Cross Stitching

 Finally !! - Two cross stitching projects which were ongoing for a couple of years, but are now finally finished, I still have 4 other smaller projects on the go, Motorcycle, Lavender Field scene, Needlecase & Scissors Keep,  in a lavender bouquet  design using loads of french knots for the flowers as well as cross stitch, Dolphins frolicking and One large one, which is similar to the butterfly wall hanging, but with 12 individual flower panels,  so on past experience some of them will be finished in 2 or 3 years or so.  I don't do much Cross-stitching at home, it tends to get done when we are away with the caravan.

I am entering the Advent calender into a crafting challenge - Cute and Girly - Animal Antics

Advent Calender uses a Tatty Teddy pattern at the top, and various small designs that took me a couple of years to find the right ones, they are small pockets, which can have sweet or something small popped into it,  I personally I like Werthers butterscotch candy sweets, they are individually wrapped in gold coloured wrappers and will fit just nicely and most of all they are lovely.  So I'll be able to use it at last this Christmas

The butterfly wallhanging is 80cm  x 50cm, and lined /framed with lemon cotton fabric.
