In The Frame

Two weeks ago, I started a new counted cross stitch.  This one is from the Craft Collection and is called Christmas Robin.  I’ve had this kit for more years than I care to mention and it has been on my ‘to do’ list of craft projects, so it is good to finally have it in the frame.

I was attracted to this design because it features my favourite bird and it also features a church, which reminds me of a one in a village outside Harrogate, where I used to live.

I’ve enjoyed working on this in the evening and it is lovely to have a size which is easier to handle than the huge seaside cross stitch, which I finished in the summer of 2016.  Now that the robin is in place, the design is starting to take shape.


  1. VERY sweet, Marie! A pretty like bit of far away home in your home now. :) I really enjoy cross stitch, but rarely get to it. You don't see much cross stitch here nowadays, sadly. My local yarn store, some many years back, used to stock cross stitch and small tapestry kits, but they don't anymore. I'll have to look online! Happy Stitching! ((HUGS))

  2. It is a sweet little kit and I’m really enjoying it. It has been quite a while since I started a new piece, so I’m happy to finally have this to work on. Marie x

  3. Such a sweet little robin, I bet you smile every time you pick up the frame to start stitching:)

    1. I certainly do, Rosie. It is such fun to work on this design. Marie x
