New Pattern

The third Christmas Bubble Bird counted cross stitch pattern is in the shop now.

It is a European Goldfinch, one of the top-rated stitching birds among European cross stitchers. We plan to design Bullfinch and Cardinal on a Christmas Bubble too. Which one do you prefer?

Christmas Bubbles

It turns gorgeous! Azure Tit Christmas bubble cross-stitched on a plastic canvas. I haven’t decided yet how to finish it, maybe I stitch the second bubble with another bird and then unit them together. For the present, the first bird without and with the backstitch is ready!

New Review

This review is particularly dear to me because there is an interesting story connected with it. At the beginning of October, Michelle bought a Christmas Stars garland from me. After that, she ordered three more Stars buntings. I sent her the first order on the 5th of October, made the other three garlands and sent them almost a week later, on the 11th of October. Twelve days later, Michelle wrote to me that she had received three buntings and waiting for the first one. The tracking said, “Sent from Poland”. Registered mail from Poland to the USA usually arrives in two weeks, and sometimes even faster. This time, the order from the 5th of October flew to the customer for almost a month. All the colleagues I consulted on the subject said that the parcels sent on 5-6 October were wandering around and had a terrible delay in delivery. What was the reason for this is not known. I am doubting Michelle’s patience and am grateful that she wrote to me after she had received all her ordered garlands. And she still gave me such a lovely review!

Shipping Time

On Monday, I sent the large order consisting of three Christmas Stars garlands to Bellmawr, NJ, USA. I hope the buyer will be pleased with her purchase and that her Christmas tree will look beautiful. I added some crocheted snowflakes to this purchase as a gift, and I hope they will match. I had to buy a bigger box because my permanent packaging didn’t fit three buntings.

In a completely different way I packed the choker, which I shipped the same day to Lake Orion, MI, USA. It was bought for the first time, so I’m looking forward to the customer’s opinion on this product.

Christmas Tree Buntings

Usually, when I get an idea for a new garland, many orders appear in the shop, and I can’t finish the work I started. That was the case this time too. I started making Christmas tree garlands and received a big custom order for a multi-coloured Christmas Stars garland. But by the end of the week, I plan to finish this order and send three Stars buntings to my customer. By the way, the history behind new garlands is also intriguing. I have several items at home that I purchased with the idea that they will come in handy one day. That’s how I bought these colourful buttons, which had been lying idle for years. Suddenly I had the idea to crochet a Christmas tree garland and decorate each Christmas tree with these buttons. Which buttons do you like better: the larger or smaller with polka dot ones? I promise to have these two buntings in the shop by this weekend.

New Pattern in Progress

New cross stitch Christmas tree ornaments Icicles in progress. They are like old-world Christmas decorations or festive Christmas decor. There will be not only a cross stitch pattern but detailed assembly instruction too. I am wondering whether to stitch them on Aida or plastic canvas?
