Christmas Past and a Giveaway!!

In another, earlier crafting life I used to do cross-stitch, a lot of cross-stitch.....and it would appear that I was very good at the cross-stitch but not at making something with them or framing them.....it would appear that this finishing issue moved over to my later crafting frenzies!!

I found a pile of slightly crumpled cross-stitch in a box and I took some photos of my cross-stitch collection....



If anyone would like to win one of these completed, yet somehow unfinished cross-stitch pictures then just leave a comment here by the 31st of December and I will choose a winner.....

Oh I remember my cross-stitching days! Short story: I was cross-stitching a gift for my husband (why, i don't know) when I thought I swallowed the needle. Made hubby rush me to the ER. After x-rays and such they told me there was no needle. He hasn't let me live that down yet!

I'm loving the ABC's!

Ohhh Di, I didn't know you were a former stitch-lady! These look perfect :-) Imagine all the cute christmas projects you could do with these (besides framing them). Wihing you a wonderful christmas with friends and family!

Those are beautiful! I knew you were good at embroidery, but hadn't thought about cross-stitch.
Have a wonderful and merry Christmas!

I love doing cross stitch. I remember when there was only one book out back in the 70's and I made everything in the book. I have lots of counted cross stitch around the house. Love the snowmen!

Hi there..

Found your blog at my friend Kristina´s blog. (karkovski)

I think the snowman in the dark with all the stars are the best and I would love to make him into a christmas-pillow..

Merry christmas from Denmark.. Laila.

Enter me because I just love every one of them!! You were good! I think Caroline would appreciate these also because she just learned a little bit of how to cross-stitch too. But it really doesn't surprise me that you could... you are multi-craft-talented!!! ;))

Impressive! Love them all, but I'll sit out of this one. Just wanted to say hello. I've got my own pile of unfinished projects to go through.

I'm guilty of the same thing! So sad!
I love these by Lizzie Jane...I think?
