre. It's amazing what you miss.
Don't forget to put your name in for the giveaway. Robin will draw out the winner tonight.
Until next time
P.S. I'm feeling way better today. The antibiotics have kicked in and my throat is not nearly as sore as it was. Thank you so much for all your good wishes.
