Christmas stuffing!

No stitching to show....only a little bit of Christmas stuffing........

Yes, I've been stuffing Christmas baubles! All my orts from this year have been stuffed into an empty Christmas bauble for the tree.  A quick back stitch label showing the year and then a few snips with the pinking sheers and...voila...this year's ort ornament...

Now onto stuffing the Christmas turkey!

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas season....whatever you celebrate, I hope it's wonderful.

Until next time...happy stitching!

A quick finish!

I just love quick finishes especially at this time of year! Here's one that was quick ...

...and rather sweet!

This was a free kit from the World of Cross Stitching magazine (issue 236) which came with a  cute die-cut card...

...and who can resist Tatty Ted?

 Now to get on with more Christmas stitching.... before the big day is here!

Until next time...happy stitching!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Or to be's the busiest time of the year!  I seem to have been busy with so many other things that there hasn't been too much time for stitching. For some reason, I haven't done very much Christmas themed stitching this year, so decided that it was about time I stitched something I started stitching one of my own designs....that's a shock. isn't it?!!!  

It doesn't look like much at the minute, but hopefully I can spend a few hours (at least!) working on it this week....will it be finished in time for Christmas? I hope so....but can't promise!!

I also manage to add a few stitched to Max the Cat, who has been sadly neglected for a while....

And also on my to-stitch list (although there is no way these will be done in time for this Christmas!) are my little Gingerbread house designs that were featured in The World of Cross Stitching magazine....

The World of Cross Stitching Issue 236
Immediate Media Co.

... they stitch up beautifully! I have been lucky enough to have quite a few stitchers share pictures their finished houses with me and they look I just have to stitch a set for myself! If I really put my mind to it, I could probably get at least one done in time for Christmas.....don't you think so?

Yes....definitely the busiest time of the year!

Until next time...happy stitching!
