Little House Needleworks

I have been going through project bags to kit up a few for stitchmaynia this year and realized I have not photographed this piece.  It is Winter ABC's by Little House Needleworks.  It is part of a four piece series.  This one is my favorite!  Stitched on 16 count Icon Aida fabric by Picture This Plus.  I love everything thing about it.  Flosses include DMC (721, 645, 729) and Classic Colorworks:  Bamboo, Steamed Broccoli, Hickory Sticks, Licorice Red and Roasted Chestnut.   

The picture does not do it justice.  

Off to kit up the Spring ABC's.

Indigo Lane

This beautiful piece designed by Brenda Gervais aka With thy Needle & Thread.  I fell in love with this pattern after seeing it stitched on Flosstube.  Stitched on 18 count Aida Sterling by Picture This Plus.  Flosses are a combo of DMC (372, 613, 3032, 3756,931), Weeks Dyeworks (Gunmetal, Seagull, Navy, Light Khaki, Sandcastle, Pamlico), Classic Colorworks (Hazelnut and The Gentle Art ( Endive, Slate, Cornhusk).  
This piece is the inspiration for my living room.  

A Spring Finish

This adorable pattern is by Christiane Dahlbeck.  I have looked forward to stitching this piece for the past year.  This will be a cute addition to my decor.  Stitched on 14 count Aida colors I chose all in DMC 310, 435, 433, 3864, 989, 744, 519, 907, 776, 727, 904, and Blanc.  I made slight changes from the original- part on accident, part on purpose.

March 2021

Christiane Dahlbeck's design out of this book is one I have wanted to stitch for the past year.  It is in the same DMC threads as my previous post- I did add 2 more shades of green- 907 and 989.  I hope to pop this is a little frame for next March.  Aida fabric in white 16 count.

Spring Project

I don't think I posted this last year but I stitched this piece in 14 count ivory Aida in DMC.  The floss colors are 3864, 433, 435, 310, Blanc, 818, 500, 904, and 704.  704 is the bright green and I will say I really like this color.  The design book is in German and I picked colors that appear very close to the design.  I have several of Christiane Dahlbeck's books.  The patterns are sweet.  

Heart in Hand Stitching

Another adorable Heart in Hand design that I stitched this winter is in the Wee One collection entitled Valentine Bird.  I did make a few slight changes.  Cross-stitched I. 16 count ivory Aida with DMC flosses:. 223, 304, 610, 712, 729 and 841.  Heart motifs are so fun to stitch.  

Valentine Stitching

Heart in Hand has some of the best Valentine cross-stitch patterns.  This quick stitch is Bird in the hand Valentine's Day.  I used hand dyed Aida (coffee/tea dyed) 16 count.  The flosses are all DMC: 223, 712, 841, 838, 3716 and 3721.  I stitched two threads over one.  This will be cute as a small pillow for decorating next year.
