Cross Stitch display blog hop....

I cannot remember when I did this one, but it would be in the 80's sometime,  and at the time it was quite different from the usual that I had been stitching, I do so love the colours in this one...

what a marvellous trip around today looking at all the cross stitching, my there are some really clever  clever people out there, I have had some rather big hassles with my lappie over the last few months, a combination of living in the back sticks and not having great internet connection, but also sadly  the lappie that I have been using died on Friday evening, and has sadly not been able to be revived.... so a new purchase is inevitable when we next go to town in another week or so... Rowing Man has an Apple Mac, and whilst they are a great machine, it is not that easy to flit between 2 systems, as everything on that unit is so very different from other units...

I have only a few cross stitches hanging about our tiny little cottage, these are some of my favourites,
 the rest haven't yet made it out of the packing boxes, and I am not sure that they will until we build... I am not even sure which boxes to look in to be honest

 This school sampler is currently hanging in our bedroom ... you will have to excuse the reflective glass doing it's thing, but this is the best photo that I could get without taking it off the wall...

 and this one is also hanging in our bedroom, it is the best place in the house that avoids the direct sunlight, other then the wee room, and you all know the one I am talking about, and I am  not hanging them there!

 there is a small mistake in here, but I didn't notice it until it was all framed up and hanging on the wall,

Thanks for the tour guys.... have a look at Chookyblue's blog for the list of blogs to visit

I haven't done too much cross stitching over the last few years, and I did buy a couple of lovely kits when we were last in Paris ... hmmmm where did I put them?? which box might they be packed away in??? perfect for a nice quiet summer night...

Thanks for sharing, just love the fruit and berries one. Sorry to hear about your laptop, I would be lost without mine, although I would probably manage to get a lot more quilting done :)

Hi Shiree, wow, lovely samplers. I really like that second one. So, the Rowan Tree needs a new toy, bummer, a good time to get an update too.
Have fun

Lovely stitching there Shiree! It's funny how crafting trends come and go...we all seem to have had a cross-stitch phase, but somehow other things have taken over. Maybe this blog hop will get us all back into it...you never know!
