All Crosses Done...

So pleased to have finished all the cross stitches for my Christmas Angel... it's been a while in the stitching... now to bring it to life with the back-stitch outlining & whatnot... yes it's a terrible pic, sorry...
In recent weeks I have been watching Lark Rise To Candleford, from the beginning... my Angel stitching has been completed to the viewing of the final series... it's another that I watch repeatedly, great to watch while stitching... so glad that Gabriel Cochrane went back to Dorcas... & that Alfie proposed to Minnie, she says YES every time I watch it, LOL... What a great show!

I have read a really interesting post over at Val's blog... discussing the various 'values' of craft works, particularly quilts... I think many readers would find it so interesting, especially those who make quilts, but can apply to all of us regardless of what we make... if you have not already read it, here's a link to the post.
Plus, the quilt featured in the post is A-mazing!!

Due to the influence of so many encouraging Comments about the pincushion featured in my previous post, I am happy to say it's staying with me...but I will make another for the giftie box, they are such dainty designs...

It is a worry when I am so busy I missed one of your posts...... The little pin cushion is just cute as a button, I have a fetish for them myself..... The cross stitch is - wow. I can't wait to see it finished. So much time and work. Super well done.
