Holiday Stitching Finish

Hi friends

firstly, can I thank you for all the recent comments, they are always appreciated, and a warm welcome to my new followers - wonderful to have you here.

This is the little project I took with me to Napier and have just finished this week. I had been wanting to stitch this design ever since it came out early last year.


"A Stitcher's Heart" by Little House Needleworks
stitched on 32ct mocha belfast using recommended threads

One of my 2013 goals is to make up more of my stitching finishes as I go so I'll be hunting through my fabric stash later today to find some matching backing fabric. 

I'm looking forward to the weekend starting - Hannah has her first disco tonight and she is so excited! It's the finale event of the local library holiday reading programme, and all the children are presented with a certificate and a new book.  My cousin Donna is also arriving tonight to stay over for the weekend so I'm sure we'll be up late tonight catching up, yakking away!

See you soon x

Gorgeous project. Can you believe I am working on christmas projects. I fell in love with some cross stitch stockings and am doing one for hubby and one for myself. I am so enjoying them. French country JBW Designs, both different designs and colours. John's is green and mine is going to be red. Have a great weekend.

This is so very beautiful! I missed this pattern due to my stitching hiatus last year. Seeing yours stitched up makes me want to run and buy one. (smile)

I love all your stitching. Your choices of design are gorgeous.

A lovely finish and I'm sure it will be a pretty fabric you have chosen for the final finishing of it.
Hope Hannah had a great time at her disco and that your weekend is going well.

It's really lovely Katrina! Let me know if you have any problems with the finishing. I've got some BBD hearts that I'd like to try stitching and then finishing.
