Anyway to the crafting, I have something completely new to show you all today. Some of you will have heard about a cross stitch design company called Soda Stitch. I have only recently discovered them through an amazing WIP by Mii of Mii Stitch, if you haven’t seen Mii’s work check it out, she is fantastic. Anyway I asked her how easy the charts were to follow and she very kindly sent me an email assuring me that they were simple, so I recently decided to give them a go.

Next came the problem of deciding which one to start! I finally picked Harvest of Love and put in the first stitches, and I become completely hooked. These charts are so much fun. They are really clear and have listed DMC, Anchor and Yeidam (which I have never heard of). They are printed nice and big, so are very simple to follow and there are lots of sections of block stitching, so they stitch up very quickly. The back stitching looks fairly straight forward and I can’t wait to get some time on this over the holidays and maybe even get it finished.
