MERRY CHRISTMAS

My Christmas wish is that I hope that everyone has a safe and happy holiday with family and friends!
Oh and sneak a little stitching in here and there....xxxxx





 Been working on Stockings and a small cardinal ornament that I modified from a pattern called Cardinal Ribbon from Better Homes and Gardens " A Cross Stitch Christmas" ©1996
Picture from the Book and partially stitched ornament ^
Also getting another Better Homes and Garden book. It's in the mail to me now.
 A Cross Stitch Christmas - A Season for Stitching ©2002
Kind of thinking of collecting these but not quite sure yet as I have several...ok ok tons of patterns still needing to be stitched but I can't resist something with Cardinals  and Santa in it. ;)

This is one of a few I have planned on stitching this year and into next year. Goal is to have more Cardinals on my Christmas Tree next year.

Stocking #3 Christmas Eve progress- working on this one this week.

Stocking #1 Winter Wildlife Christmas.












Stocking #2 A Celtic Christmas. 1 more large
band to finish















Also working on a pattern from StitchX Cross Stitch Designs. you can find the shop at StitchX Cross Stitch Designs - Craftsy






One last thing to show is a small haul from  my birthday 12-16-2018

My Sister-In-Law has for the past few years sent me a Amazon Gift card for my Birthday, This year I found a medium size cross stitch chart that will work with all my Christmas decorations among others that I am working on.
This one I am planning on stitching  on 18 count Aida -color is Oatmeal. The size on 18 ct. is 13 3/4 inches wide x 4 inches high.
If you stitch this on the called for 28 ct. 2over2 it would be 17 3/4"w x 5" h
There's also "Spring in the Village" book 415 , "Summer in the Village"book 416 and "Autumn in the Village"book 417




 Stoney Creek Collection Book 418  Winter in the Village.

 This pattern can be found on Amazon and several other sites like -

Happy Stitching and May you have smokin' needles...xxx
