The Last Post - 2012

Some updates on this here last day of 2012.

First up is my Christmas Past cross stitch.  As you can see I didn't get it completed for Christmas but I'm still enjoying stitching it in the evenings so it'll remain an ongoing project.

Next up is my Tula Pink sampler.  I'm up to block six out of twelve.  This one made my head hurt a bit trying to get the foundations the right way around & I had a couple of hiccups along the way but look.... it turned out fine in the end :)

Last up is a picture of three Christmas gifts that I received this year.  They're nice new dies for my Accuquilt Go! Cutter.  I have lots of projects lined up for them so keep an eye out in the new year to see what I come up with.

I'm looking forward to my crafting in 2013 already, I hope you'll stop by every so often to see what I've been up to.

I wish you all a very happy, healthy & prosperous 2013.

Happy Stitching :)

Happy Christmas

I had lots to post about in the run up to Christmas but unfortunately the Flu virus struck our house & pretty much changed all of our plans.  After spending several days in bed & shipping the twins off to Grandmas over night I would say that I'm feeling about 85% now.  Not quite 100% but getting there.

I leave you with a photo of my completed fabric door wreath & wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

Cross Stitching Mojo

Well it appears that finishing the Cinderella cross stitch for a friend has really got me back into cross stitching in the evenings :)

I've started a nice new Christmas design from Hinzeit called Charmed Christmas Past.  I've had this chart all kitted up in my stash for *ahem* a while!!!  I'm stitching for 1-2 hours an evenings once the children are in bed.  So here's my progress so far:

It would be nice to have it completed in time for Christmas but I'm not concerned if it isn't, I'm just enjoying the stitching.

Just in case you are wondering about this weeks Silent Sunday post, both of the twins were poorly over the weekend & we were going through liquid Nurofen like it was going out of fashion.  Thankfully one of them is back to normal with just a cough but the other has developed tonsilitis so has been off school.

Happy stitching :)
