Welcome back to 25 Days of Stitchmas here at Stitching the Night Away where we’re counting down the days to Christmas with awesome cross stitch projects. Every day from now to Christmas we’ll take a look at two holiday stitching projects per day. At least one of those will be an ornament and the second will be either a stocking cross stitch pattern or a tree skirt cross stitch kit.
This Yule Fairy from Heaven and Earth Designs is one of my favorite stockings that I’ve ever seen, but I’m just not brave enough to start stitching another HAED right now or start another “over one” stitched project in addition to the ornament I’m stitching at the moment … maybe next year!
The model is stitched over one thread on 25 count fabric using DMC flosses. Finished project stitch count is 227W x 345H.
(I know that sounds big, but remember it’s stitched over one on evenweave instead of over two. If you stitched this over two it would be a really, really big stocking!)
The ornament today is super fun because it holds a photo. This Christmas Photo Ornament from The Sunflower Seed reminds me of the traditional ornaments we used to make as kids and then you’d slide a school photograph in for your mom or your grandma. I love the traditional look and feel for holiday decorating with the poinsettias and the red/green/gold color schemes.
Enjoy your weekend and Happy Stitching!
