Feeling the cross stitch love .........

..... here is a progess pic of my LHN Virtues Sampler.....loving this one.
This weekend Chookyblue is hosting a Cross Stitch Display where there will be some possibly long lost cross stitch being revealed.  I've taken a few pics this afternoon of some earlier cross stitch pieces, it's made me realise how little I have stitched for my own home - most of mine have been stitched for family and friends big '0' birthdays, weddings and anniversaries etc.  I will put a post together for Saturday, so check out Chookyblue's blog to find out all the others who are joining in too. 

I've made up Leannes hexies this weekfor Stitching Round the Block, I'm expecting her stitchery in the mail tomorrow, so will get the next stage of her piece finished and on it's way to Janis.  Aren't Leanne's fabrics pretty, I really love the violets and dragonflies.  Thanks for all the kind comments about my SRTB piece from my last post.  I've heard from Janis that it finally made it to her, it took nearly a week in the mail though :-(
And here are some gingerbread men we made a while back.  The girls had lots of fun rolling and cutting out the shapes and some got decorated with the little silver 'buttons'.  Looked good enough to eat - I'm told by some pretty reliable sources that they tasted great too!



Hope to see you on Saturday...............till next time, happy stitching....Nicky

Nice progress on the LHN sampler. It's going to be a very pretty piece.

Love those hexies. They look so tedious to make though!

And those are the cutest gingerbread men I've seen in a long time!

Gorgeous photos Nicky - Those gingerbread men look good enough to eat, and I agree, Leanne's fabrics are very sweet. I look forward to seeing more of your cross stitch.
