Adventures in Counted Cross Stitch #1

The problem with crafting is that once you're in, you're in. It's very easy to get hooked! In addition to becoming a crocheter, I recently picked up counted cross stitch. I wondered where to start, and then I saw these small kits tucked away on a shelf in PNA, and with my love of all things Christmas, I just had to pick out all the Christmas-themed ones! I've now done each pattern that I bought once - hopefully by the time December comes around I will have plenty done to use for a variety of purposes! Here are the designs I have done so far, I just still need to iron the guideline folds out. So far, I think the little reindeer is my favourite!

  1. They're all so cute, especially the Christmas tree. They'd look great in little frames on the Christmas tree or made in to Christmas cards! xx
