My Easter Cross Stitch 2016

Happy Easter Monday, everyone!

I hope you're all having a good one. I've had a lazy day watching The Sound of Music, playing with the puppy, eating left over trifle and turkey sandwiches, and napping- I'm so shattered! The last couple of days have really taken it out of me.

I'll be sharing a few snippets from my Easter weekend tomorrow, when I'll hopefully feel a little more alive, but for now I just wanted to quickly share my Easter cross stitch with you guys, before Easter is over for another year.

I made this cross stitch early last year, but I don't think I ever blogged about it in much detail.

I bought the cross stitch kit from a small Cornish brand called Riverdrift House, who I usually go to for new cross stitch kits because their designs are so pretty, easy to follow, and very affordable, too. I think I'm already on my 6th picture. I mostly stick to Christmas cross stitches, but I couldn't resist picking up this Happy Easter kit because it was so cute and colourful, and I wanted to branch out and try something new. I didn't enjoy working on it as much as the Christmas ones I've made, but it was fun stitching pastel coloured Easter eggs, cats, hearts, and butterflies for a while. I'm really pleased with the end result and I have to admit it came out well. It only took me around six weeks to finish it, (mostly by doing an hour or so a day) and I don't think I even made any mistakes, which is unusual for me! I usually get a few stitches wrong somewhere.

Predictably, I still haven't managed to get the picture framed yet, even though it's been over a year since I finished it. I never seem to get round to framing stuff, and I'm not sure why. Maybe I'll get my act together and have it framed in time for next Easter! (Yeah, right!) I'm a stitcher, not a framer!

If you want to give this cross stitch a go, you can find the kit here for £10.95. You can find the full range of Riverdrift House cross stitch kits over on their website and on Amazon, too.

Do you enjoy cross stitching in your spare time?
