The night before last I spent folding origami Christmas trees from the pages of an old, browned book. I will attach them to string and use them to decorate around the office for Christmas.
My new project is from a book called Sand, Sea and Cross Stitch by Anna Field. I found some sand coloured canvas in my stash and decided to do a row of beach-side houses on it. It is only 10 count so the design will be much bigger than the original, but that is OK. I want to stitch several of the patterns in the book for our beach holiday house - they will fit in perfectly.
I got most of the first house done, using 3 strands of thread to fill in the bigger than usual holes.
