Completely off topic but had to show you!

Unfortunately my poor stitching has had to take a back seat over the last week. I have decided to re-start my little crafting venture and so have been researching my many crafty ideas (including candle making which looks like fun!).

Yesterday I went to my local (remember I'm in Germany) garden centre to see what bits I could get and ended up sitting all afternoon making Jars of Christmas, I've posted some pics below (again excuse the bad photography! Lol).

I just need to add tags labelled "Jar of Christmas" and they're finished! :) I have sold one already, the little girl in the jar with the red ribbon.... she was my favourite too. Just need to get more jars and I'll be making a lot more of these, they are so festive and cute. :D

I'll also be making cards, starting with Christmas ones of course, candles, various felt items for kids and anything else that pops into my mind. My husband has agreed to help me turn our celler into a workshop and even wants to have ago at some of my ideas!!

Phew, sorry for yacking on I'm just so excited!! I'll post pics of everything I create so you can see. It just means a few unstitchy pics will be appearing but I'm sure all my crafty friend wont mind. :)

Hope you're all having a great weekend!! BIG hugs! xxxx

Finally finished!

Well Lickle Ted is complete at last. He really was nice to stitch and I even enjoyed all the backstitch too. :)

                                             Here's a pic, excuse the poor camera skills! Lol.

Next, I'll be working on another design from World of Cross stitch. It's an African lady with butterflies and a deer. I can't start her tomorrow because the boys have swimming lessons and we get in too late. I'll def have her started on Thursday night though. :)

Hope you all had a good weekend and that your week is going well so far too... lots of stitching and crafting going on I hope.

Big hugs xxx

I'm back!!

Hello everyone. I'm so sorry for being a bit quiet recently, I started having major internet problems which wasn't allowing me to view any of my favourite pages and then I started losing my stitchy bug, but refused to let him slip away that easily!!

I only have Lickle Ted's foot to complete and then backsitch his lower half and he is finished! :) I'll post a pic as soon as he is... I'm aiming for a Sunday finish so a couple more days and he is done.

I hope everyone else has had a better week than mine. At least it's the weekend now!! :D

Have a fab day everyone. xxxx
