You might recall that I still had one Christmas make to finish before Christmas. Luckily for me it didn't need to be hand delivered until December 28th, which enabled me to finish it on time. I reprised a hoop I made before. Because the recipient has the same sense of humour as me.
I used two strands of floss to stitch this and was really pleased with my stitching. I used stem stitch for all the lettering and getting those corners smooth meant a lot of very small stitches. Weirdly, I enjoy stuff like this.
I would also like to show you this lovely Christmas make I received from my Instagram buddy - dlynnb - in a little exchange we did just between the two of us.
The cross stitch is beautiful and I love the way she put a little seed bead where each of us lives. Thank you so much, Dinah.
If anyone ever asks you what benefits social media brings to your life you can tell them from me that it allows you to meet people that you would probably never meet otherwise, forge friendships, get inspiration, support and laughter - all this from the often maligned social media. I for one like it!
