Christmas Cross Stitch Pattern

Just popping by to say a quick hello and let you know I am still here!

I have designed this Christmas Mini Grey Cats Cross Stitch pattern “Love In the Snow” for you to download.

It can easily be stitched in a few hours and made up into a pretty gift for someone special.

There is another little pattern to match this one, I will post that next Saturday or Sunday.

The pattern can be downloaded from the bottom of this post.

Happiness is Cross Stitching

Two of my blogging friends Lesta and Astrid kindly stitched my Happiness Is Cross Stitching pattern and sent me photos to show on my blog, I think they did a wonderful job of stitching them.

Lesta stitched this and finished it into a hanging frame, I think it is so pretty.

Astrid mounted the finish and stitched the grass at the bottom, I thought that was such a sweet addition to the pattern and really finished it off.

Thankyou ladies!

This is my finish of the Happiness is Cross Stitching Pattern

Knitting and cross stitch

I have not been doing much cross stitching lately, although I did start stitching my Christmas Tree Farm Cross Stitch pattern, but then decided to finish a knitted jumper I started last year.

I just have a little bit more knitting to do and then it is ready for blocking, here is the pattern, but I will show you when it is finished.

The yarn is really soft Chunky yarn, I loved it that much I ordered some more to make a second one in a lovely pale colour.

The feature I really like in this jumper is the way it hangs a bit longer at the back.

When the winter arrives I always have the desire to knit cosy sweaters, but I also had some yarn to knit a scarf too, it is a gift for someone so cannot show it yet.

The yarn for the scarf is a gorgeous plum colour with faux cables running through the design and I know I will probably make another!

Here is the free pattern for Love in the Snow.

More free patterns can be found here on my blog.

I hope you are all staying safe.

Until next week, happy stitching!

    Thank you my friend for the nice cats, they are so cute.
    What a nice pattern on the sweater, I like it, I’ll probably check if you can just buy the pattern.
    I hope you show yours when it’s done.
    Wish you a nice weekend
