I do love free Christmas kits in my crafty magazines, but to be honest, they do tend to repeat a lot. Lots of little cards, or gift tags, and I end up with a lot of them just waiting to be made (one day!).
However, this month with Cross Stitcher I got this lovely little hoop ornament kit, which was a nice change!
This was a stitch on soluble canvas job, which always makes me a bit nervous, as I have to wash my stitching, but it all turned out fine. You were supposed to glue the ribbon on the hoop in a bow, but I decided to use it as a loop so that I could hang it on my tree.
