Festive Make...

Hi Everyone,

Ive not been in blogland for months so thought I would pop on and have a wee catch up. 

Ive been doing something a bit different for my folks festive card this year.  I went right back to before colouring in all the time and decided to complete this super wee cross stitch card. 

I havent cross stitched for a long time so it was lovely to get back into it. I couldn't do it for so long with my carpal tunnel syndrome but it thankfully seems to have gone away. I can also see the chart with my glasses on so that really helps!! LOL.

This is a kit I bought years back and never got round to sitting and making it up.  So pleased I have and Im now onto the next festive cross stitch make for Jake to give to his g/f.  

The card kit is a Nutmeg one called Starry Night.  

Thanks for dropping by today. 

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

Hi Hazel this is a stunning card. It must have taken you ages to complete the beautiful cross stitch. I am sure it will be appreciate and displayed with pride. Take care. Hugs Jackie

I am always in awe of people who can do cross stitch. This is amazing, so much detail in such a small place.
