Cross Stitch Frenzy
I was going to go straight on to stitching the next one but thought I should really stitch the next book mark for the round robin I organised. A while ago I ordered some Popcorn Bear bookmark kits and I decided to use one of them. The person I am to stitch for next is a huge Tatty Ted fan and I thought she might find this little bear equally cute. As you can see I finished it fairly quickly.
Then last night I couldn't sleep and I remembered the little Dr Who keyring I had designed but hadn't finished. I hunted it out and it turned out that all I had left to do was the back stitch. I finished it off pretty quickly and now all I need to do is send it off to my friend. I know it is slightly different from the TARDIS but I had to make a few changes so that it would fit into a smaller size. I'm sure my friend will like it though. I was going to have 'Police Box' written at the top but the design was too small for me to fit it in so I decided it was best to leave it.
Anyway, I have started on the next Harry Potter bookmark and this one is for Hufflepuff. I don't think I will finish this one quite as quickly as I have work. Also I have ran out of black thread so I wouldn't be able to finish it anyway.
I've rather enjoyed stitching these small designs. Maybe it's just the larger ones I am fed up doing.
