So what? So what it's summer now and still a few months to go to Christmas and I'm already stitching away my Christmas cards? Hot or not, I feel like making my Christmas cards right here and right now! :) And it doesn't bother me at all! :) This year I decided to be well-prepared for my Christmas, well ahead of time :) and started my cross stitch projects as early as possible. You know...a stitch in time... and everything will be ready for you to enjoy this lovely festive season :)
Recently I've been fostering my growing interest in Scandinavian crafts by stitching some sampler-style Nordic greeting cards. And here is the whole series of 6:
the cards in 3s:
and altogether :)
I really enjoyed stitching and mounting them. Simple, symmetrical, easy to stitch, folky look and festive mood. Voile! The charts come from Cross Stitch Card Shop magazine, issue 74, Oct/Nov, 2010.
I'm planning Scandinavian theme for my Christmas this year so more designs of this type are to come soon!
Let's not forget that it is also a Hand-made Monday time. The 30th edition of this linking blog fun. Check out Wendy's place to see some lovely crafty stuff :) or simply join in!
Due to my travel to Scotland last week, I've got some hand-made Monday posts to catch up with so I better be off now!
To whoever comes here : take care and thank you for your kind words :-)
