Collections on the 22nd Day of Stitchmas

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. Can you believe Christmas is this weekend!?! Who’s excited? ;) I know I’m looking forward to a few days off and relaxing with the kids over here.

Today’s stocking choice isn’t just one stocking, it’s an entire collection of cross stitch stockings from Donna Kooler.

This sequel to the hugely popular Ultimate Stocking Collection is definitely more of a very good thing.

Fourteen whimsical-to-elegant designs give you beautiful ways to deck the mantel with cross stitched stockings.

Themes are varied to suit a wide array of individual interests. Alphabet charts are included so each stocking can be personalized. The easy assembly instructions ensure a perfect finish.

With this collection you can easily stitch a different stocking for every member of the family and maybe even a few more for the gift recipients on your “very nice” list.

So, it’s only fitting that our ornament choice today be a collection as well, right? This stunning representation of the 12 Days of Christmas from Stoney Creek was stitched on 28 count Water Lily linen using DMC floss, Weeks Dye Works thread, Rainbow blending thread, Mill Hill beads.

The best part of this leaflet is that it’s charted out so that it may be stitched as a sampler or as a center motif with separate ornaments. Stitch count for the full sampler project is192x190, the center motif stitch count is100x98 and the individual ornaments come in at stitch count of 45×45. Includes finishing instructions for ornaments as well.

Happy Stitchmas!

About Loretta Oliver

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.
