Lizzie Kate Stitching

My February started with two Lizzie Kate designs, both slightly modified.  F 164 Love and Be Mine Valentine #577.  I stitched them in the same colors as I knew I would display them together.  All flosses are DMC 3052, 3803, Ecru, 604, and 3740.  Two strands held together on coffee/ tea dyed Aida 16 count.




What fun these will be to fully finish into pillows.


Valentine's Stitching

The next pattern is by Heart in Hand 2017 collector's heart.  Flosses are all DMC 223, 610, 3721, 224 and a mystery green for the leaves. Fabric is coffee/ tea dyed 16 count.  

What a fun project!

February Stitching

As I excitedly await new baby goats and lambs I have been stitching.  
The first pattern has changed from the original by Nikyscreations it is from the Just CrossStitch 2018 Special Holiday Ornament issue.  It was modified to be more like Valentine's.  ditched on 14 count Aida toffee(I think).  The colts if floss are all DMC  898, 3721, 712, and 224. I think it came out so very cute!

Beautiful Cross-stitch Pattern

I Cross-stitched this pattern Jingle All the Way, by Brenda Gervais over the holidays.  Another of my anticipated projects for the season.  I used 16 count Mirage Aida fabric dyed by Picture This Plus.  
DMC used 3021, 3782, 869, 950, 3772 and 677.  Weeks Dye Work Oscar, Gentle Arts Chalk, and Classic Colorworks Gingerbread and one of my all time favorite fancy floss colors Cherry Cobbler.  

Baby It's Cold Outside

This pattern is a super quick stitch.  I have made a variety in this series Square Dance by Heart in Hand Needleart.  I woul like to finish them all this year...we will see I do get distracted by other creative pursuits easily.  I finished January using 16 count Aida cloth coffee/tea dyed.  DMC flosses used include 340, Blanc, 900, 310, 932, 433 and 3052.  Classic Coloworks floss Carrie Berry, Blacksmith Blue and Licorice Red.  That red is stunning and I hope to use it on another pattern soon.  I altered the pattern slightly as my French knots looked too big for the intended snowmen. 

January 2020

It is winter here with cold snow and freezing fog.  It makes the farm look so beautiful.  I have been inside stitching a bit.  I enjoyed this project from Brenda Gervais.  The chart is Holly Happy Soul.  I have had this in my to-do list for the past year.  Stitched on 16 count Aida coffee/tea dyed with two strands of floss.  I changed the pattern slightly.  Colors used Gentle Art Endive, Classic Coloworks Barn door, Cayenne, Eggshell and Muddy Puddle.  DMC includes 834, 3341, 3826, 610, 611 and 310.
