Christmas gift ideas for mini-stitchers (whether that’s you, or a friend!)

It’s coming round to the time of year when maybe you could do with some Christmas gift ideas for mini-stitchers  – if you love to stitch for your dollhouse, or know someone else who does, then here’s some suggestions from my range of dollhouse needlepoint kits.

How about a matching Pole screen and Firescreen set, like these two (‘Spring Flowers’ and ‘Summer Roses’), below? Each kit is available separately, but together they really add something special. Both are to be stitched on silk gauze – the Firescreen kits (on 32 count gauze) are £21.95 each, and the Pole screen kits (some on 40 and some on 32 count gauze, depending on the design) are £20.95 each. Both types of kit contain everything you need, including the metal frame kit or wooden pole kit.

Sampler kits make good stocking fillers, at only £10.95. There are 12 designs to choose from, on 28 or 32 count evenweave, and each kit already contains the wooden frame, as well as all other materials.

Teacosy kits (on 32 count silk gauze, at  £14.95), Tray cloth kits (on 32 count silk gauze, at £12.95) and Cushion kits (on 22 count canvas, at £5.95) make great stocking fillers!

For a gift for a more experienced stitcher, this Needlework stand kit on 40 count silk gauze (£21.95) would be good – there are six designs to choose from. This one is called ‘Larkspur and Roses’.

And then for little stocking stuffer gifts, there are these lovely magnetic needle minders! Perfect little gifts for stitchers, even if they don’t have a dollhouse to stitch for – because who wants to lose their needle? These little accessories will help keep needles safe, while looking gorgeous alongside your stitching. £4.95 each.

Here we are at Christmas again!

Well, this year has certainly flown by, and here we are at Christmas again. I don’t know about you, but I still find I don’t get enough time to do my stitching.

I am going to try a new approach in 2019 – I’m going to make a list at the beginning of January, of the projects I *realistically* think I can get done during the year, and then focus on enjoying the making of those, without worrying about the ENORMOUS stash of projects I’ve yet to start. It’s supposed to be fun, right?!

How about you? Do you have a plan? Or do you just take it as it comes?

However you approach your stitching hobby, I hope you continue to have fun with whatever you make.

Thanks so much for following along with me during 2018 (most of it being the Strawberry Fayre Heart Etui, which is now finished and sitting nestled in my Edwardian china cabinet, along with my other stitched goodies).

I hope you have a great Christmas, and a peaceful New Year.

Christmas wishes to all my blog readers!!

I’d like to wish all my blog readers a very happy Christmas, filled with lots of stitchy goodies (and chocolate)!

I hope you all manage to find some time for yourselves among all the mayhem – women generally tend to get a raw deal over Christmas, while making the festive season great for everyone else – so, take some time out, and do whatever makes you happy  🙂

I’m really grateful for all those of you who have followed my blog, especially those of you who comment on my posts, as I love to have conversations with you and find out what you think!!

This year has not been the easiest for me, due to the ill-health of my husband, and some personal difficulties – but I am looking forward to the New Year, when I’ve got some really good things planned for the blog, including the wonderful Carolyn Pearce Strawberry Fayre etui stitch-along, which will hopefully start in January 2018.

Have a great Christmas!
