Believe!

My Christmas ‘Believe’ cross-stitch is coming on nicely. This is a kit by Dimensions, I think I bought it on one of the facebook destash sites a couple of years ago. I started it a few weeks ago as my ‘handbag’ stitching, that’s a little project I keep in my bag for occasional moments of stitching. Last time I showed it was just after our weekend away when I’d made a good start…

Whilst I’m working my way round the ‘patchwork’ border, I’m using up threads that have been cut in other areas, it’s worked pretty well as two small stripy blocks have been completed just on leftovers!

I won’t make as much progress for a couple of weeks as I’ve just started my Anthea Calendar SAL for October, but hopefully I’ll finish it in time for Christmas, I’m thinking of making it into a cushion.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
