Finished…..just in time for Christmas!


Yayyyy…my little cardinal decoration is all stitched up and finished as a wall hanging just in time for Christmas….




Isn’t it adorable? I love the heart hanger and those little bells are just too cute!

Kit details-
Mini banners by Dimensions
Stitched on 14 count aida
Finished size approx. 13cm x 25cm

I searched on-line for some more designs in this mini banners series, but unfortunately couldn’t find any. I did manage to find some other wonderful designs that I would love to stitch. Guess it’s too late to ask Santa for them….so...... I’ll just have to treat myself!!! Heehee!

Hope you all have a wonderful festive season.

Until next time…happy stitching!

I love it! It is gorgeous and dead on time. Were all the finishing materials included in the kit?

I found the following on ebay:

Merry Christmas!
