About Me

Welcome to my blog.

My name is Ray and for many years I have enjoyed cross-stitch embroidery, in particular I enjoy embroidering magical and mythical designs.

I confess that I am a rather reluctant blogger but I have recently been invited to be a guest member of the Crafty Boots Design Team. It is a great honour to be invited to work with this very talented team and I thank them for this opportunity.

Why not check-out this amazing team of designers for yourself and hop across to the Crafty Boots Challenge blog.

Please leave your comments and let me know what you think of my work.

Winnie the Pooh Birth Sampler

As well as stitching magical and mythical designs I also make the occasional Winnie the Pooh picture for my nieces and nephews.  It's funny, they never ask for anything else, but as they are fun to stitch I really do not mind.  

I recently made this birth sampler for my first great nephew.  (For obvious reasons I have blanked out his personal details.)

This design came in the form of a kit, it contained the aida and all the thread I needed, they even give you a needle.  It was quick and simple to make and a good way for someone who has never cross stitched before to have a go.
