This piece stitched up quickly and will look adorable whether I finish it in a frame, an ornament or as a small pillow.

These cute patterns are from Erika Michael's Needleart Designs. The pattern is Mistletoe Kisses. I chose to use hand dyed with coffaa and tea Aida. I used flosses that I had on hand in DMC Blanc, 321, 987. These eventually will be finished into strawberries.
Brenda Gervais of With Thy Needle and Thread posted over about a week a fun cross-stitch along in Dec. I actually thought I posted this earlier ...Merry and Minty was the name of the SAL. I used 16 count Aida in ivory. DMC flosses were used Blanc, 712, 3779, 3778, 3830, 3777, 733, 732, 611, and 3021. It is very likely I will stitch this again as a gift.

Brenda Gervais aka With thy Needle and Thread patterns are some of my favorites. The first one I finished is entitled Candy Cane Wishes. Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric color Jolly Green by Luminous Fiber Arts. I utilized many DMC flosses. Cute, huh?

Jack is a new free pattern for newsletter subscribers to the That's So Kelly Co. You can find her site here at www.thatssokelly.com. I used chalkboard black 14 count Aida and several shades of yellow to orange and a few shades of green DMC colors.
What a great stitch for October!
Lizzie Kate Thankful String pattern. Stitched on coffee/tea dyed Aida 14 count fabric. DMC flosses used: 926, 731, 920, 729, 3828, 434, 898, and 3031.
The one change I made is to make the pie look more like a pumpkin pie- since it is my favorite at Thanksgiving.

I have really enjoyed so many of the designs by Hands On Design and Autumn Acres Farm is no exception. This cross stitch pattern is part of the Chalk on the Farm series with the original chalk artwork by Priscilla Blain. I stitched just one small part of the entire piece this year. I plan to stitch more parts next year to make a cute display of pillows for the fall season. Stitched on 14 count Aida with called for DMC colors listed in the pattern. This is a keeper!!
