February Update

As February comes to a close and Spring gives way to Winter, I can’t help but notice that I am STILL stitching CHRISTMAS things! What is wrong with me!? I don’t know if it’s because I love Christmas so much, or I just can’t work up the energy to go through the stash box and sort out something a little more appropriate for the time of year. Looking back though, I was stitching Summer holiday things in December, so maybe as a stitcher I am destined to always be working on unseasonable things!

Here’s a Christmas card I put together from a cover kit using some of the techniques my card making-sensei has been teaching me:

Christmas Teddy card (1)

Christmas Teddy card (2)

I hope for my next update to have done something more substantial, now that I am fully back in good health, and my Postgrad courses are coming to a close. I would love love love to be able to get back to working on my Magnum Opus, so please be patient with me while I write up my final essay- I can’t wait!

  1. That card looks amazing! I say if you want to stitch Xmas designs in February, you go girl! 😀 I love Christmas projects and would do them all year long if I hadn’t already committed to other gift stitching 😉

  2. Does it really matter what you stitch and when ? Last year I started making Christmas cards in January. These things are called “A Hobby” which is doing something you enjoy any time, so if you are still stitching Christmas things (which btw are looking really good) then go ahead and have fun.

    • I completely agree! I get some strange looks from the men in the office though when I stitch on my lunch breaks, they just don’t get it – Or maybe they’re jealous of how organised and prepared we crafters are!
