My New Cross Stitch Forum

Hi everyone

Just to let you all know I have opened my own little cross stitching forum.

I plan for it to only be a small group. A place for friends to meet up and have a natter and to enjoy our cross stitch.

If you would like to join, please feel free to head over to

I'd love to see you there.

Newton's Law - UFO and a finished one

While looking through my stash I have come across 2 Newton's Law items I've stitched and started to  I thought I'd share them with you.

Happy New Year

I would like to wish anybody that is passing a Happy New Year.  If you have had a bad 2011 like'm hoping 2012 is so much better.

I have managed to do an hours stitching so I'm pleased.

I think I'm going to try doing a test stitch in preparation for starting my HAED project, to see whether I'm going to stitch 1 over 1 or 2 over 1 on 27ct evenweave.

I thought I would take a picture of my WIP Frederick the Literate.  I may add them to a page of their own so you can easily see the design grow.

Here is another one, I just could not will see my Bengal cat Freya asleep underneath...sweet.

So it's a Happy New Year and Happy Stitching.
