A little Christmas finish...





.....a free kit from this month's Cross Stitch Card Shop magazine. Cute or what?!!  I did manage to get the colours mixed up and stitched the dark purple instead of the light purple, but you'd never know if I hadn't said anything!  You'd think that by now I would be able to read a cross stitch chart correctly  ;) So I have yet another design to be made into a Christmas card....good job I've a got a while to get my  Christmas card making mojo in top gear.

Also on my to-stitch-for-Christmas list are my designs that were featured in this month's Card Shop magazine....


Cross Stitch Card Shop Issue 98
Immediate Media Co.

....I'm totally in love with the little wire hangers...aren't they adorable?  

I've also been quite busy getting odd bits done with my crochet blanket....remember the one that I made rather on the large size....here it is now....




....this is how it looks all rolled up .... and all those loose ends waiting to be stitched in...



...and now you can see just how much I have done! I think I may be almost half way there. Hopefully I'll be finished by the time the really cold weather arrives. 

Until next time...happy stitching!

Very cute finish !! Your blanket looks very beautiful:)
I generally try to follow the method of weave-in as you go. It reduces the boring work of stitching the ends.
