Hi everyone, how are you all? Getting excited about quilt market? As I'm not going to market this time, I've been keeping myself busy on some secret squirrel Christmas sewing, and getting into the spirit of Christmas in a pretty big way. And then the cutest Xmas cross-stitch book arrived from Amazon UK. I mean, seriously, just when I was saying my plate is so full I can't possibly take on anything else before 2017, this incredible book arrives and I find myself dreaming about it non-stop (bet you know the feeling?). So yes, I had to take a little break from my work to treat myself to a few dreamy hours to make a small project. Cross-stitching's where my love of crafts first started when I was 10, and it relaxes me like nothing else ever can.
This book is the latest title by French cross-stitch designer Veronique Enginger, and if you are a cross-stitch fan, it's an absolute must-have for your library. If you don't cross-stitch, well, this book may be just the motivation you need to give it a go! So many cute designs. It was pretty hard to choose one amongst them but I settled on the cute elves wrapping up gifts. It certainly won't be the last thing I stitch though - scroll down to see more designs from the book and you will see why.
I simply had to share this book with you all as I think it's such a great title and one can never have too much festive inspiration! Happy stitching!
