Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to everyone! I know it's a bit late, but better late than never! I have 11 days off work, so I have managed to get a lot of stitching done and lots of biking. Anyway here are some updated pictures of Handmade, with Love, which I have nearly finished but I have run out of a couple of thread colours which I will get in the next couple of days.
Here is also an update on the Carousel Horse by Teresa Wentzler. I now have finished unpicking the old threads in the horses neck and I have redone 2 of the colours.

I have also started doing some of the back stitching on the tail, a start of many hours of back stitching!

Because this cross stitch is my oldest WIP, I am trying very hard to get it finished. It may not look like it, but I don't like unfinished things! So I am trying very hard to get this finished in 2012 - there, thats my first new years resolution!

Here is another WIP I would like to get finished in 2012, and this one is a wonderful Chatelaine design called "Tuscany Town Mandala"

It is a very large piece and I am probably 3/4 finished with the stitching, but it has tons of beads to attach, so that will take the most time.

I have also taken some pictures of some lovely fabric that I brought of Trade Me (like ebay) as you can see I have a bit of a love of France and all things Paris

 This next fabric isn't paris, but I do like it all the same. I'm not sure what I'm going to make with the fabric, but one day I will make someting out of it!

A big thank you Measi who posted a comment on my blog, please to know somebody reads it! I anybody does have a look please leave a comment so at least I know someone is actually reading it!
