Hi everyone, here is an update on Santa’s Village, I have just finished the second cottage and have begun to stitch the next one. I have not had chance to do much stitching because I have been overseeing the craft room installation, I was hoping to have finished the third cottage by now, however, it just means I need to stitch the next one a little faster! I love the way it looks on this grey fabric, it is quite soft on the eye.
Craft room update
My craft room is now installed, I have had a few plug sockets moved which means I need to paint over the walls in some areas, once I have done that I will be choosing new curtains and a new chair.
It did not take me long to empty the room because everything was already in boxes, however, it did take me much longer to fill it again and I have still a bit more to do, once everything is in its place and the room has been repainted I should be ready to show photos and, hopefully, a video! That may take some time, so, I have taken photos of the display cupboard with the LED lights inside for you to take a peek at. (photos below)
I have organised all my craft things into their own drawers and cupboards, it is so much easier to access my things now and be able to create in this lovely room. I have a number of things I am looking forward to designing over the next few weeks and then showing on my blog.
When I was sorting through all of my craft room boxes I found some unfinished projects that I forgot I had, one design only needs a few more stitches and quite a bit of back stitch to finish it. The design is a Noah’s Ark scene stitched on Aida over a small count so it looks quite lovely, hopefully I should be showing that soon.
I also found a fully finished cross stitch that I forget to frame, it is a Mirabillia Fairy design, I can’t believe I actually forgot to get it framed!

Some of these projects were exchange pieces, therefore not everything in the photographs has been stitched by me, if you ever did an exchange with me you just may see it below – can you spot any of your stitching?
A big welcome to all of my new followers, until next time – Happy Stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
