On the 13th Day of Stitchmas…. Christmas Cross Stitch

Welcome back to 25 Days of Stitchmas here at Stitching the Night Away where we’re counting down the days to Christmas with awesome cross stitch projects. Every day from now to Christmas we’ll take a look at two holiday stitching projects per day.

Let’s start with the ornaments today before I overwhelm you with the stocking project.

This set is Merry Heart Ornaments from Homespun Elegance Ltd. This leaflet is a first for Heart shaped ornaments with a combination of “Traditional” & “Country” flair.

The fabrics used are linens by Wichelt Imports – 28 Count “Antique Blue”, over-dyed “Thyme”, and “Amber”. and 26 Count “Natural Brown”. They are embellished using our “Christmas Star”, “Tiny Pineapple” , “Primitive Open Star”, and “Classic Crown” Brass brass charms.

This is Spirit Of Yule Stocking from Heaven And Earth Designs and I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. It’s just stunning!

Jessica Galbreth is my favorite fantasy artist and every time I see her artwork converted to cross stitch I swoon.

Like most HAED designs it’s stitched over one thread on 25 count fabric using 90 different colors of DMC floss.

(Personally I might add a touch of blending filament in there for some well placed sparkle)

Stitch count of this project is 233W x 338H.

Happy Stitchmas!

About Loretta

I’ve been a cross stitcher since I was 8 years old. It was something I learned as a Girl Scout when we did a project for a badge related to crafts and the group choose to cross stitch a holiday design on a red sweatshirt using waste canvas. (Talk about hard first project, that was such a pain!) I was one of the first ones finished and I’ve had a needle in my hand almost every day since then.
