Birth Sampler Finished!



I finished the birth sampler for Callum this afternoon. It still needs a wash and iron before I take it to the framers though. I didn't expect to have it finished quite so quickly but I have been off work since Wednesday as I have stretched the ligaments in my knee which has involved lots of rest and you know what that means! Yeah lots of cross stitching. As I have finished the birth sampler I will have a new start and I think it will be CCN Home Sweet Home as we have just decorated the hall and I think this will look lovely on the wall.

I am now going to go back to my rotation now that I have finished all my obligation stitching. I did briefly think about stitching Christmas cards but I brought quite a few cards in the January sales so have decided not to stitch Christmas cards this year but perhaps stitch one a month throughout next year. So it is the turn of my Dimensions Row of Love I will be stitching on this week (Friday to Friday).

The next picture is two charts I brought from Michelle (http://stitchcraftplace.blogspot.com/) when she was having a stash clear out. Thanks Michelle. The LHN Poinsettia House fell into my basket when I was ordering some threads I needed for the LHN Ornie SAL. I think I am going to have to ban myself from buying any more charts in the New Year lol.

Hope your knee feels much better soon. Now that was a quick finish, so I guess the enforced rest had its up side. :0)

Sorry about your knee but good for a great stitchy time, I knitted a whole jumper once when I pulled a leg muscle and had to have a week off! I loved the birth sampler, aren't there just lovely things around these days, nothing like that when mine were born or if there were I didn't know anyone who would have stitch me one... boo hoo..
Happy Stitching..... those CC looked fabulous!
