Cross Stitch – Love Tree (Part 1)

On the desk is back! I’m planning on being a little more realistic this year though! With motivation in mind, I thought I’d start the year with a new cross-stitch project; this is one kit I’ve had lined up for a while, Love Tree from Bothy Threads.

On the desk...

I didn’t really get into any stitching last year, and so I do need to finish The Scarf, but I thought starting fresh with a new project would motivate me. So let me introduce you to my current project…

On The Desk – Mini Cross-Stitch Flowers

Can’t believe we’re in June! I have been trying to keep busy with cleaning and garden stuff this week; my flowers are growing, so I thought it only fitting that I work on something similar craft-wise too!

On the desk...

This year I picked up a few mini cross stitch kits. For those moments when I’m not as motivated to work on a larger project. This week has been one of those weeks…

Santoro Gorjuss The Scarf Cross-Stitch (Project)

I thought I would start with a project I have worked on before; Santoro Gorjuss The Scarf cross-stitch; but just struggled to make time to work on! Here’s hoping this new year, I have refreshed motivation!

On the desk...

This week I’ve decided to dig out a cross-stitch kit! I used to do tons of stitching, and then I got out of the habit, and it’s something I’d like to get back to again. I find it really relaxing and I’ve actually been stitching since I was 7. I’d like to complete at least one kit this year, as I have many waiting for me to even start!

So here’s what I’ve been working on this week…

Blogmas 2018 – Christmas Hoop Art *

Hoop art, is definitely more popular now than it was a few years ago, and it is a great craft for making a gift, or even decorating at Christmas, there are SO many great Christmas fabric designs which are really good fun for many projects; and it is nice to have a different use if you’re not big on sewing, as I wasn’t up til a couple of years ago!

This post contains items which I have kindly been gifted * All opinions are my own.

Christmas 10

Christmas fabric is also a great eco friendly alternative to paper for wrapping! Especially for those harder to wrap gifts!

Fat Quarter Project – Needle Wrap and More

A little over a year ago I purchased a fat quarter of really pretty Alice in Wonderland cotton fabric at a craft show. Simply because I liked the pattern and the subtle colours; though I love all things Alice, and have slight theming in the craft room! I just needed the right fat quarter project!

When I bought it, I had no idea what I was going to make with it, it was definitely one of those “just really like the print” purchases, (you know what I mean right?) and so, of course it sat in storage, not forgotten, just awaiting inspiration.

Mr Men and Little Miss Cross-Stitch

I haven’t been working on much lately, but I thought I’d share some fun Mr Men and Little Miss, cross-stitch pieces I’ve been doing for a while now!

Craft Room and Beyond, Crafts Header

I’d saved the page of whichever magazine these were printed in originally, so I can’t remember where they were from, but I had the patterns for two Mr Men and two Little Miss characters, and found them a few weeks ago, so thought I’d work on those while watching tv in the evenings!
