Sugarplum Fairies! Day 2 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. At least one of those will be an ornament and the second will be either a stocking cross stitch pattern or a tree skirt cross stitch kit.

Today’s theme is none other than the Sugarplum Fairy!

This Sugarplums Dancing Stocking design from Alma Lynne Designs is totally cute and a fun modern stocking for the little girl in your life.

I also think it would be fitting for a tween or teen girl as well, and I confess I know quite a few of us grown up girls that would love it just as much.

Model in the picture is stitched on 14 count Antique White Aida using DMC flosses.
Finished Project Stitch count: 132W x 186H.


As if that wasn’t cute enough, then I found this beautiful Spirit Of The Sugar Plum Fairy Ornament from Brooke’s Books Publishing and it just took my breath away. I quickly tossed it in my web shopping cart because it just screamed “stitch me, stitch me!”

Ornament stitched on 14ct. Brown and Metallic Perforated Paper with DMC Flosses. The finished project size is 5 X 7, so it’s sort of big as far as ornaments go, so I won’t be stitching her for my tree this year since I only have a little 4 foot tree up in the living room. (-lol- she would take up a whole section of my tree)

That wraps it up for this second day of Stitchmas! I hope you enjoyed today’s picks.

I’ll see you all again tomorrow for more great holiday cross stitch projects.

Merry Stitchmas! Day 1 of Christmas Cross Stitch

I can’t believe it’s December already and we’re counting down the days to Christmas. I know a lot of us are stitching away on holiday projects right now, and even more of us are planning next year’s holiday stitching. I love that it can be Christmas all year round with cross stitching and crafting projects. So, this morning I’m happy to announce our first annual 25 Days of Stitchmas!

Every day from now to Christmas we’ll take a look at two holiday stitching projects per day. At least one of those will be an ornament and the second will be either a stocking cross stitch pattern or a tree skirt cross stitch kit.

So, are you ready to stitchmas? I hope so! Let’s jump right in with today’s stitches….

Today’s stocking is Christmas Eve Stocking from Bent Creek.

It’s a fun rustic design of Santa and his reindeer on their traditional Christmas Eve trip that Bent Creek stitching fans are sure to love.

Model stitched over 2 threads on 18 Ct. Natural Linen with The Gentle Art Sampler threads (Gold Leaf) and Weeks Dye Works (Lancaster Red, Whitewash, Seaweed, Cocoa, Bark, Sand, and Onyx) The project completion also includes buttons from Just Another Button Company and of course your choice of backing fabrics and additional embellishments.
