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.

A Little Bit of Christmas Spirit on the 20th Day of Stitchmas

Christmas-Spirit-Cross-StitchThis is Christmas Spirit by Brittercup Designs

I’m generally lacking in holiday spirit myself and my husband and my kids are the crazy holiday cheermiesters that start singing carols and picking out wrapping paper as soon as Thanksgiving is over. This year everyone seems to be a little down everywhere I look. I don’t know what’s contributing to that this year, whether it’s politics or the economy, I just want to go out on a mission to cheer everyone up.

Shiver Me Timbers is Chart of the Week

Shiver Me Timbers Cross Stitch DesignWe just took our boys to see Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, so I think I have pirate on the brain. But this little shivering guy popped out at me this weekend and I knew I had to share him with you.

This is Shiver Me Timbers by Sue Hillis Designs, a totally cute stitch and fairly quick at a stitch count of 99W X 125H. The model was stitched on Pewter Lugana fabric, but I think any grey or blue-ish fabric would work wonderfully for him (or any snowman design in general.)

Happy Stitching! [Read more…]
