Since I finished my placement I have felt a bit lost and have nothing really to do until I have to go back to Uni in a couple of weeks. A few weeks ago I treated myself to the Womans Weekly Home Series Craft Special magazine and when I browsed through I found a really cute cross stitch pattern. I usually love Cross Stitch but find the pattern kits that are around a bit dull and old fashioned.
This pattern was fresh and modern and really cute with the little birds in the trees. It took about 2 and a half weeks of evenings to complete and I am really pleased with how it turned out.
I am not 100% sure what to do with it yet, I may put it in a frame - Im not sure!
I have also been drooling over the Kiss and Hug cushion kits from Emily Peacock but at £75 I can't quite stretch to that! I found that Cross Stitcher magazine gave away the Hug chart as a free gift on their January issue so after a little bit of hunting I tracked one down.
This pattern is a lot bigger than the one I have just completed but I am already zooming through it!
It is really nice and relaxing to do and I really like how it is turning out.
