A Stitched Snow Globe

Remember the in-progress cross stitch project I blogged about a couple of weeks ago?

Well, I finished it!


As you can see, it's a little silver snow globe - with a couple of mountains, a little cottage, some fir trees and (of course) some snow.


This is the first cross stitch picture I've designed - before this I'd only made a sampler or two, and some mini sampler brooches. I'm quite pleased with the finished result and, apart from the fiddly silver sections and all that unpicking I had to do when I changed my mind about some of the colours I was using (sigh), this was a super relaxing project to work on in the evenings this winter.

I think there is definitely going to be more cross stitch in my future!


I'm hoping to get the pattern written up neatly so I can share it with you guys sometime soon... if anyone is interested?

Thanks for all the kind comments, folks xx I'm not sure when I'm going to have the chart ready, but I'll be sure to blog about it when I do :)

Kay - I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for yet!
