WIP/UFO in progress - Christmas Kisses by Margaret Sherry

I can't believe that it is so long since I last posted!  Where does the time fly!  I still need to do more on my "Winter Wonderland".  More back stitching needing to be done!  But I have found an old WIP/UFO.  Its the Mouse and Robin by Margaret Sherry called "Christmas Kisses".  Another card I started and not finished.  I started on the blue back ground and found I should have used one thread and not two.  So I hope I have enough, or at least have some thread like it in my stash, so I can at least finish it off, as I'm not going to unpick the blue.  But here's a photo of it so far.

Christmas Kisses a Margaret Sherry Design.
This is what it shall look like when it's finished.

Margaret Sherry Cat and Robin Christmas Card

First of all I want to say a big welcome to all my new followers.

On Friday I bought 'Cross Stitch Crazy', issue 171.  From there I got a bit side tracked as I had to stitch the lovely freebie by Margaret Sherry of a "Cat and Robin Christmas Card".  I've just finished stitching the card, and here is a picture of it.
