A basket with Christmas gifts for my family.

Here is the basket with the little pincushions, which I stitched as gifts for me and my family.
This little angel in the clouds is from Heart in Hand. It's stitched on 36 count linen using the recommended threads except her dress. I used Raspberry parfait instead of Antique Rose because I think the coulour fits better with the linen.

These two pincushions are for my daughter and son in law because they got their two kittens before Christmas. Because the kittens are white I change the colour of the cats in white. This one is stitched with DMC threads using some beads and button. The chart was pusblished in JCS ornaments 2009
This cat is stitched with Whisper. For both works I used 36 count Zweigart linen. The charts are from Brittercup Designs.
Look at this cute chart from Angel Stitchin called Santa's Buddie from JCS ornaments 2009.
Stitched on Zweigart linen using GA Wool, Crescent Colour and DMC with some beads and button.

Diane Williams designs this chart especially for Unicef project. The money is being used to provide clean drinking water to 300 children in West Africa. The cushion is stitched on 36 count Zweigart linen using the recommended threads.
Now the basket is empty waiting for the next stitchingpieces. Have a nice sunday and thanks for your comments, I really appreciate them.
