Here we are again! The weeks do go by fast, but here is my Friday freebie of a folk art style angel. I think by now we are begining to really see how my Christmas sampler will look. Thanks again for all of your lovely pictures of how you are getting along.

Tilly is now 9 weeks old and a bundle of energy; not phased by anything it seems. The vet said it's because she has been bred from good 'working stock' ......perhaps he is right.

Just in case you don't follow my Face Book page, I am showing this stitched design of my seahorse by Brenda Allan here this week. This chart can be found in World of Cross stitching 259 or it will become available, if you can't get hold of a copy, from my Shop page around February 2018.
What I like is that Brenda has 'done her own thing!' without compromising my design.
She stitched it on 14 count white Aida and to keep...
Remember each Friday there is a new Christmas motif for you to download. This week it is the gorgeous poinsettia.
