This book shelf style Christmas tree is great fun, you can use the shelves to hold gifts, only issue would be storing it when it’s not the holiday season.

Cross stich is very relaxing I have made this cute little bird in approximately 1hr while chatting at a family BBQ. I think I will be making it into a christmas decoration so it will sit around on my desk for a lot longer until I get more into the Christmas spirit only 10months to go.

Another op shop buy the Serenity Prayer a classic saying which will never grow old. The flowers date the peice a little but I like the vintage touch. I haven’t decided where it will live yet.

This is the start of my first quote inspired by the serenity prayer. I am very supprised with how long this one is taking. I have lost 2 needles and am using a tiny little frame so i have to move it after every letter almost(*Note to self buy cross stich needles). You may never see the end of the quote at the speed this is being completed. 

Tips on cross stich:
1. Always use a frame to make the finished product more even.
2. If you are transporting the cross stich to get it completed have a secure container so you don’t loose needles
3. Use short peices to reduce tangling the thread about your arms length.
