Hi Everyone

I hope you have all had a very good Christmas.  Apart from the wind and rain, we have really enjoyed our Christmas together.  I just wanted to share the Christmas Card that I stitched for my daughter and her husband.  It's a Margaret Sherry design of two hedgehogs kissing under the mistletoe.

Kissing hedgehogs under the mistletoe.

Close up.

Looking forward to stitching more in 2014, and wishing you all a Happy New Year.

Happy Stitching Everyone.

It's almost Christmas!!!

First of all I want to say Welcome to all my new followers.

Yes, I can say that I have been busy stitching!!  I know, it's about time!

While my husband was away, I got out my sewing machine.  I can now show you the OakHaven Owl cushion I've been planning to make for some time.  And here it is.

I'm so pleased with how it's turned out.  

I've also finally made up "The Prairie Schooler" Christmas designs I have been stitching for a few years.  I'm looking forward to seeing them on the Christmas Tree this year.  Here are a few photos of them.

I've also made some Christmas bell shaped ornaments with two Margaret Sherry designs in them.

A present for you.

And lastly here is a WIP from one of the new Christmas cuties designs by Margaret Sherry from Cross Stitch Crazy magazine.  I just need to do the out lining and make up the card.
