This week I've been doing all sorts of crafts , so my stitching has had to take a bit of a backseat . . : ( Sadly there just isn't enough hours in the day for me right now to do everything I want to .
For example , I've been making crochet snowflakes . . .
I've painted acorns in silver and gold . . .
. . . and I have made more handmade decorations for my Xmas tree :
The one cross stitch related activity this week was that I joined the wonderful SAL Kitten Stitching and the Friday Frolics , which gives me motivation to get some stitching done every Friday at least ! So this Friday past I worked on my Christmas tree for the Christmas Ornie SAL 2015 . . .
. . . and it is now finished ! Yay ! In the original chart (designed by Maria Diaz from the free leaflet with The World of Cross Stitching issue 183) the tree trunk and the top of the tree are left empty . . .
I also started on another letter from the Crocus ABC in The World of Cross Stitching issue 212 : )
The ABC is designed by Lucie Heaton and it is a joy to stitch : ) I'm thinking I should use it to make something for myself too . since I like it so much . Maybe when all the Xmas stitching is out of the way . . : )
I have also started to stitch on a Iphone mobile case : ) This is the one that I am using right now . . .
. . . but I want to stitch myself a Christmas-themed case too ! A Christmas Fanatic like me certainly needs a proper Christmas case !
I don't have a chart for this cover so I'm going to try to 'design'/put together something that I like . I have started off with this Christmas Tree from an old leaflet of Xmas designs from Cross Stitch Crazy magazine and then we'll see . . : )
I must try to get some stitching done on my Christmas gift projects this week - I have really missed my stitching ! The days and the weeks are starting to go by really fast now and there is sooo much I want to stitch before Xmas !
How is your Xmas stitching going ?
Happy Stitching Everyone !
