Happiness is cross stitching blog

Christmas stitching

Hi everyone, I have been doing a little bit of Christmas stitching, it is a Twelve Days of Christmas design that can be stitched as ornaments or a one piece design, it is one of my favourite cross stitch projects.

Edited: Apologies, I forgot to say who the designer is for this pattern, it is Sue Hillis Designs, you can get the pattern in England from here, don’t know where else it is available but I am sure local needlework stockists will be able to get it for you.

I love the colours in this 
Edited: You can see the finished ornament of Two Turtle Doves at this post here
I blogged about the first ornament, in case you missed it you can read about it in this post,  The Partridge in a Pear Tree here
Here is the first one I made, you can see the finishing  post here

Until next time, happy stitching!

Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B
