And thankfully the building work on the bathroom is now finished - and it looks wonderful! It's fantastic to have a shower with a good strong flow and a toilet that flushes properly first time! It's quite sad really how excited a middle aged woman can get over bathroom fittings.....
Anyway, just thought I'd share a bit of cross stitch with you today. I've been busy making a last few Christmas cards as well, and will try and get some decent photos today if the light is a bit better.
This little hanger was made with a chart from Lizzie Kate. I stitched it onto gold-flecked aida fabric and added a few gold beads. I just liked the simplicity of this one, and the 'rustic' charm (although most of my cross stitch offerings have a touch of the 'rustic' about them - probably to do with dog & cat hairs!).
And this little hanger was from a pattern in an old American cross stitch magazine
I stitched this onto ivory aida - and again, can't resist adding some beads! I was a bit disappointed though, as it's supposed to be a heart shape, but due to my dodgy stitching up and stuffing technique, it's looking like a bit of a wonky heart! Sigh.
Anyway, I'll be back soon with yet more Christmas cards - and much as I love Christmas, it'll be quite nice when I've finished these not to have to make any more for a while!
Enjoy the rest of your day,
I'm entering these hangers into the following challenges:-
