Over the years I have stitched many Tatty Ted Designs. My first one was for my daughters 21st Birthday card. My boss saw what I had been stitching and suggested that I could stitch a card for her daughter Hannah, who was just a little younger than mine. So, for many years I stitched Birthday and Christmas cards for both of them. I did most of the Christmas designs twice, but not all the birthday ones. There was one problem! I hated the backstitching for Tatty Ted. So the best way around it was to stitch two at the same time, but leave the backstitching until the end. I knew I had to finish them both, and on time. So here are some pictures of what I have stitched. These were mostly taken on my old camera (pre digital), so not always good photo's.
First the Christmas Cards.
Next, Birthday Cards.
I have had some lovely things come in the post for me during this month, but I keep forgetting to post pictures of them for you to see. First I received a package from Kate at MSCSG (Margaret Sherry's Cross Stitch Group). I won a competition and was asked what prize I would like. So I chose some DMC threads/floss, as I find it difficult to buy in the shops. And a package came with some lovely purple ribbon also. Here's a picture.
And just last week I received a "Giveraway" prize from Christina who's blog is called "Fugue". I'm just so lucky. I love the Christmas Ornaments Magazine and can't wait to get stitching.
There are some lovely Giveaways about at the moment. Do go have have a look at the following:-
