I hope you all had a good week-end! From the 16-18 March it was the International Hermit and Stitch Weekend. I'm always pleased when this starts, as it gives me an incentive to get some stitching done. I've been looking at my copy of the 2003 "Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments", and found a wonderful design by The Prairie Schooler, called "Herald Angels". It fits in with the "Starry Night" designs she has already charted, and I have already stitch one of the "Wise Men", which can be found here.

My friend Janet sent me some cross stitch goodies that she spotted in a charity shop. A magazine called "Cross Stitch Gifts", which I did not have in my collection and a couple of small kits. I loved one of the kit's so much I started stitching it right away. I used my own threads as not many remained in the kit. I'm quite pleased with how it looks as a Christmas Card. And here it is.

In the United Kingdom, Sunday was Mothering Sunday. So it was lovely to see my daughter and she bought me a wonderful gift. An Owl shaped cushion. Something I have really wanted.

It's always hard to judge the size by just a photograph. He's just the right size at approximately 12" x 12" or 30.5cm x 30.5cm.
