Sleigh Bells Ring, Day 9 of 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.

Our first tree skirt of Stitchmas of 2010 is Sleigh Ride Tree Skirt from Dimensions. This is kit, so everything is included.

And to go along with it, this Jingle ornament kit from Mill Hill ~ which I bought along with the Frosty ornament kit also… my stash is growing far too much during this Stitchmas event! It should arrive this week, along with my Mill Hill treasure for the top of my Peace tree. Jingle and Frosty are stitched on plastic and cut out, lots of sparkle in there from the Mill Hill beads and charms.

That’s all for the ninth day of Stitchmas! I hope you’re enjoying the selections. If you have any suggestions or requests for help finding something just let me know.

Happy 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.

This cute stocking from Bent Creek called My Favorite Things really caught my eye today. Who could resist the fun holiday things included here, snowflakes, holly, a Christmas tree, Santa, a snowman and a candy cane bring out the holiday joy.

The model was stitched over 2 threads on 18 Ct. Natural linen with Weeks Dye Works (Whitewash, Onyx-2, Lancaster Red-3, Rum Raisin, Sand, Chestnut, Seaweed, Schneckley, Juniper) and Gentle Art Sampler Threads (Shaker White, Nutmeg). Stitch Count: 97W x 146H. Buttons from Just Another Button Company sold separately.

But, I confess it was really the holiday candy that was on my mind! Check out these adorable Ribbon Candy Ornaments from Calico Crossroads!

Model stitched on 14ct. white perforated paper using kreinik floss and DMC floss. finished size (not including hanger): 1.5″ high x 1″ wide. They’d make great gifts and I can imagine they’re a ton of fun to stitch (and better for you than the actual candies! LOL)

Kitties! Day 7 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. Day 7 already, and far too many things are finding their way into my stash over here!

Today we’re looking at kitties! Meow ~ I love the Britty Kitty Stocking from Brittercup Designs, it’s been a favorite of mine for awhile now.

The model was stitched on 28 Ct. Queen Anne’s Lace Jobelan with Weeks Dye Works (Amber, Chestnut, Onyx, Union Blue, Seaweed-2, Scuppernong -2, Marigold, Hazelnut, Turkish Red, Hibiscus, Azaleas, Indian Summer). Finished Project Stitch Count is 132W x 193H.

To stick with our meowy kitty theme the ornament today is Christmas Kitty Moon by Stitchy Kitty, which actually includes two ornament patterns. One is a moon shaped kitty with ornaments hanging from his hat (Stitch Count: 51W x 50H) and a Christmas paw print (Stitch Count: 34W x 32H).

You could stitch them as separate ornaments or use the paw print as the backside of the kitty moon ornament, it’s sure to be cute either way.

Happy Stitchmas!
