Cross Stitch Love


   I love my crochet and I really enjoy all my projects but when I saw this "Merry Christmas" cross stitch sampler by Little Dove Designs it encouraged me to pick up my cross stitch needles and threads again.

I bought the design from Faye at Little Dove Designs and it was very promptly delivered.

So I spent an evening in front of the TV sorting through my boxes of threads to get the colours needed so I could get started.

I have made a start and I am finding this a lovely straightforward pattern to follow.

I am feeling a little nostalgic as I sew this as cross stitch was one of the first crafts I learned to do.  I remember my Mum teaching me when I was a teenager.  I think it was something she gave me to do when I was off school for a long time when I had chicken pox.  It was the start of an addiction from then on with crafts and I have dabbled in all sorts of crafts over the years.

I will let you know my progress

Bye for now

  1. When I first saw the photo at the top I thought you had completed it, did wonder how you had managed to get it done so quick. Will be lovely when complete, only 7 months til Xmas so better get stitching. Think we have tried most crafts over the years. xxx
