Some Of Our Handmade Cross-Stitch Christmas Gifts This Year



You may have noticed in my last few Linda's Blog posts that I've been on a cross-stitch kick this year.  In fact, I think I've been on it now for close to three years. 

Just recently I finished an enormous Dimensions Gold Collection Victorian cross-stitch kit and wrote about it on a Linda's Blog post entitled "You Spent How Many Hours On That Cross-Stitch?" and wrote about it on a "The Book Review Corner" blog post entitled "Linda's Review of M'Lady's Chateau - Dimensions Gold Collection Cross-Stitch Kit." 

I have been a fan of the Dimensions cross-stitch for quite some time and have written about them several times on my The Book Review Corner blog before. There was the Christmas In The Adirondacks Cross-Stitch Kit From Dimensions The Gold Collectionreview, my Christmas Village Ornaments Cross-Stitch Kit by Dimensions The Gold Collection Kit #8785 review, and my Colorful Rooster Cross-Stitch Kit #7195 From Dimensions review. 

Back in June I had written a "The Book Review Corner" blog post entitled Cross-Stitch Kits I Bought This Spring" where I told you about several cross-stitch kits I had bought and was hoping to finish this year. 

Well, I finished several - two of which were woodland landscape scenes and which are shown in the pictures at the beginning of this post and below: 


They were made based upon the following Dimension Gold Collection cross-stitch kits: 




Dimensions Moonlit Cabin Counted Cross-Stitch Kit


Gold Collection Petite Morning Lake Counted Cross-Stitch Kit


I had bought these two because they were different from all the other cross-stitch kits I had seen. They were woodland and I knew some of my relatives would just love the pictures. 

I ended up giving the Dimensions Moonlit Cabin Counted Cross-Stitch ( shown at the beginning of this post) picture I had finished to my younger brother as a Christmas present his year. You know, the one with the amazing workshop.  Well, he and his wide just loved it and were amazed at the detail within the picture and how it had a three dimensional aspect to it. 

The Gold Collection Petite Morning Lake Counted Cross-Stitch (2nd picture in this post) picture I finished I decided to keep for hubby and I and have it hanging next to our desk in our kitchen. It looks wonderful there and I, too, am amazed at the detail within the picture and it's three dimensional affect every time I look at it. 

I was hoping to finish more of the cross-stitch kits I had bought this Spring but just ran out of time. 

Oh, well! There's always next year! 

In my opinion,  it's never too early to start on Christmas presents. 

In fact, I already have a few gifts in mind! 

Hmm........ Do you think they'll be cross-stitch gifts? 

They'd better be with the number of kits I've bought and haven't completed as of yet.
