I’ve managed to finish the Snowman cross stitch 🙂 I’ve just ordered a wall hanger to mount it though I haven’t decided whether to use a hanger or a frame yet…we’ll see when it gets here!

snowman finished


Now it’s time to start again on one that has been unfinished for far too long. I started a piece years ago for my mothers 60th birthday (she’s now 62 oops) and it’s still not finished! I misjudged how large and complicated it would be to do.

It will probably take me months more to finish it and if I know myself at all…I’ll get annoyed at it again and put it to one side for a while longer. Maybe she’ll get it for her 70th birthday.

  1. congrats on finishing the snowmans! The other one looks like it would be extremely complicated. When it is finished, I am sure your mother will be so pleased at your work! 😉

    1. Thank you 🙂 She saw the work in progress today and jokingly said….’why don’t you just cut it down to a more manageable size!’ Wish I’d thought of that sooner lol

  2. It turned out so good!
    Wow, your Mum’s one looks like a life long project, but will be beautiful once it’s done.
    I have so many WIPs [work in progress] stored away, every time I see your posts about these, it inspires me to get them out – then the thought slips my mind!! 🙄
    One day!

    1. haha this is just the tip of the iceberg! I have WIPs all over the place 😉 It’s getting there…maybe one day it’ll be done lol just call me fickle and scatter brained 😆 Thank you xx
