One of my Christmas presents this year was a gorgeous cross-stitch kit from my in-laws. It’s called The Little School Sampler and it’s designed by Jane Greenoff. I just love the subtle colours and also the way she uses lots of different stitches, it’s not just cross-stitch. It’s also a perfect size for popping in my handbag when we go away! We went to visit my in-laws last week so it seemed a perfect time to start my new cross-stitch. I was quite surprised how quickly it grew…or maybe that’s just an indication of how I get somewhat addicted to a project!
This is my progress so far, there’s a square of hardanger embroidery at the bottom, I still haven’t decided whether to do that or to stitch my initials and the date.
I’m linking up with Kathy’s Quilts for Slow-Stitching Sunday, a celebration of all things hand-stitched. Why not have a look what everyone else has been stitching over the festive period.
