Celtic October is Chart of the Week

Celtic-October-Vickery-Collection-Cross-StitchI love all things Autumn, not just pumpkins and fun Halloween designs. It’s my absolute favorite time of the year, from September right through to December.

This chart caught my eye this week with the bright Autumn colors and, of course, the knotwork accents. So pretty!

Celtic October by Vickery Collection. Stitch count is 140w x 200h, and from what I can tell the model is stitched on white aida using DMC threads. Such an amazing use of color here, I honestly expected to find a list of specialty threads and overdyed floss, but according to the floss list those are standard DMC. Autumn colors are just the best ~ they don’t need any doctoring up ;-)

Okay, enough gushing about my love of Autumn.

Mini Pumpkin by Jeannette Douglas is Chart of the Week

mini-pumpkin-jeannette-douglas-cross-stitch-samplerI tried to find a thread requirements list online, but couldn’t locate one. You can add the embellishment pack and fabric right from the shopping page, easy peasy. It’s a newer release design, so I’m sure there will be some thread requirements popping up online soon.

I’m kind of in love with pumpkins right now, as happens every October. Pumpkin stitching, pumpkin spice lattes (#PSL!), pumpkin pie, pumpkin cake, pumpkin brownies, and anything else I can add pureed pumpkin to!

Believe Mill Hill Kit is Chart of the Week

Believe Santa Mill Hill KitI’ve been seeing a lot of Christmas in July celebrations being planned and it got me thinking about holiday stitching ~ of course.

This week’s chart pick is Believe from Mill Hill, and it’s actually a full stitching kit. I love these Mill Hill beaded stitching kits, they’re quick, they’re fun, and they have some really great holiday designs. (Which reminds me, I have one in the UFO pile.)
