I've decided to start with a natural background, using a stretched canvas and ribbons, I came across in my stock tidy, and some gorgeous threads I picked up at the Glasgow Craft Mafia Give Craft Make yesterday.
I've drawn a sketch of my idea, part of a Christmas Tree with Christmas Tags, that I'm hoping to make as part of my collection.
It's not the clearest of sketches but as long as I know what I'm doing, kind of, it'll all be good.
So I'm going to get to refining that sketch and actually putting some thread and ribbon through canvas.
I've got a little giveaway going on this week - a nice cross stitch pack - have a look.
I'm really enjoying making a regular contribution to Handmade Monday and seeing all the great work that's out there.
