Half term break is drawing to an end now. For the last week I have managed to finish off and frame my cross stitched Scandinavian Tree.
The project has been stitched on a white Quaker canvas from Zweigart using only one colour of DMC thread (321). The pattern I used comes from Cross Stitcher magazine, issue 244, Christmas 2011.
... and outdoors in the grass :) (sadly, no snow yet so the green will have to do this time)
In the meantime I've been also stitching some letters on linen. This is going to be a festive bunting with the words: LOVE CHRISTMAS on it.
So far I have stitched L O V E C H R I S T M A S
Oh, Actually I finished the "H" yesterday :P I should have really updated the photo :) I really enjoy stitching this alphabet although sometimes it can be a bit of a fiddly job.
Also, a new big project has turned up on the horizon - a cushion with a cross stitched pattern on it. A Nordic one, of course ;) Not much to show at the moment but I am working on it in the evenings :)
It's Hand-made Monday time tonight. Join in to see what other creative people have been up to :)
