Two finishes for October!

I had two finishes for this month.  We're getting close to Christmas and I've so glad I've been working on these ornaments all year.  Now I just have to make them into ornaments!

Noni's October Post

Hi there!  It is nearly the end of another month... goodness me this year is flying by!

I managed to get 2 Christmas finishes this month... 


This little Christmas Bunny was a freebie from a late 1990's/early 2000's issue of Cross Stitch Collection (I think...)

The kit came with 18ct Aida - it is stitched with one thread of DMC floss.  (In the old days if they said DMC it was most likely really DMC thread!)  I even managed to make up the card as soon as I finished the stitching (not often I do that!!)

My second finish was this rather cute Christmas sampler.

This design was published in the Just Cross Stitch Christmas 2015 issue.  The designer is From the Heart ~ NeedleArt by Wendy.  I didn't use any of the recommended threads - instead the lettering is stitched in Dinky Dyes "Pilbara", the tree foliage in Dragon Floss "Stem Green" and the trunk and star in DMC.

So that's me done for another month.

Happy Christmas Stitching
Hugs xx

September ornament

I made my two year old daughter a turtle ornament from a Mill Hill kit.   She loves turtles!  The whole time I was making it, she would point at it and say,  "My turtle."

Pudding Time!

Not a lot to show this month.... I have been stitching Christmas things but only managed to get one finished so far!

So who would like some figgy pudding?  This is a Jane Greenoff design that came as a freebie many many moons ago!  I am not actually sure what magazine it came from originally (probably Needlecraft UK) but it would have been from the late 80's or early 90's I suspect.


So that's it - quick and simple this month!

See you next month! Til then happy Christmas stitching!
Hugs xx
