Cross Stiched Puffin

I love a small cross stitch project. Here’s my puffin, started whilst I was doing 30 days wild, when it rained.

and finished at the weekend.

Chart from a magazine dated 1993! Do you think I might just have some hoarding tendencies?

  1. i love puffins

  2. Lovely rainy day project – and it’s not hoarding. It’s called being prepared. I know, because that’s what I do:)

  3. I was going through some pattern books the other day and found one that has a copyright date of 1977. Never know when something will be useful!

  4. Do you know the poem about the puffin? “There once was a puffin, in the shape of a muffin, And he lived on an island in the deep blue sea . . . “

  5. Definitely not, because I have cross stitch mags from 1989, and I still use them! They have some great patterns!

  6. so cute. Puffins rock!

  7. Adorable! Better late than never?

  8. Looks fantastic

  10. Nice puffin and only hording if you stash it and never make it.

  11. That is very pretty. I like the way you did the gray shading.

  12. Such a lovely little puffin! I’m so glad I’m not the only one hoarding old magazines 😀

  13. Ummmm, yes? Maybe? But at least you get around to using it – hoarders just hoard. So, no 🙂 Cute puffin!!

  14. lol I have loads of old craft, knitting and cross stitch mags. I did go through them all a few years ago and pull out all the patterns I liked, tossed all the ads, etc. It went from a whole bookshelf full to four three inch binders. Still more than I can do in a life time…

    • I have got rid of a lot of magazines and only kept the ones with projects I fancied doing, which at the time did not include the puffin! But jolly glad i did because he looks rather jolly in the cloakroom.

      • good for you! I likely threw away projects that I would like to do someday, but some clearing had to happen. You little puffin is very cheerful 🙂

  15. Better late than never 🙂

  16. So cute! No hoarding tendencies, you just plan way ahead:)

  17. Very nice puffin though….:) x

    • Thanks, I had really wanted to see them for real at Bempton but failed to organise myself, never mind there is always next year.
