I fell in love

It's not fair and I'm sure you will agree with me. I didn't have time (yet) to stitch the last year Chirstmas Dimensions kits that I bought that the company is already releasing new kits. And of course, I them. I'm sooooooo weak, it's pathetic ... I didn't buy anything ( yet) because I'm still on my diet ( see yesterday post ... )
Here are some of my favorite:

Look at this tender picture, isn't it adorable? :
And Santa ( I know, I know, I have a thing with Santa ... is it the red outfit? a secret crush? the big bag full of gifts that he always bring with him? ) , isn't it a great Santa picture?
And I love those birds:
And the stocking: too cute !!!
I also like Stony Creek and they just release a Christmas village:
Really, a stitcher's life is not easy. HOW are we supposed to resist temptation? If you have the answer , drop me a line !

And now I'm going to spoil you with another progress picture !!! I know! you 're not going to believe it : I do stitch everyday again !!!

Glad to hear that you are stitching everyday again.
The charts are wonderful I love the Santa and the sweet little girl with the snowman!
Great progress on your stitching!

Brigitte said...

Great to see that you are stitching again and that your current WIP is in good progress.
And yes, I feel the temptation myself, lol. And although I'm on a sort of stash diet, too, I sometimes have to give in. And why not, lol. The pieces you are tempted by look so great. I'm also a big fan of Stoney Creek and have a couple of their books in my stash. I think I should pull them out again and look for a new project (not that I need one, lol).
Your garden will look so nice with all the new flowers you planted. Here everything is on a hold as we haven't seen the sun for weeks and it's rather cold. Hopefully it will get warmer soon so that the lilacs can start to bloom.

I agree these designs are really lovely and hard to resist.

Nice progress on your stitching.

Justflo said...

OMG!!! Those are lovely kits. We definitely have the same taste. Those 2 dimensions kits are on my wishlist too ;) It's nice to have the same taste.

Nice progress on your stitching too. Those are lovely designs as well.

PS : I'll sent you a email soon, so I can answer your question about the Thomas Kinkade chart ;)

Nancy M said...

Why are some of their cutest things in kits?? I just finished the 2nd ornament from a kit. They have so much detail. I love the village one, but I'm a sucker for houses!! Nice progress on your piece too!
