    If this is not too cheeky could you possibly send me the charts. I have some tatty teddy ones if u want to swap.

    I love cross stitch but since becoming pregnant I have lost my concentration :( But hope to chat to you lovely people about cross stitch :thumbup:

    I'm still working on the blue-tits/flowers/watering-can project, I'm only about 1/4 of the way through but it's starting to take shape already :)

    That looks great!!

    The one I have is just plain old simple cross stitch, maybe when I am done I can post it and you can help me add some other stitches around it to make it look a bit better?

    Oooo just thought I'd pop over and say :hi:

    I used to do cross stitching when I was pregnant with Caitlin and have done it on and off since. I did start doing the portraits and the large pics of the Disney Princess' for Caitlins' room but I kept getting bored :blush:

    Hoping to get back into it now :) xx

    Hi guys!!! I love cross stitch but haven't done one for ages!! The only one i have done is a birth sampler for Charlie and then he was born early and I didn't finish and now it's lost :-( Think I will start another one though! x

    I'm on cross stitch at the moment too. Making a couple if small gifts for some friends then a birth sampler for Indigo after which I'll be able to get back to my cranes embroidery I started before getting pregnant. For some reason I can't sew when I'm pregnant!

    Hi girls! I know this thread hasn't been updated in a while, but I didn't want to make a new one.

    I only recently got into cross stitching, and I love it. I got Cross Stitcher magazine and there are so many Christmas designs I want to do, I don't know where to start! The magazine had a free mini cross stitch kit with some patterns, so I've been keeping busy with those. They're Chrismas baubles. :)

    I hope we can revive this thread!

    I have just ordered the Aida and threads to do this HUG into a cushion :flower:

    Well, I'm currently doing the three baubles below (in the pic, they're on the left).

    https://crossstitcher.themakingspot.com/sites/crossstitcher.themakingspot.com/files/resize/inline_images/246_downloads-590x274.png

    But next, I think I'll do these retro baubles in the same magazine:

    https://crossstitcher.themakingspot.com/sites/crossstitcher.themakingspot.com/files/resize/inline_images/246.baubles-590x278.jpg

    I've got the perfect place to hang them in our lounge. :D
