Anyway, I thought that I'd share a bit of cross stitch with you for a change today.
This little decoration was made with some gold-flecked aida fabric and odds and ends of green embroidery threads, and then some different coloured beads threaded and stitched across for the garlands. The pattern came from an old American cross stitch magazine. There are some fabulous American stitching patterns and magazines, but some are hard to find in the UK. However, I managed to pick up a couple from a second-hand book shop a while ago, and one of them had some fantastic Christmas decorations and patterns in - which is where this came from! I've made several decorations from them which will probably be appearing on here over the coming weeks! I must confess that I love to decorate our home up at Christmas and probably go a bit OTT with white lights (I don't like coloured ones lol!), candles and cross stitched bits and pieces!
So hope you like it!
But just before I go I'd just like to wish my eldest step-daughter Charlotte a very happy birthday today!
This is our three gorgeous girls - and Charlotte is at the front!
Back soon, Kim x
