Hello world :)
Looks like my cross stitching mojo is back, at least for a while. Bored a bit with long months of knitting, I decided not to waste any time and grabbed a couple of little cross stitch projects. They were the stitched motifs for the cards. Supa cute and fun to stitch.
The Japanese kokeshi doll - I'm sentimental about them. My very first cross stitch I took in my hands was just one of these (click here to see it, it was one of those pre-blog times :)). It got me hooked on cross stitching which previously I used to think was boring and patience testing. This one is so sweet - I really enjoyed stitching this little Japanese lady. The extra sewn-on ribbon is an extra cuteness factor, I think :) The project was an add-on to one of the recent issues of Cross Stitcher.
My other choice was a set of two cross stitched cards with the well-known characters designed by Margaret Sherry :) The cat is so sweet but the back stitching the outlines was a bit of a nightmare LOL Eventually I at some point I gave up following the chart and ended up stitching it my way :)))
The mice in a jacuzzi cup were a bit easier to stitch :) Phew!
Currently working on my UFOs - a series of Easter cross stitched cards. Not even half way through yet but getting there... :)))
Well, no more news for today. Thanks for any comments you leave on my blog. Much appreciated and pleasure to read.
