A Little Fun Christmas Stitching

New for Christmas

I know that we have just finished Halloween celebrations, but what better time to start on some new Christmas stitches! Both the Angel and Snowman ornaments are a quick and easy stitch done on plastic canvas, perforated paper, or Aida, all 14 count. If you prefer stitching on Aida or 28 count Evenweave, you can back your stitching with a heavy weight iron on interfacing and cut the shapes out. The interfacing will keep your fabric from fraying. Alternatively you can make up little individual pillow ornaments. Whichever way you decide to finish these bright, cheerful ornaments, just add a bit of string or ribbon at top and they will be ready to hang on your tree.

The Nativity scene reminds us of the true meaning of Christmas. Stitch it up as a framed picture or door hanger to bring the serenity and peace of the Christmas season to your home.

    Joan dearest, you have some possibilities with Thanksgiving. I had to go off your charts and consume other things to cross stitch some Thanksgiving things. It’s quite a bore the American holiday, but this is where you can make Thanksgiving magical. Please tell this American boy you can design a glittery beaded Turkey. Your glittery beaded dragons are to die for. I’m working on your Celtic Wheel cushion, which we Americans call a throw pillow. I am pleading, make Thanksgiving cool. It’s so tan and green and orange. Make Thanksgiving so beaded glittery cool. Maybe an exploding Turkey?
