"Waiting for Santa" and "Ice Skating Penguin"

Hi Everyone

I've just finished stitching Margaret Sherry's new freebie "Waiting for Santa".  I just love her cat designs.  He's just so cute, I had to stitch him straight away.  Fortunately, I had all but one of the Anchor colours, but I found a similar colour to replace it.

"Waiting for Santa"

Just click on  Margaret Sherry Kits

I've also stitched an Ice Skating Penguin from "Enjoy Cross Stitch at Christmas!"  Issue no. 1, which came out in 2008.  This magazine supplied all the threads and aida fabric.  I used the threads provided and hated them.  I also used three strands instead of two, so that it covered the fabric better.  I love the designs but not the threads.

Happy Stitching Everyone
