About Nikki

A crafter of many years, now using this blog to share my ongoing projects and tips for others to enjoy. I mainly concentrate now on Heaven and Earth cross stitch designs - with several projects on the go at any one time. Also often found knitting shawls and socks, papercrafting. Easily distracted by new cross stitch patterns. Slave to a tyrannical black n white cat called Yuen.

As usual, when the finish is in sight I manage to power through the last couple of pages in double quick time. Originally I wanted to get it finished by the end of the year but then the Christmas Day […]
