Mostly about cross stitching, and a little bit about me too
Tuesday, 22 July 2008
This weekend was the weekend of Leena’s and my little Christmas ornament SAL, and this weekend I chose to stitch a small freebie from Drawn Thread ‘Tree Keeper’ (yes, it’s meant to be a scissor fob rather than an ornament) which you can find here. It’s a teensy little design (particularly as I stitched it on 40ct linen), and didn’t’ take me long. I started a second ornament, but ran out of time and didn’t manage to finish it as H and I were glued to the telly watching Padraig Harrington see off all challengers in the very exciting Open Championship – H as you can imagine was jumping up and down and fist-pumping through much of the back 9. So I plan to finish the second ornament for next month’s mini-SAL and will post a photo then. In the meantime, here is the titchy Tree Keeper (sorry the photo isn't brilliant):
