We did not fall of the end of the Earth.

Hi there, yes it has been long time, we did not fall of the end of the Earth but we where very busy making
Slate  Frames for Beating Around The Bush. And we have just caught up with all our back orders.
You can also get our Slate Frames from The Embroidery Den, Highett Victoria Tel. 03 9532 2142 .
We have also last received the NBN, the Internet is just so much faster, some times one just has to wait
for small luxuries  like this.
Well have almost finished with weeding the garden, hopefully there will be time to do some embroidery
I am thinking of maybe some bead embroidery,but I am still looking for the right piece.




This is all for know, we hope that everyone is busy embroidering as Christmas is only 10 weeks away,

Colour in our Life

Well I have been busy,  but not with embroidering but with crochtering myself a new jumper for winter.
As winter is just around the corner, I know  our winters are nothing like the Northen hemisphere, but when those winds come
of the Southern ocean you will certainly know about it. 
As you can see it is in my favourite colour. We all have favourite colours, we use them all the time whether
it is in our cloths, embroidery or around our home. That is why when we look in our thread stash we always
pick similar colours, colours make us feel good because they are part of who we are.
So keep on using your special colours.

















This shall be all for today, happy stitching from all of us here at Christina's Craft and Gifts.

Happy New Year to one and all

Happy New Year to one and all. Have' nt done much and January is almost gone. For those in the Northern Hemisphere stitching away at their embroidery, sitting in front of a nice warm fire,














 we have it slightly different here in the Southern Hemisphere where it is slightly warmer. Today will be 37 C, tomorrow and Friday will be 41 C and Saturday we'll have a cool change of 33 C. Although its January and we have the Tour Down Under going, Mad March seems like its just around the corner with all of its festivals and other such things, next thing we'll know its Easter and where has the beginning of the year gone and not a stitch has been done.













That's all for now.

Happy Stitching from all of us at Christina's Craft and Gifts
