Laurels Holiday Cheer Cross Stitch Ornament

Stitched by Laurel

Laurel has been making my inbox very happy lately with all her stitching pictures 🙂 This pattern is the third ornament in the 2012 Ornament Club.

Thank you again to Laurel for sharing her great stitching work with us 🙂

The 2012 Ornament Pattern Club is still open and you can join at any time this year. You’ll begin with pattern #1 in the series no matter what month you join in and then receive the additional patterns every 30 days so you won’t feel pressured to catch up to the group.

Happy Stitching!

Christine's Finished Snowflake Cross Stitch

Snowflake Stitched by Christine

The 2012 Ornament Club is going well so far and I’ve really been enjoying seeing the finished ornaments when they reach my inbox.

Christine finished stitching her snowflake this weekend and posted the picture to our Facebook community. One of my favorite things is seeing everyone’s color variations and Christine stitched her snowflake in red. I love it!

Happy Stitching!

Laurel is a stitching machine lately! She sent in this finish of the fluffy snowflake pattern (This is pattern #2 in the 2012 Ornament Club here)

I love this fabric ~ just gorgeous! Laurel stitched her snowflake on 16 count Twilight by Picture This Plus using DMC Pearlesent Effects E5200.

Laurel also recently stitched the first pattern from the club, you can see that finish here. And she was also recently featured in the community section here.

Lindsay’s Valentine Heart Cross Stitch


Stitched by Lindsay

This is my kind of valentine! Lindsay stitched her Valentine heart in all black. I love how it just pops off the fabric!

I’m so not a girly foo-foo pink frilly kind of girl.

Not to say I don’t like girly things, I like hearts and flowers as much as the next gal, but not boring blah pink same old crap flowers.

I want big blooming magnolias, black roses, or flowing lilies, or simple daisies and purple tulips. [Read more…]

Brushstroke Butterfly Plus a Lovely Quote

The free Brushstroke Butterfly pattern has been stitched in many ways for charities and gifts over the past few years, but I really like the addition of a quote as Nancy has used it here in her gift for a friend…

This Ornament Club finish came in from Laurel. She stitched her ornament on 16ct Jade by Picture This Plus fabric.

– As a side note, someone please remind me to order some Picture This Plus fabbies for my stash cabinet. I’ve noticed a few folks using them in the STNA Facebook community and in the Ornament Club and the fabrics are really lovely.
