I am slowly starting to finish the Christmas embroideries. This beautiful card with a snowman was made from the Orchid kit, and it came out adorable! The kit included 14 count Aida, a needle, presorted DMC threads, a pattern, instructions and the card itself.
I like stitching small pieces sometimes, especially when I am tired from full coverage stitching. As a result, I always have some unfinished pieces for Christmas, and all I need is to complete them all. Tomorrow maybe I’ll turn them into Christmas gift tags and a card.
New cross stitch Christmas tree ornaments Icicles in progress. They are like old-world Christmas decorations or festive Christmas decor. There will be not only a cross stitch pattern but detailed assembly instruction too. I am wondering whether to stitch them on Aida or plastic canvas?
Fall appeared some days ago. As I know, cross-stitchers started their Christmas stitching in summer or at least at the beginning of Autumn. So we prepared a new Christmas pattern with Bullfinches, which will be at the shop tomorrow. Today is only a sneak peek 🙂
A little sneak peeks at our new pattern on Stitchersland – Christmas Decoration. So far, it’s only two marbles. There will be more, perhaps not just marbles. You can stitch them all together as a picture or individually to decorate a Christmas card. I’m going to cross-stitch them on plastic canvas, and decorate not only my Christmas tree but also my workplace with them. Anyway, get imaginative and wait for the whole chart to appear.
Because my main customers are from the USA and that delivery times before Christmas are doubling if not tripling, I decided to run a Christmas campaign in July. The first item I listed in the shop was a garland of multicoloured stars in the typical Christmas colours of dark green, red and white. The stars bunting made up of 14 stars with string, crocheted from 100% mercerized cotton yarn. The garland is perfect for home decoration all year round, especially on Christmas and New Year celebrations. You can use it in a baby room, kid’s room, bedroom, living room, fireplace, on the wall, as a Christmas table or Christmas tree decoration, for wedding decor or party decor also. The garland is 180 cm (70,8 inches) long, and a single star is 6,5 cm (2,5″) in diameter. There are small loops on the ends of the garland. If you like this idea but in a different length or colour scheme, drop us a message, and we’ll be happy to crochet it for you.
My Santa has a face, and eyes, and eyebrows, and beard :)))
I really don’t like french knots, but when I see how they bring alive the embroidery…well, I guess I’m wrong. This is a bush before and after adding them.
I’ve don all the full crosses and half crosses on my Dimensions Gold Collection kit, so there is the highest time to decorate the stitching with couching, beading, back stitch and french knots. Some parts of couching was done this week and there were any problems with it for me, back stitch never was a problem, I even like it, but french knots… they are my headache, possibly for being a perfectionist. That is the best I could do.
Santa in progress (without backstitch, beads and cording, only whole and half cross stitches).
