February Faby Fest

I try and have a seasonal display of my cross-stitch smalls, changing them each month. The obvious theme for February is Valentines Day, but we have our wedding anniversary in March, so I tend to have the lovey-dovie ones out then. Last year I decided to display all my Faby Reilly smalls and have a Faby Fest for February instead. I’m doing the same this year, so here’s just a few of my Faby Reilly makes…

…and then of course there’s my Anthea book of Days, here’s February’s entry…

So I’ve put together a little display, missing out the ones which were too Christmassy and also my lovely Lizzie stitching wallet as I’ve clearly put it somewhere very safe…so safe I can’t find it! The only one that isn’t one of Faby’s designs is the February one with ducks on.

Faby has a large range of beautiful cross-stitch designs, mainly flowers but other themes too, if you like her style just follow the link above to her website.

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!

      Hi, the flower designs are from Faby’s Anthea Calendar which is on her website, the wordplay opposite is my own design. In the tab above called Textile Books I’ve put links to the posts in which I describe how I made the actual book. Hope that helps.

    It’s as if you hold the national collection. 😀
    They’re all such beautiful makes I don’t blame you for wanting to put them all on display.
