Christmas Cross Stitch

Thanks so much to those of you who looked at my last post on my Christmas decorating. The SBA(super blog assistant-he loads the photos) and I bought a camera for our Christmas gift to each other.  Blogging has made me so much more interested in taking pictures.  Do any of you feel the same?  Anyway, I was practicing with the new camera and decided to show you all the Christmas cross stitch that I have up in the house.  I'm not gong to identify each one.  If you have questions, let me know and I will try to find any information you might need about a particular design.

 This ornament is very special.  Last summer I gave Chris ,over at the blog Tot Hill Farm Stitches, a chart.  I received this adorable ornament in the mail a few days ago as a thanks.  Chris, I love it!!! It is happily hanging on my tree. The rest of the photos will be just a cross stitch tour.
























Lastly, this is what we woke up to this morning.  Our first snow.   We will be leaving to head South soon. I will blog when I can but want to take this opportunity to wish, those of you who celebrate Christmas, a very Merry one.  And may the rest of you have a wonderful winter holiday break.

  5. Fabulous Christmas stitching you shared! I love your felted cardinal in your header. Where did you get him? What is the design just below the ornament from Chris? I figured out the rest except for that one!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  8. Your "Evergreen" is somewhat the same colouring as mine. I used 4 DMC Colour Variations for mine. Attractive finish too! Maria S. in Ontario

    I am so glad you like the tiny ornament. He fits in well with all your other fabulous PS Santas. You have stitched some beautiful Xmas pieces.

    Thanks for the snow pic.

  16. I love them all! Do you hang them all up at Christmas time? Or just lean them against the walls? I know that's a crazy question. I am really wondering... do you just switch out pictures with the seasons? Or do you have a place where the Christmas ones stay up all year?

  19. You do such beautiful work! I noticed in one picture where you have 4 Prairie Schooler Santas. I am missing the pattern for the one with the squirrels. I have my piece 3/4's stitched & somehow lost the pattern. Any chance you could share it with me. Most appreciated.
