NEW 2018 Holiday Cross Stitch is Here!

And just like that, another design year has come to an end!  These are my last releases for the year 2018.  This series of holiday charts are ready and waiting to get you into the holiday stitching spirit!  

Winter in Baltimore is the 4th and final in this series.  Worked over 1 linen thread on 28 count Lugana and then finished onto a small oval mache box for a lovely finish.  The pattern will also instruct you how to turn a new bottlebrush tree into a lovely faded green tree that looks like an antique one!  Mache' boxes and bottlebrush trees can be purchased at here.

Basketful of Winter Time is the 4th and final chart to this seasonal series!  Worked in a bit of a different color palette then I typically use, I liked the end results and hope you all do as well!

Candy Cane Wishes is worked on a lovely, minty green linen and is a perfect background for this sweet little snowman fella and his cardinal friends!  Finished on a small oval mache box.  Box and minty green linen can be found here.

 According to the wooly caterpillar, we are in for a cold winter here in NW Iowa.  With lots of cold and snow in the forecast, Frosty and his cardinal friend are ready....wooly scarves and snow boots will be required!  All Bundled Up! and ready for winter!

New Seasonal Series coming soon!

While there are several inches of snow on our ground here in NW Iowa, there are little signals that Spring is approaching.  First off, our days are growing longer...I love this, don't you?  The cardinals have started singing their courting songs, chickadees are fee-beeing... so welcoming to hear and gives us hope that warmer and muddy days are approaching!  I always enjoy seasonal stitching and am excited to share with you a new series, one for each season.  Spring and Summer will be releasing in early March with Autumn and Winter to follow in 2018, prior to each season.

These are small in size, precious & petite and make great bowl fillers or cupboard tucks.  I chose to work these over 2 on a 40 count linen.  They finish up into 4 5/8" x 4" little pillows.  Ric rac trim to the edges makes a sweet & simple finish.
