During those in-between days I love so much at this time of year, I reverted to an old favourite craft of mine, cross stitch. I learned to do this craft while at primary school, and whenever I have any decent amount of time I always go back to it. You may remember my post from last year where I stitched up two cross stitch hearts supplied as free kits with a magazine. I really enjoyed doing these little projects, and they have hung from what I lovingly call my "twiggy vase" all year. So I got to thinking...wonder what freebies that magazine will do for this Christmas and, guess what??? Another heart kit!!!!! So I bought the magazine in early December, and hid it away until the holidays. My fingers were itching to get on with them, but I remained patient until December 27th. Would you like to see the results? Here we go then...
Each one depicts a snowflake, with each one being slightly different in colour or design:
and here are all three together:
I absolutely loved sewing these, they will join the two from last year, hanging from the twiggy vase.
Although the festivities are now sadly over for another year, DH and I don't have to return to work until next Monday, we are really fortunate. So still a few more days of being at home with the family. We really appreciate these times as when back at work/school/college/uni it is really hectic around here.
Hoping all is well with you and yours!
