Recently I have started watching floss tube You Tube videos about cross stitch and I have the cross stitch bug! I have completed a piece that I did modify a bit from the original pattern. I feel like the patterns are a jumping off point. It is a Lizzie Kate pattern in the winter smalls collection #189. Now I just need to decide if I want to make it into a pillow, an ornament or frame it.
I encourage you to check out cross stitch and the online community of flosstubers.

The pattern name is Winter Blanket #675 from Threads that Bind. I used a kit that included Valdani 3 strands floss color 196, Weeks Dye Works #1103, DMC 310, 3033, 904, 817, 844 and miscellaneous for the pennies on the blanket.
I am very happy with the result. I plan to add a wool border and frame the piece.
