Hobbycraft Mini Cross Stitch Kits

Hobbycraft Mini Cross Stitch Kits of penguin and scottie dog

After completing a mini cross stitch pattern my mum gave to me, from 1993, I got the itch to do more. 

Cross stitch was never a craft that called out to me, but sitting with a needle in my hand felt natural and comfortable so I concluded that maybe cross stitch has worked it's way to my heart at last.

Starting small scale is ideal for learning a new craft so I hobbled down to Hobbycraft and picked up some mini cross stitch kits to make and add to my tiny collection.

There's loads of designs to choose from, but the patterns I chose were the Mouseloft Scottie Dog and the Mouseloft Penguin. These choices were made purely because they're my mum's favourite animals. She gave me a pattern of a duck ( one of my favourite animals ) so I've picked up two to return the favour. Only fair right? 

The patterns are super easy to follow but I think they're easier to complete when attached to a hoop, just stops you getting as much cramp in your hand from holding the aida fabric taut.
