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

I am enjoying stitching this series and have just joined up to stitch the Frosty Forest series by Cottage Country Needleworks and there is a blog called Frosty Forest SAL you can join to show your progress.

This looks like it going to be nice project to do with the first pattern now released.

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.

Some Oldies

Over the years I have done a lot of Cross Stitching.  Sometimes I go full speed ahead and sometimes very slow.  Most I have got photos of, but there are some I have unfortunately missed out on getting before I gave them away as presents.

Anyway here are some I have never posted pictures of before.

These first two were a couple of kits I got from my sister'n'law one Christmas.


I had a fascination with chooks at one time and had to stitch this.


Everyone loves Piglet


and also Tiger


 This Cherished Teddies was one of my first Cross Stitches I done and was a big momentum for me at the time to finish it.
