Happy New Year - I hope 2015 brings you all you could wish for. Right now, it's the first Saturday share of the year from the designers on Facebook's Cross Stitch Showcase and, as it's been a while since the last one, I thought I'd share a couple that feature some of my favourite themes.

It's been a quiet week on the Cross Stitch Showcase this week. Partly it's the run-up to Christmas when we all get busy and partly it's because so many of us are worried about VATMOSS. But there were still loads of lovely designs to stitch from!.

I love the idea behind this week's Saturday Share - in fact, among my working sketches is my own take on the theme.

Christmas stitching is a difficult one - large designs should probably have been started months ago and it feels a little too early to be stitching small designs. So,,, even though I was very tempted, I've resisted the urge to post a Christmas design this week - I have a little plan in mind for a couple of weeks' time.

Time for the Saturday Share once again - this week has flown by and that sense of time flying by is what inspired me to make this week's choice..

This week's themes on Cross Stitch Showcase were based on songs - and it's always interesting seeing who can come up with the most interesting interpretation.

This week's themes were the abstract nouns of hope, peace, joy, faith and love. It was interesting to see what the designers made of them.

When the themes for the Facebook page Cross Stitch Showcase feature words like 'dragon' and 'flowers' I give a mental groan because I know it's going to be practically impossible to pick just one design to share. But I was wrong - because this week it was easy.

I'm hoping that my Saturday Share posts are showing what can be done with cross stitch for anyone who thinks it's a hobby for old ladies who like to stitch flowers. This week's share couldn't be further away from that picture!.

This week's Saturday Share had me 'feline' confused until I solved the problem by picking two of the designs on Cross Stitch Showcase.

There are some weeks where I see a design and just know it has to be shared... this is one of those weeks.

To make up for the fact I haven't been updating this blog nearly as often as I intended to (the day job keeps interfering...) I thought I'd post three designs this week. It still hasn't been easy to choose though!

Loads of stunning designs on Cross Stitch Showcase this week and I had a really hard time choosing something - I'm sure I have this problem every other week!

Clearly, my memory is not what it was. I could have sworn I did this yesterday, I definitely sat down at the computer to do it so I obviously got sidetracked along the way... on the premise better late than never, here's this week's Saturday Share.

There was one design the the Facebook page Cross Stitch Showcase that wowed me this week. If I weren't so busy with my own designs this one would have made it to my stash pile.

When one of the week's themes on the Facebook page Cross Stitch Showcase is flowers I always groan because I know it will be really difficult to choose just one design to share.

Another week where it's been difficult to reduce the number of gorgeous patterns out there down to just one but here goes...

One of the things I love about cross stitch - and art in general - is how one word can be interpreted in so many different ways.

Ooops - I was so busy finishing off some Christmas designs this weekend that I never got around to switching on the laptop, let alone posting anything. So, on the principle better late than never, here's the Saturday Share...

As I missed last week (technology problems, thankfully all fixed now) I thought I'd do two shares this week. It's been a bit difficult as there are loads of new designers on the Cross Stitch Showcase page but I hope you'll agree it's been worth it!
