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.

Tiger Lillies


I hope you have had a good weekend.

I do not post very often, simply because it takes me a while to complete a cross stitch, but today is the first day for a new challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges and I wanted to be part of this particular challenge because, for the next two weeks the challenge is to use fabric in your project.

I just had to take up this challenge and so I have produced a small cross stitch share with you.

It was the vibrant colours of these flowers which first attracted me to this kit.  The design is stitched on 14 count aida.

Since my last post the Crafty Boots Design Team has four new members:


Please make a point of visiting the Crafty Boots Challenges site to see their projects.
