Last year I reacquainted myself with counted cross stitch. It had been years...but I fell in love with it all over. So this year, I signed on for Stitching Lotus's small SAL (Stitch A Long), and I am delighted to say that I have completed my January project.
Here he is...
He was originally designed for plastic canvas, but as you can see
Aida cloth works great too!
I found this little guy while surfing Pinterest.
This one from Just Cross Stitch can be found right
He found his home, on my new fabric basket.
Connie over at Free Motion By the River
has a fabulous tutorial on these.
You can find that right HERE
These baskets are just the cutest and easiest things to make.
So versatile and so easy to make in different sizes.
This one actually holds those square boxes of Kleenex,
or tissues I guess we should say!
Thanks Heather, for inspiring me to join in on your SAL this year.
I am looking forward to 11 more mini projects!
Whoo hoo, I might even get an early start on my Christmas gifts this year!
Thanks for stopping by and make sure you visit my fellow stitchers!
You can find links for their projects right
Heck while your there, join in with us...
The year is young!
