Last bits of Christmas...

Well another year over- hope you all had a lovely Christmas. Just thought I'd post some bits I didn't have time to post before the holidays...
These were all designed for Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine last year for their Christmas Issues which I'm afraid have been and gone already, but you can purchase back copies here or you can subscribe to the mag here.
First were a large set of Christmas characters and animals, some of which I have shown as original illustrations below. These were converted into cross stitch makes for a covergift with Issue 143. Leonie at Fireflies & Cats in the Garden was kind enough to blog about this set, and had a go at making up one of the cats- and I think she did a brill job!
Each set of characters came with a matching card making paper, tag, border and several greetings to stitch.

I also designed a 'Christmas pudding' pattern, card and stitch greeting for a card making kit which came free with the mag...

  1. Hi Jenny. Oh wow, thank you for your lovely comment (and the link to my blog post); I'm so glad that you liked what I did with Xmas moggy - I couldn't have done it without you :-). The original designs are so bright and colourful - just love them!

    I love the Christmas Pud! I have just bought the mag (we get them about 2 months late here in Australia) and the pud is sitting in my pile to stitch ready for 2011 Xmas!

    Can't wait to see what's next! Thank you again for your comment :-)

    All the best
