Christmas cross stitching

Are you all sick of hearing about my cross stitched Christmas cards yet? I’m certainly sick of the sight of them! Luckily I’m all done now and this will be my last post about them (for this year, at least). I must apologise for the quality of some of the photos – I have no idea why I find it so difficult to get Jan’s camera to work for me! At this point I’m pretty sure it just hates me!

I’m sure you’ve all been dying to see the design I did for my dad made up into a card – at least that’s what I like to tell myself 😉 Here it is:

bah humbug card

I took two photos of that card and the above turned out best… so you can imagine how terrible the other one was!

The design I was working on when I asked you to guess what I was stitching also became a card:

blue snowman

I liked the little snowman so much that I decided to stitch him a friend! This is actually among my favourites of the cards I made, along with the bah humbug one. I just love the pretty snowflake paper I used for the background.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to go into detail about all the cards I made. Here’s a selection of photos of the rest.

There are more, but I think that’s enough for one post!
And now for something a little different… I decided to use a pattern from one of my magazines and try my hand at making a Christmas tree ornament. I chose a snowman because it looked like it would be fairly easy to cut to shape at the end. Here he is:

I think he turned out quite well 🙂 Mr snowman is now all wrapped up and on his way to my grandma, who will hopefully love him lots and give him a happy home!

I’m linking this up to day 7 of Becster’s 12 Days of Christmas, which was Christmas crafts. I don’t think I’ve done this many crafts at Christmas ever, not even when I was a small child and we made decorations and things in school! I think the end products are worth all the effort though.

  1. I love the Bah Humbug one! I used to live in a share house where someone owned a santa hat except it was black rather than red and had ‘bah humbug’ written on the brim. The household rule was that you had to wear that hat if you wanted to complain about Christmas. It got worn quite a lot!

  2. I’m not at all sick of seeing your creations. I think they’re lovely! I love the sense of humor that comes with stitching someone (or receiving) a Bah Humbug card with a cute little Santa hat. 🙂 I also like Zoe’s idea of wearing a humbug hat if one wants to complain about Christmas! Have a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
