Fantasy Sal

Have I talked about my New Year’s resolutions here? I don’t remember, but it doesn’t matter because I can say it now: I am going to finished all my cross stich projects I’ve ever started. The first one is Fantasy Sal, my first Sal bu Durene Jones pattern. I’ve completed the last part – Fairy and now I have to finisha border. Two pictures for you – finished part before and after backstitch’s done.

Christmas Stocking

Christmas gift delivered on time, so I can boast about it. My best and most complicated 2020 year stitching – Dimensions Gold Collection Santa’s Journey Stocking, designed by Peggy Abrams. This was my first Dimensions, I bought the kit on https://www.123stitch.com/ , waited a month before it reached me and stitched it in two months. The kit contains presorted thread, metalic thread, wool yarn , 18 count white Aida, felt, beads, needles (one for stitching and one for beading), and instructions with an alphabet. What is it worth buying an original set for? “What makes a Gold Collection design so special? – An extensive colour palette, stitches (and half stitches) that create texture and depth, and exquisite detail are all hallmarks of the Gold Collection. You create a work of art, and heirloom to enjoy for generations to come.”
