Happy dance !


Here is a little look at the cross stitch I've been doing. I used do a bit of cross stitching years ago and recently felt an urge to have another bash at it. I posted a picture of the quilt lady a while back and that's what got me started again. I have even bought some cross stitch magazines to flick through. One design caught my eye and I had to do it. I even knew who I was making it for. Here it is all finished and it now belongs to the lovely Karol-Ann.


This had her name written all over it and I'm so glad she likes it. I have actually started a new BIG cross stitch picture and although I have done a fair few hours on it there is not an awful lot to show yet. Anyone who does this work knows it is slow - but I am really enjoying it.


I have not abandoned my quilting - fear not. In fact I have a finish to show - just need to take photos.


Too hot here at the moment - I SO dislike Summer. I have been working away at lots of bits and bobs in front of my best new buy - a lovely big desk fan - lol !


See you soon xx

Oh Andrea this is so totally neat! Everything you create is just beaming and distinctive. The fabric you used to frame this with accentuated it perfectly.
