Oldie for Ffffiday

Hello Everyone
Thank you for all of your lovely comments It warms the cockles of my heart that you've taken the time and trouble to visit my 'lil ole blog.
I know I listed all of my purchases and then thought that I'd missed off that I thought I had bought the Poinsettia stamps by John Lockwood but now can't find them. I'm hoping that I'd looked and then decided against buying them and not lost the money ... I think a small purchase may just happen, although I'd promised myself that I wouldn't spend any more on craft items! Next Ally Pally has presented me with a bit of a dilemma because it's my Ruby Wedding Anniversary (if we survive that long hee hee!) on the 10th April. I hope to go and perhaps meet the like of Jackie and the Cotswold Crafters
Today's oldie inspired by Erika at Snappy Crafts Hers is a Christmas theme and mine is the third one in the series of cross stitch that I made for SIL as Christmas presents for four years. I have to say once I'd decided to make these at least I didn't have to worry what to buy for 4 consecutive years hee hee! So this one is Summer, SIL had already taken this one out of it's old frame and so it was a little creased when I took the photo (sorry)

Off shopping today for OH's glasses - what joy. I have a couple of new baby cards to make too. I intend to use a recent purchase for a change - so watch this space. I love 'em and have tons of ideas to use it...?
Have a great week end and see you Tuesday


  1. Hello Karen,
    I've just looked back at all the posts I've missed, and they are all fabulous. You know I love your cross stitch and your bag and the wedding card are beautiful.

  4. Hi Karen
    Another brilliant cross stitch. You have some serious patience gal.
    Ok, I'm confused (easily done, I know) Isn't Ruby 40 years? I seriously don't know how as I honestly thought you were about my age (40s) .......straight up! Jeepers, this salsa mularky must be good lol!

  5. Gorgeous cross stitch picture. I have quite a few cross stitch pictures & love looking at them as I appreciate all the work that goes into them.


  6. Hi Karen,
    what a wonderful piece of cross stitch so beautifully created.
    You must have patience of a saint with all that fab work involved.
    I bet the recipients were so impressed, and loved it.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
