What is it with me and Christmas cross stitches? I have so many to hang on my walls each year already.
I purchased three more projects at the Darling Harbour Quilt show in 2013. I have completed one, its even framed. See....

So when it was time to start something new, I didn't go with a pattern in stock, rather one on loan from a friend. I worked on this during Friday Night Sew In last night.

Progress has been a bit slow due to the fact that I have stitched two rows of words in green instead of blue.....twice. I love sewing, but reverse sewing is the pits. I felt like such an idiot the second time.
Hope you are enjoying the weather, wherever you are.
It's Spring here, and the days are just beautiful!


  1. Beautiful work on your cross stitches. So annoying about the reverse sewing.....maybe it's a sign you need school holidays!
