merry christmas all

Well this is the only stitching i have managed to do this month - a faberge ornamenet from CrossStitcher mag done on plastic canvas, havent used this before but i am liking it for ornies. just got it finished this afternoon and up on the tree - phew just in time! But December has been a bit full on, we got our new kitchen fitted and living room floor and doors done as well

These are the before pictures

and then these are the after. Sorry they are not the best pictures but it is just a small kitchen and hard to get any decent pictures but you can get the general gist. I am so pleased with it! I can actually move about and have so much more worktop now - it's just brilliant (didn't know i could get that excited about a kitchen lol...)

We've also bought a new stereo which is basically just a fancy hard drive and so the last few nights have been spent uploading all our rather grubby old cd's. Been having great fun with this though as rediscovering loads of tracks we had forgetten about.

So things are finally settling down now just in time for Christmas Day. Am going to get a new rotation sorted out for the new year and obviously a new start thrown in there for good measure.

I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas .. will be back in the new year.


  1. I like using plastic canvas for ornaments and they make beautiful 3 D ornies.

  2. I've used plastic canvas for ornies. They're great for on-the-go kits. :) Yours turned out nice.

    Did you have tile on your kitchen walls? Was it a pain to take off and refinish the walls? I have them on mine and I'm contemplating it.


Thanks for stopping by!
