Finished Fall Fox cross stitch and a crochet christmas stocking.

Hello everyone,
How are you all? I hope you are keeping safe and warm.

I have a couple of finished projects to show you the first is the Fall Fox cross stitch I had been stitching these past weeks you may have seen progress pictures on Instagram.

The pattern is from Just Cross Stitch online magazine

Just need to find a frame now I have a few in mind there are more patterns in Just Cross Stitch that I want to stitch oh dear when will I make them all you wonder, the new issue is out now and because I subscribe online I have already printed a few (5) patterns I could not resist though.

Just look above the middle one I have my eye on Winter Wood then the Deer and not forgetting winter Bluebird so lovely and just medium sized projects which seem to be the only ones I want to tackle at the moment. I do have one very large project the Owl Bell Pull waiting in the wings and it is vast and I have not wanted to stitch it lately so have put it to one side with the hope of finishing one day.

The last finished project is crochet and I made this lovely Christmas stocking with Rudolf ready to hang on my wall

pattern is from Love Crochet magazine it is still in the shops now I believe, very easy to make all crocheted in dc stitch and Rudolf is made in separate pieces and appliqued on top, a little stuffing is used to give it shape.

Well that is all for now. Thank you all for your kind comments and visits to my blog I do appreciate them.

 Stay safe and warm
bye for now

Hi Everyone? how are you all?

Lovely sunshine here in Cheshire this afternoon I took Bruno out this morning in the rain with wellies at least that has cleared now, it is that time of year isn't it very changeable.

I showed you a new cross stitch start on Instagram called Fall Fox I have a progress update below

It is coming along slowly as I have been crocheting and knitting to for my new Grand Son due next March. I am knitting a little cardigan with collar and I have started another C2C blanket which I will show soon, I just have not taken a picture yet sorry.

I have taken a picture of this little cute fella though a sweet little crocheted Robin

You know me I cannot resist a cute toy.
