This week’s chart of the week is a design I came across while browsing the Counted Wishes Festival. The Fall session just started and runs through September 21st.
Northern Lights by Gracewood Stitches
131 x 305 Stitch Count, on 18 count aida measures 7″ x 17″. Stitches are all cross stitch and back stitch, using DMC cotton floss, use 1 or 2 strands over 1 square.
The designers notes about the piece:
Northern Nights is inspired by cold winter nights in our northern mountain home, Gracewood. The cold blue of the night and the soft golden glow of our home’s lights on the snowy landscape gave me some of the images for this band sampler. This piece is dedicated to our two guardian dogs, Zach and his son, Jubal, sadly no longer howling at the moon.
You can find this design and other lots of other patterns by independent designers at the Counted Wishes Festival.
