Thank you all for your wonderful comments on my previous post. I am here today with two of my finishes for christmas. First one is a small cross stitch wreath. It is a free pattern from here. It is a simple pattern with only 5 colors. you can finish it within a day or two.
I will be finishing off into a small pillow or I will mount it in a cardboard. I trying to make a twisted cord. If I succeed I will be mounting it in the cardboard otherwise a mini pillow. One more idea came into my mind when I was photographing it. I kept the cross stitched piece on a red cushion and was taking photo. The red color border also add beauty to the piece.
So an idea of making borders in red color and then quilting it also there. What's your idea? Mini pillow, mounting on cardboard or quilted square? Suggestions are welcome.
I have crocheted a small mandala or coaster in christmas colors. It is a free pattern from here. I have completed this within half an hour. It is hanging in my wall near my craft table.
So, how is your christmas craft making going on. I have completed one more doily. I am determined to show it only after the finishing touch is over. Otherwise it will be in the WIP list only. I have completed all the squares for sofa seat cover. Will come up with the second set of squares in my next post. Now joining part is going on. I am also working on some embroidery bands on kasuti and needlepoint. Will show u one by one.
I have almost forgot pinterest this year. This week when I was going thru the blog posts one of the post took me to a pinterest board. From that time I was addictive to it. Lots and lots of patterns. saving it. Everytime when I shut down my laptop I will say I will not visit pinterest again. But again when I open the laptop I will be again opening it and browsing thru the patterns and time flies only browsing thru the pinterest boards. So I was not that much productive for the past two days. How about you? Are you get addicted to something without knowing that time is running? Do share it.
