A Magazine and a Neglected Blog

I must really post more often on this blog and will try.  For those who do not follow my main blog I have been doing my Master of Nursing and finally last month passed and the recommendations and changes were approved 2 weeks ago so off to the printers now, which means more time for me.  

So far I have been reading lots of books .... lots.... and getting some stuff ready for the local A&P show in a few weeks time.  However I do need to get back into my first love which is cross stitch, and what would get me into the mood ..... a Christmas cross stitch magazine.



I have already chosen my first one and after getting the show bits finished I will get into it.

Cleaned Out the Competition

Last month I entered three cross stitches I had completed over the years in the local A&P show Home Industries section.

Well I would never have thought I would do it, but I cleaned out the cross stitch section with a 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

You may have seen these on my blog before but here they are.





A great day had and already planning is in progress for next years competition

A Long Stitch

Not exactly a cross stitch, but a long stitch.  I stitched this kit a number of years ago after receiving it as a gift from my family for Christmas.  I did enjoy doing it at the time but am not that keen on longstitch still.
