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.

Reindeer on the Rooftops on the 17th Day of Stitchmas

A few people have mentioned that they’re looking for reindeer themed projects this year and having difficulty finding them… so I went hunting myself and I concur, there are not enough reindeer patterns out there to be stitched. I found a handful of patterns, but not nearly as many as I hoped when I set out on my reindeer seeking mission this morning.

Whimsical I <3 Cross Stitch Watch

Whimsical-I-Heart-Cross-Stitch-WatchI was up early this morning doing a little secret holiday shopping and I came across this watch… the face area is filled with miniature cross stitch tidbits like floss, scissors, and charts, then across the top it says “I <3 Cross Stitch.”

Totally cute! If I wore a watch this would have certainly hopped into my cart at Amazon this morning and hitched a ride to my house along with the gifts I picked up for my boys.

The good news is there’s still time to pick this whimsical cross stitch watch up with free shipping from Amazon (or add it to your wishlist there in the hopes that your special Santa will notice it and place an order in time for the holidays ;)) [Read more…]

Winter Cross Stitch That’s Really a Puzzle on the 11th Day of Stitchmas

Not a puzzle as in a mystery or something confusing, but as in an actual jigsaw puzzle that you put together. No needle and thread required to finish this winter piece inspired by Sandy Orton’s cross stitch designs, just some table space and the patience to assemble the 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle.
