A perfect day for stitching ~ but not one cross completed yet!
DH and I decided to go furniture shopping today and SO DID EVERYONE ELSE - busy busy at the furniture store but decision made so looking forward to a delivery of a new oak dining table, chairs and sideboard in the next few weeks.

Time to upload a couple of pics: this was my Christmas project whilst away on holiday in Northumberland near Alnwick - only a small design but fits into a Christmas tuck-away pillow so will be out on display next year ~ it's a mini cross stitch kit by DMC and features Ramond Briggs Father Christmas

Early January all the white fluffy stuff arrived so decided project #2 should be relevant so here's The Mitten Collector designed by Diane Arthurs for Imaginating, Inc.  I stitched it on 14-count Smoketone Aida and the handmade Mitten Button (the letter O) came with the kit.  The overall size of the fabric was fairly large so have enough fabric surrounding the design to turn it into a cushion, think I'll add a Christmas themed fabric and do a simple envelope opening!

My current project is Noah's Ark by HeartStrings and with the current weather conditions seems to be very relevant too!  I love Sundays ~ the family are all together, roast dinner tonight and then hopefully some stitching ......
