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.
