Whilst I was feeling sorry for myself in a cloud of influenza last week I found it difficult and uncomfortable to get any knitting done. I was getting frustrated with anything cumbersome or difficult to manipulate, so I turned tot he smallest and most portable of little projects, some little cross stitch motifs.
The second little Christmas-themed project I stitched was from another little project kit included with a past issue of Cross Stitcher magazine (their 'Christmas' themed issues seemed to run over about five months, so Christmas and cross stitch must be particularly well suited.)
These two little fancy pieces have been put into the growing box of Christmas delights to adorn cards or be hung up around the house at the end of the year. First there is spring and summer to enjoy, and now that I am feeling better, more knitting to be done!
