Another completed craft project - mini Christmas cross stitch kit

I know that Christmas is a long way away yet, but in my unfinished craft project pile I have a number of Christmas related crafts. Carrying on with my intention to complete an unfinished project each month this year, for the month of April I present my Christmas mini cross stitch kit!

I bought this kit in Hobbycraft a couple of years ago. Hobbycraft sell a lot of mini cross stitch kits, and they are usually temptingly placed in crates alongside the checkout, reasonably priced and often additionally as part of a three for two deal. When stitched they measure about 8cm across, so they are a good size to use in a card. This design features some woolly mittens inside a festive wreath.

I have a few of these completed cross stitch pictures, and I never know what to do with them when they are completed. So I decided to buy a frame for it and mount the cross stitch onto some felt for a background. I stitched around it with some of the leftover pink thread from the kit. I'll put it away now until Christmas, and then I'm looking forward to displaying it along with my larger Christmas cross stitch sampler.

This was a very quick project, but don't worry I've still been continuing my crafting on other projects! I've just started a new diamond painting which is very large - it depicts Starry Night by Van Gogh and may well feature later this year as one of my unfinished projects. I'm also working very hard on my cross stitch map. I've made a huge amount of progress since the picture below and I'm very excited to share it with you when I've done a bit more to it!
