Cross Stitch Crazy 198 - Happy New Year!

Oh, dear... it`s been a while again, hasn`t it? In my defence, I started to work on a mega-BAP around the middle of October and only just finished it today - so this one project covered pretty much my whole autumn. Next thing I know, we`re all concentrating on Christmas, buying cards and preparing for the school fair - where has this year gone?!? Oh, and just to top it all: the latest Crazy is in the shops now, including my New Year cards - yep, Hello, 2015! (Gosh, how weird is that to type??)
These 7 funky little cards were designed by Jody Rice of Satsuma Street fame - if you haven`t heard of her or haven`t seen her Etsy shop yet, you can find out more from this interview with Jody on cross-stitching-dot-com.
Talking of cards: remember how throughout the summer I was stitching Christmas designs? Now I`m working on Fathers` Day cards... is it any wonder that I never know what day of the week it is?!? :)
My usual badly lit photo...

... and how they appear in the magazine...

... all made up into pretty little cards :)

    It's not New Year's yet - it's Thanksgiving tomorrow... Don't scare me like that. )))
    With stitching, you are always ahead of the calendar...
    Happy stitching!

  4. Thanks, Violka, they were lovely little cards to stitch, I enjoyed all of them - the glasses because they`re blue, my favourite colour, or the CELEBRATE one, because it reminded me of Bassetts Allsorts... But my favourite one is the clock face: doesn`t he look like the Monopoly Man? :)
