I have started...

It's been about 10 years since I have done any cross stitch, other stitching projects have taken over... I am really enjoying  the January cottage, here are my first few pictures!

Do you like my little owl scissor keeper?
He keeps me company as I stitch, Happy Stitching all!


  1. Glad that you found your way back to cross stitch. Your start looks lovely.

  2. Hope you have fun back in the world of x stitch. This is a perfect return project.


    1. Thank you, I am enjoying it again...
