HERE IT IS!
Christmas Candles is here in time for Christmas. This is my first new chart in a while, as I have been a little of the grid lately!
This is a chart that is suitable for all stitchers, as it uses whole stitches only, no fractionals, and only a little bit of backstitch. Two shades of red, two shades of green, yellow and black make up the colors needed for this seasonal design.
Stitch count is 67 x 67, finished size approximately 5″ x 5″ when stitched on 14 count aida.
Believe it or not, this chart, of the concept of it has been in my inventory for a while, I just needed to tweak it, and make some small revisions to get it ready for sale. I love this one because it is so simple! You could even use elements of the design to make ornaments for your tree – how’s that for a multi-use design!
Available in my Etsy store here for £5.50. I can even put this together into a kit for you, so please ask!
Hope you like the new addition to my chart collection – there’s more to come!
Stitchy Hugs to you all,
I think I won an award! Not really, but it sure feels like it! My Home Sweet Home cross stitch chart has been chosen as Chart of the Week over at Stitching The Night Away.
Loretta Oliver is one of my online stitching buddies, and I have been following her Facebook page for some time now. She writes with knowledge about many stitching topics, allows us stitchers to use free patterns from her website, and has a very interesting blog where she shares her own experiences. She often features other stitchers work on her site and I am delighted to say that this is not the first time she has written about me. You can find her previous article here.
Let’s get back to Home Sweet Home – a place where we all love to be. This piece was inspired by two things. The trees come from the forests around Lake Tahoe here in California, and the colors of the cabins come from the Painted Lady Houses in San Francisco. It is a mix of city colors and country living where these brightly colors cabins nestle in among the pine trees. The finished piece measures 6″ x 8.5″. It is perfect for all levels of stitchers, as there are only whole stitches and some easy backstitch to deal with. You can find the pattern for sale in my Artfire Studio and Etsy Store along with my other original designs.
But what if you love this piece and you’re not a stitcher? Well, just for you, I can stitch this for you and send you the finished piece ready for framing. Details of my custom stitching service can be found on my website and you can contact me for more details and pricing.
Stitchy Hugs to you all!
