JUST HAD TO... my present from Barb!
I am so glad I did. Another lovely Chrissy deco to proudly display. So cute!I am so spoiled because I looove Cottage Garden threads use heaps of DMC and purple is my favourite colour. Anyone would think that Barb knows me well hehehehe. Thankyou so very much my beautiful friend. I am still busy stitching 4 Christmas stockings for 2 of my great nieces and 2 great nephews. So far I have cut them out , cut out the lining and stitched their names on them. Just need some mojo to get back on the machine now.

I was recently looking at Melody's blog and saw a crosstitch that she had done. I did the same one back in 1993 so I thought I would share it with you.

Sorry about the glare!!!! Where did that 20 years go? I have another one to show you. This one was stitched back in 1990-23 years ago!!! OH MY!

I remember this one had lots of half stitches and some single threads. I also had a 2 year old and a 6 year old.   Now I wonder how I ever got to stitch so much back then LOL.

Well, I guess I had better get back into the sewing room if those stockings are going to be finished in time to post in a day or 2. Wish me luck.



  1. Christmas blessings to you too. I'm so glad you came into my bloggy life.

  2. More gorgeous work Ondrea:) I like the purple threads as well ... to be honest I like all threads! Love the Christmas stockings.
