Stitching for Christmas

I have been in the mood for stitching something Christmassy, so I had a rummage through my charts and found a lovely Lizzie Kate design called 'Dear Santa, We've got cookies!' which I decided to stitch for myself.
It only took a few days, so here it is...

Then I thought I would stitch something to go in one of the tuck pillows I have in my stash. Again, I decided on a Lizzie Kate chart. It's one of the Flip It Stamps range & it will be a birthday present for my Mum.

When searching in my garage for a frame to frame up Meg & Mog, I found a small frame which would fit the Queen Anne House I started a while ago. I had finished all the stitching & beading and it was just waiting for me to add the tree button to it. I left the glass out of the frame as all the beads made it too 3D to fit nicely under glass. It looks good, though and is already hanging up in my spare room.

Spooky Stitching!

After starting this fab design in 2009(!) and not finishing it for Halloween that year, I have finally dug it out again and finished off the last bits of stitching. There wasn't much to do, although using the glow-in-the-dark threads on Mog's eyes, Megs shoes and Owl's eyes was a bit tricky.
All I need to do now is find a frame for it and get it framed & hung on the wall by October!
