Two Thirds a Fun Gift and a Happy Christmas.

 The Third Cushion

I didn't go as far as I had planned as far as these cushions are concerned but I think three is a fair number for this year.

The plan for these was to put them in the Library Christmas Raffle the proceeds of which goes to the Air Ambulance, this didn't take place this year because of Covid but I'm sure it will resume next year.

They will be carefully packed away until next Christmas, I may even add to their numbers between now and then because they are really fun to make. 

These cushions are crocheted using the Mosaic Crochet technique and I have used panels taken from Letitcia's Holiday Blanket Pattern.

There were so many other Christmas patterns I wanted to try out too but as always time has run out for this Christmas I must make an earlier start next year.

The Third Day

I am right on track with my Twelve Days of Christmas Sampler

Or almost, I'm sure some of you will see the mistake I have made in the sewing of this, I will carefully remove the affected part and stitch it again. If you can't see the mistake then there's a puzzle for you Spot the mistake😃 

A Fun Gift

What a lovely surprise! a huge than you to Jo from Through The Keyhole who sent me this rather lovely box packed with these little packages

It was sent as a thank you for joining her in the Sewing of the Twelve Days of Christmas Sampler, I should be thanking you Jo for drawing my attention to this and rekindling my love of cross stitch. 

There are twelve bags one to be opened on each of the twelve days of Christmas starting on Christmas day, each bag contains a mini skein of yarn to be used in a scrappy project.  Isn't that a fun and thoughtful thing to do? Thanks again Jo I am really touched.

And Finally 

I hope you all have a safe and a very Merry Christmas. xxx

  4. Merry Christmas Linda, hope you have a lovely time xx

  5. Your new cushion is gorgeous, but then, all three are. I love that you are donating these pretties to such a worthy organisation. I confess, I cannot spot the little mistake. Love those pretty packages Jo sent you. How fun to open one each day. I hope you enjoy a lovely Christmas, Linda even though things over there are not like they are for previous Christmases. See you in the new year. Xx

  6. Lots of gorgeous makes here Linda The cushions are fabulous. I really cant see the mistakes you say you made in the sampler :-) Have a wonderful Christmas Linda xx Amanda x

  7. Your cushions are lovely Linda and I am looking forward to seeing how many more your produce before next Christmas! I confess I can't see the mistake either - unless it is just that one French hen is facing the other way? And how do we know these hens are really French? hahaha. Have a wonderful Christmas xxx

  8. Such a lovely gift to receive, can't wait to see what you make with them all. Merry Christmas to you, hoping that the light at the end of the tunnel gets brighter and brighter in 2021.

  9. Merry Christmas dear Linda, stay safe.

  10. Love your crochet cushions and the twelve days of Christmas sampler looks brilliant. I think I can see the mistake (2 green stitches), you could totally get away without fixing it, but I understand that when you make a mistake once you notice it you can’t stop seeing it and I’d have to correct it too!
    Found you whilst blog hopping, be lovely to see you over at mine at

  11. Merry Christmas, Linda! The cushions are lovely, and the cross stitch is delightful.

  12. Belated Happy Christmas Wishes, and my good wishes for the New Year too.

    All the best Jan

  13. I think three pillows is impressive. And they are all beautiful, Linda. :)

  14. The cushions are fantastic, Linda, I couldn't believe they were crochet to begin with. I have to look into this mosaic technique. And Jo's gift is brilliant as well - I like presents that inspire creativity. Happy New Year!

  15. These cushions look amazing!!! Happy New Year!
