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.

Sunny Update

October 15, 2010 Nikki

Catching Up

October 10, 2010 Nikki

This week I have been catching up on the few days that I missed of the Heaven and Earth Designs stitchalong.  I delayed starting because I was so close to finishing Faces of Faery 70.  Now I’ve nearly finished page […]
