A Little Something For You to Play With....

I thought you might like an early Christmas present. I worked up three Christmas cross stitch patterns in mini this morning. If you work them on #22 or smaller fabric, they should be suitable for a wall hanging or framed in miniature. In # 22, they would be a little less than 2" across. The smaller you work the better they look.

Don't forget that you can poke the pictures if you want a larger pattern.

You can use any shades of green, red and yellow that you want. I kept to the three colors to keep it simple. You can add more colors if you wish.

The second one with the trees have an Algerian eye stitch at the top of each tree. They are simply eight stitches worked in a circle. I thought that those might be nice in gold thread if you had it.




The last one can be done in any colors that you wish. The white spots on the balls are meant to be left white to represent reflections.

I hope some of you will try the patterns and I would love to see what you do with them.

An early Merry Christmas to you.

See you tomorrow.
