Mega Mini Month Madness number 3

Another cute little design to show you for this week's mini  finish. This time it's a Margaret Sherry design that was a free chart from Cross Stitch Crazy a few years ago.....


Awww...aren't they cute! I stitched these adorable little polar bear cubs on pale blue aida which you can see slightly better on this next picture....


I didn't follow the chart exactly and also altered the sky to half cross stitch.....much quicker to do and since the background is already the blue fabric, I thought it worked rather well.


I'm not sure that the eyes stand out enough so I may go back and either add another stitch to make them a bit more obvious, or  do the eyes in a shade darker. 

So....I'm giving myself a little pat-on-the-back for another mini finish completed for the challenge. The next design for the challenge is already started, but there's not enough to show....yet!

Finally, here's a picture of one of my Christmas designs that featured in this month's Cross Stitch Gold magazine....



Cross Stitch Gold Issue 115
Immediate Media Co.

The model was stitched by the lovely Caroline Lord, who, like me, ended up singing Christmas carols in the middle of summer all because of this design! :)

Until next time...happy stitching!

What software do you use for creating charts from your drawings ? Not sure, if I have asked this earlier.
