My Christmas Gift to You!

Thank you all for following my dubious ramblings and cheering me on this year! I'm so glad to have a place to share my need for some sort of creativity and you've all been so encouraging!

So by way of thanks here's a freebie cross stitch for Christmas and I sincerely hope you enjoy stitching it up!

This is how I made mine up on 28ct natural pearl linen~I love how the red ticking makes it all the more festive!

So here's the pattern - I used DMC red 498 floss and white (blanc), 2 strands over 2.

I still need to put finishing touches to my Christmas decorating - I need more lights as some broke and I have to gather some more greenery for displays... so lots to enjoy!

Thanks again!
SEASON'S BLESSINGS!

  6. That's so cute, Christine, thanks for sharing! I haven't cross-stitched since my kids were babies; now I'm trying quilting. Hopefully I'll have something to show for it soon...

    I do love that pattern though, and it looks great they way you finished it off.

    Hugs,
