Having finished my Christmas baubles, I went back to my stash of kits to be completed. I have a few very labour intensive kits, but want to save these for the New Year when the days get longer and the light is far better. So I decided on another small kit by The Bluebird Embroidery Company which features a three dimentional, stumpwork goldfish sitting on a needle lace background. It is quite a small piece and I thought that instead of mounting it I could make a brooch from it.
Here is what the kit contains….
Before I go to enjoy the next couple of days, I thought that you might like to see my advent calendar. I do not normally have the patience for cross stitch, but many years ago (25!) I decided to create my own calendar – which I still use today and fill it with my favourite chocs!
I do hope that you are all enjoying the festivities, Merry Christmas and happy sewing to all!!
