Coming later in November in Issue 204 of Cross Stitch Collection, my new Winter Goddess. I am thrilled to bring you another portrait design, this time celebrating the beauty and wonder of the winter season. Using the lush flowers of a winter’s bouquet she is wreathed in greens, reds, whites and golds. Sparkling Mill Hill beads and shimmering Kreinik threads add to the lush texture of the design. She is stitch on Polstitches beautiful hand dyed ‘forrest queen’ 28 count Jobelan. I hope you will love her as much as I loved creating her!

    Wow, Wow ,Wow – I loved both Rose and Green goddesses, but Winter Goddess just blows me away. It is stunning, the face is so lifelike. Can’t wait to get this issue of Cross Stitch Collection and love the fabric you have chosen, really compliments the flowers in the design πŸ™‚

    “Dear god give me more time!” This goddess is very beautiful. This perfekt eyes and the Christmas blooms between the green. I love it.

    A nice day

    This isn’t at all what I expected from the pictureless email digest! I love her, I’m getting through Green Goddess quite quickly (for me) despite all the different greens.
    I will definitely by getting this issue of CSC.
    Also Thanks for releasing the four Christmas Angels as a chartpack, I missed their magazine.

    Is there any possibility that the Winter Goddess is available in a chartpack or through another vendor? I’d really like to stitch this for Christmas this year! Thanks!
