Victorian Winter by Julia Lucas

This pattern was featured in the Just Cross Stitch Magazine dated Jan/Feb 2016 issue and was shared on their Facebook page in January of this year. I had downloaded it , printed it out at the beginning of the year and started on it in February but had put it away to do other projects for the year. I decided this month to make it my focus piece in my rotation. I have a couple of SALs going on which I can work this one into 1 of them.
The SAL list so far for next year (2017):
 Miriabilia SAL - Mira March 2017 due to start March 1st 2017.
General Year Long SAL - due to start January 1, 2017
I'll be posting about those in the next few weeks....

 12- 29-15 A FINISH ! Woohoo now I am ready to get the SAL(s) going on January 1st 2017. Here is Victorian Winter completed. I'll be framing this one.





Back to Victorian Winter if you do a search on Google - Victorian Winter by Julia Lucas. A   PDF link should pop up at the top of the search list.
*12-24-2016 Well here we are on Christmas Eve I'm still working on Victorian Winter. The 1st floor is done except for back stitching and now I am working on the 2nd floor. It's not looking like a end of year finish though, hoping to make some progress on it over the next few days before  the New Year soooo without further ado a progress pic......
Merry Christmas to all and may Mr. Frog stay away! Happy Stitching! ~ C's Cross Stitch Creations~



* 12-11-2016 I'm back with another update on Victorian Winter. I've finished both the left & right side trees and now working on the bottom floor of the house. It's starting to take shape. I've added the front porch post and railings and one outline of a window.
Happy Stitching! Keep warm, Stay safe! ~ C's Cross Stitch Creations~


*12 - 5- 2016 Another little up on Victorian Winter. I now have the walkway filled in and a tree almost complete on the right side. Probably a weird way to work but I am working on the left and then the right sides of the pattern and saving the house/cottage for last. So without further ado......

* 12-1-2016 Back to Victorian Winter showing it some love after stitching a couple of ornaments.
Here I am so far. After I finish up the Green tree on the left, I'll work on the driveway/walkway at the bottom.



Here is where I am so far.... This is being stitched on 14 count Light Blue Aida by MCG Textiles I buy mine from a local craft store. I also use Charles Craft Aida but couldn't find any in stock of this color...... anyway onto the picture show.....


Happy Stitching and may Mr. Frog stay away! ~C's Cross Stitch Creations~
