Cross Stitch Finished Object

I have my very first finished object to share with you!  Last year my Mum got her house completely renovated and an extension built and I must say it’s fabulous,  it also is going to make her life so much easier as she’s getting on in years.  My sisters and I had bought her some new things for the house, like little house warming presents and I had intended to make something handmade,  I was either going to knit or crochet a nice throw (or afghan for US readers) but I had never gotten round to it, I still am adamant to do a throw for her at some stage and would like to try a counterpane throw.  Anyway I had been organising my crafting stash and found a sweet little Home Sweet Home cross stitch kit that I’d gotten free from The World of Cross Stitching a few years back and I realised that it is a perfect little gift for her, it suits the style of house, she will love it because the baby stitched it and she will not be expecting it, so it will be a lovely surprise for her, which is just going to make her feel extra loved and that’s always a good thing. 

So I started it last week and I finished it yesterday and I’m pleased with  been a while since I last stitched but like riding a bicycle it all came flooding back and has given me the stitching bug again!  I really do need to find extra time in the day for all the crafting I plan, though I would have more time to craft if I spent less time planning what to make and more time actually making!


Excuse my photography, the photo was taken with my mobile phone’s camera 🙂

Happy crafting all!

    I sewed this cross stitch a couple of weeks ago! Have a look on my blog, I made mine into a coaster.
