Rapunzel - Cross Stitch Crazy 200

Happy New Year! I know it`s almost the end of January but this is my first blog post for 2015 - I know, they`re becoming increasingly few and far between. Even though I`m constantly crafting something, it`s either a surprise to someone or some official magazine thingy but the end result`s the same: I can`t post pictures until the recipient has got the prezzie or a publication is in the shops.
So in the past weeks (months?) I`ve knitted e.g. a jumper - but I`m pretty sure the owner of it wouldn`t like his picture all over the Internet -, and over Christmas I stitched a glasses case for my Mum for her birthday - but as she can`t see it before the end of February, I cannot post a piccie of that, either. However, as my parents have already received it, I can finally show you the Lucie Heaton cuckoo clock I stitched for them from issue 284 of Cross Stitcher:

I stretched it over a ready-made canvas I`d bought in an arts shop but as my Mom wants to put it in the kitchen, it`s still an ongoing project, now in my Uncle`s capable hands, who`ll box it in (probably with glass, he didn`t sound too keen on plexiglass) to protect it from greasy fumes.
I had another `emergency project` over the holidays: my adorable wee boy dreamt one night that his two favourite teddies have met and become friends with a green alien teddy - cue a trip to the shop to find the perfect shade of `alien green` yarn, and I had to knit this bear for him the very same day, following his instructions to the letter (hence the slightly "giraffesque" antennae):

And finally, the latest issue of Crazy is out and in it another Lucie Heaton design I stitched. I`m sure little girls all over the world will love this Tangled-themed picture - I certainly enjoyed stitching it!


See you again "soon" - hopefully, before the end of 2015, lol!

    1. Thanks, Katya, it was a fun pattern to work on and a very quick stitch, so I enjoyed it a lot in-between larger projects. It does look a bit Bothy Thread-ish, doesn`t it, with an oh-so Lucie Heaton cute little mouse, hehe :)
