Ta dah! My winter sampler on the navy background has been finished! Pleased with the overall effect and now on the lookout for a nice frame :) This is what it looks like when taken off the stitching frame (not washed or ironed yet).
No time to waste! In the meantime I started another Nordic project (suprise! suprise!) :P This is going to be a personalised Nordic stocking with my name. My first project on the red aida too.
Loved stitching the little hearts as much as the mittens. Each element of a sampler is a separate bit of fun to stitch. There is symmetry and regularity here. You just go line after line adding little elements to your project and it's convenient to stop between the lines. This is a great thing I love about cross stitch samplers. Easy and pleasant to make, yet charming :)
Also been working on my next woolly balls. Currently knitting my 47th / 55 :) Not far to go! Almost there!
The news of this week for me is this:
Thanks to my friend, Grażyna (dzięki!!) , I've been introduced to a lady running this lovely Christmas shop and this year my glass painted pieces will be sold there for the first time. What a fab start to the coming Christmas season! This shop opens only once a year but this year it will be selling for two days due to its growing popularity. If you live in the area of Pen-y-Lan / Wrexham, do pop in for your Christmas shopping. There will be plenty of beautiful hand-made crafts to buy as presents. I'm very excited to go there!
Time for Hand-made Monday. Joining a bunch of talented crafters. Head over and see what they have been up to.
Now, gotta go and get ready for work. Will be visiting your blogs in the afternoon, when I'm back :) Have a good day, everyone! x x
