Hello and welcome to the 2021 Cross Stitch and Craft Cafe,
Our aim is to share our gorgeous and unique makes, whether they be stitched, knitted, crocheted, felted - whatever takes your fancy really. We'd love to have your company on our crafty journey throughout 2021. Please feel free to pull up a chair, grab a drink and share your makes. Photos of what you're working on are always appreciated  :)
My list of makes for 2021 to follow.

    Hi all,
    My 2021 list of makes is:
    1. HSC Reindeer sampler
    2. Pretty Little Paris
    3. Chicory Fairy - started 19.12.20
    Will add to this list as I go along. Items 1 and 2 I only have the chart, so may need to source threads/fabric.
    What is everyone else making this year?
    Coxy xx

    Could I join in please? My main aim is to complete a cross stitch picture for my sister. It's a photo to chart kit and very complicated. I started it for her 50th birthday (long passed) and will be lucky if I finish it for her 60th at this rate. 
    When I have made some progress (enough to keep me motivated) I have some stumpwork projects that I'd like to try. I also have probably 20 or so unfinished embroidery projects (plus knitting and dressmaking). Some just want blocking and framing so I'll do a few at a time.

    Hi and welcome Luciecat63 - lovely to meet you. You sound like you have lots to keep you busy. Please do post photos when you can - it's great to look back and see your progress. I did an introduction to stumpwork day course at the Royal School of Needlework in 2018 - it was a lovely day. We covered a lot of different techniques on the day and finished off our project at our leisure. Will post a photo when I have time. 
    Just did the food shop at A!di and got some party nibbles for tonight - no cooking needed - huzzah!
    Happy new year everyone. Stay safe and keep well.
