Christmas Cross Stitch Tah Dahhhhhhhh!!!!!

My very first proper stitched picture......scene.......whatever its called......I am so chuffed
that i actually finished something that requires  stickability....!!!!!!!
What do you think

I bought the frame in Tesco for eight euro & its just right for it. I proudly positioned the pic on 
my hallway table, in the hopes every visitor will see it & say "oh myyyyyy Karen, did you actually make!!!" 
Don't mind me, what a noodle eh!!!!!
I do like it though & will def stitch again, found it so easy & relaxing

Wanted to share a few lil christmas hearts also.......

Will make lots more of these as simple gifts for friends, just sweet & simple!!!
Well do have a great evening, thank you so much for all the nice comments,will def reply v soon

Lots of love & millions of hugs & kisses Karen x

  4. Lovely stitching! Well done! Mandy :)

  5. Ahh, you are such a gorgeous noodle. I used to do cross stitch but my eyesight is poor at night, plus I am still loving my crochet. I have a few half done cross stitch pictures...maybe one day. I love your little Christmas teddy scene, not to mention your hearts.

  6. Well done on completing your first cross stitched picture, Karen! You did a wonderful job too, so one would think it was the first one you've done! Love all your Christmassy pictures really are good at capturing that festive feeling. Have a happy day.

  7. lovely crossstitch Karen,I also LOVE the spotty heart,loljuliexxxxxx

  8. Gee you're a clever chook aren't you! Your cross stitch is stunning!! It made me laugh because I've just found a bag tucked away in the attic with an attempt at cross stitch safely tucked inside. I tried it for half an hour at the insistence of a friend that I'd love it, and then I promptly popped it back in the bag after that and it never saw the light of day for another 12 years. Might just have to give it another go now after seeing your inspirational work!!!!

    Have a fab week hon. If I don't get to pop back this week, I hope you and your gorgeous family have a truly wonderful Christmas!

  9. Oh, I can just feel the love you so sweetly put into every stitch! Love visiting over here! That is why I am nominating you for the Liebster blog award. I recently received it and wanted to pass it along to you. I understand that some bloggers prefer not to do awards, so if you don't want to pop over my way and claim it, no worries ;-) Happy day to you!

  10. Love the cross stitch & all of your xmas decorations, so pretty!! xx

  11. Hello Karen...I love your cross stitched is so pretty...You have inspired me to have a go too...It should definitely be on show for all your festive visitors to admire!
    Wishing you a lovely Christmas with your family,
