Santa Cross-stitch!

This is one of my treasures! I probably did this cross-stitch in the Eighties - long before I ever started quilting. It was done on 32-count linen and for any of you Cross-stitchers out there, you would know how difficult it is to work on linen - I was a bit of a Purist at the time and only linen was good enough for me! I'm glad I did it then as I probably won't dedicate the hours of work it took to complete!

I am in the throes of decorating my Blog for Christmas - will have to visit Julia for a bit of help with a complimentary background!

Also - and this is a bit of a huge task - I am busy putting my pics in order to copy to my new External Hard Drive. Had to have a bit of Blogland therapy - now I'm going to have some lunch , then to take Mum to the podiatrist!

Have a great weekend and don't get too stressed with all the last minute stuff - hugs!

PS - this will be my Christmas Blog forever, thanks, Julia, love you !

That is absolutely gorgeous! I worked on linen too, and now I don't know if my eyes can handle it any more. I really appreciate what others can do with it.

You have a beautiful blog. So nice to find you!
