....and get the sewing machine out!
Me and the sewing machine don't always get along. To be honest, the sewing machine terrifies me! All those hours of cross stitching can be ruined in minutes by a misbehaving sewing machine. But the time has come to be brave and get the Santa's Snack mat finished. I just have to wash the stitching and then face my fears.
And being a true procrastinator, instead of getting on with the snack mat, I decided to start something else! A cute Christmas gnome.....
...another one of my own designs all stitched up. This one was published in The World of Cross Stitching magazine last Christmas. The little gnome was part of a larger picture and I thought he would look cute as either a small card or little gift tag. Thankfully finishing this one off requires double sided tape and no sewing machine! Phew!!!
Time to face my fears with the sewing machine.....wish me luck!
Until next time....happy stitching!
