Slow Sunday Stitching

I've been working on some more Christmas stitcheries to complete and sell at the craft shoppe.

My thought is to border them with a seasonal fabric and add a ribbon hanger.  These are small, only a few inches high, so they could hang on a tree or in a small spot for a bit of holiday cheer.  The snowman doesn't look like much yet but once all filled in and outlined in black like the gingerbread man, he'll be adorable.


As a birthday gift from my husband I ordered this pincushion and scissor weight kit.  Poinsettias and pomegranates are two of my favorite motifs.  I also ordered the linen to stitch upon.  But before I do that, some secret hand stitching projects need completion.  More about that later!

Very cute! I haven't done any cross stitching since I started quilting, seeing your projects is a little nostalgic.

Annie sometimes there is nothing better than sitting down with a little stitchery. They are so achieveable and I love the pomegranates too cute for words :-) have fun.

Such cute little designs. Who wouldn't want one of those to brighten their holiday?
I often pick out what DH is going to give me, too. : ) You chose a beautiful little pattern--very classic looking.

Those are so cute! I actually think I have some like that hanging around.... Hmmm Maybe I do need to go through the craft closet and see what is really in there.

The cross stitch is adorable. That gingerbread man turned out beautifully so I'm sure Mr. Snowman will too.
