Brushstroke Butterfly Stitched by Gavin


Stitched by Gavin

This very special butterfly was stitched by 9-year-old Gavin as a square for a World of Charity Stitching quilt project.

Gavin has been stitching since he was 7 and I’d say he did a very lovely job of it, plus he has great color choices!

This butterfly is a free cross stitch pattern available right here on Stitching the Night Away. It’s the perfect size for a charity square or a quick gift.

Little Snowman Crochet Pillow made by Kelly E.

This picture landed in my inbox today from Kelly E. She took the pattern for Little Snowman and used it to crochet this adorable pillow!

I’ve attempted crochet myself, but I can barely to stitch a straight row in single stitch so this sort of creativity fascinates me –
I love it! <3

Kelly, thank you so much for sharing your fun and beautiful work with us.

January Snowflake Stitched by Tammy

Another snowflake stitched on sparkly fabric, this one was stitched in a variegated purple floss by Tammy on some leftover opalescent aida she had. Ornaments are great for using up those leftover pieces of fun fabrics that you have in your stash πŸ˜‰

Great fabric and floss choice, Tammy! Thank you for sharing your stitching photos with us, always appreciated and I love seeing how everyone’s ornaments come out different even though we’re all using the same pattern.

If you’re looking for the snowflake pattern to stitch your own big sparkling snowflake you’ll find the pattern here.

Blue Snowflake Stitched on Red by Angela


stitched by Angela

When I posted Angela’s snowflake last week she had mentioned that she planned on stitching a second version on red fabric… well, she whipped it pretty fast – and she’s even finished it into an ornament ready to hang already! She’s way ahead of me on stitching projects for the new year, that’s for certain.

In case you missed her pretty red and green snowflake, you can find that here. <== And if you're looking for the January Snowflake pattern you can pick that up here. <== Happy Stitches Everyone <3
