What have I been stitching?

I decided to pick up some Christmas stitching and set aside some dedicated time to work on The Twelfth Day of Christmas. It has been sat in my works in progress for quite some time now.

I am making them into little pillow ornaments. The colours are so pretty and I really enjoy stitching them but there is quite a lot of work in these beaded pillows.

If you would like to see how I bead small pillows then check out my You Tube video here where I show how I do my beading or you can find some tips in this blog post here.

A blog friend’s stitching.

Talking of Christmas stitching, I was delighted to receive two lovely photos of Mini Cat finishes stitched by a blogging friend Debbie.

First up is Mini Cat in a stocking, this was a free pattern many years ago but has been a very popular pattern.

Debbie created this lovely ornament and finished it beautifully!

And then I saw this gorgeous pillow Debbie made, I love it and hope you do too!

Thank you Debbie for sending the photos, they are really pretty.

Until next time, happy stitching!
