Since I updated last I have added more snow to the LHN "Bringing Home the Tree" Christmas ornie. The hand dyed thread is called "oatmeal" and I love how the colour is slightly "dirty" in places (hand dyed that way) just like real snow.
I have loved the quaint "cut through" drawings by Amanda Loverseed since I first came across her pictures on greeting cards five years ago. Delighted I was when I discovered these pictures have been converted to cross stitch kits by Bothy Threads. Linda from convinced me that I had to join her Cut Thru' SAL on Mondays. In order to join this SAL I had to buy a kit (or two as it happens). This is the first - Gypsy Wagon. The kit is very well put together with beautifully organised threads and easy to read instructions/pattern. I can't wait to make a start. It is stitched on light blue 14count Aida.
I hope you have found creative time for yourself over the weekend.
