I managed to get a bunch of stitching yesterday, and since it was Christmas theme day, I worked on some card motifs.
This one was fun – I embellished a bit with sparklies and whisper thread. This came from Donna Kooler’s 555 Fabulous Cross-Stitch Patterns.
This came from Sue Cook’s Wonderful Cross Stitch Collection.
This one came from The Cross Stitcher Magazine, December 2000. I really didn’t like the colours called for, so I think only one is the actual colour. The rest are from my own choosing. Next week I will try and do 3 more motifs from this magazine. This is the only issue from this magazine that I actually plan on stitching more than one design. I never really liked it, but this issue has potential!
It was difficult finding motifs the correct size in all the magazines and books I have. I will have to get some online freebies, I guess.
Tonight is Gifts by the Sea. I don’t think I will get a lot done as I have a guiding meeting tonight, but hopefully I will get an hour or two in.
