My partner and I take it in turns to watch the baby, so every second day I get to stitch. Today is my day to watch him, so I stole a minute to blog.

 I am going to start the Belle and Boo series from the UK Cross-Stitcher magazines. Probably the following one first.

I finished two cross stitched Christmas pieces,

 a robin kit I bought from eBay, which was originally free with (again!) Cross-Stitcher magazine,

as well as Mill Hill's Santa Stamp.
I thought about doing a big cross stitch kit, but got put off due to the fact I might never finish it or worse, might frog it.
I found a bookmark kit in a charity shop, for £1.50, these type of things usually cost from £5 up (not including shipping so say another £1.50 + for that)
Here is a picture of that:

Please share what you have been stitching. I would love to see other people's work :)

Until next time,
Bye bye :)

Firstly, thanks for sticking with me, I realise I haven't updated in a while, life got in the way. I will try to keep my personal life separate from my blog though :)
I will highlight a small selection of stitches I have done since I last posted.

I have stitched the above design about four times, I love it. IT is a free kit that came with a UK magazine called world of cross stitching, I end up rebuying them on ebay.
I have done loads of mill hill ornaments. I have also done many cards and ornaments
I have been doing the series of these. This is the "Pumpkin and white" the rest are called "XX + white" I plan to make them into a cushion of some sort.

THANKS FOR READING! I plan to update more regularly.

My first post :)

Hello everyone :)

I thought I would finally join the ranks of blogging crafters and so decided to make a blog.
I am currently working between two projects at the moment, a Will and Kate wedding sampler from cross stitcher magazine, (Had my mind on doing it for ages...I decided...better late than never)
as well as "home is where the heart is" from which I won in a competition in July ( I couldn't believe it....I never win anything :o )

I will go for now, but thank you for reading, ciao until next time :)
