Here is the additional Christmas peace cross stitch pattern I promised from last weeks post. I have added last weeks pattern and this weeks pattern into the pdf document below.
You can download the pattern from the bottom of this post.
I have not completed the final finishing but this is a photo of the progress so far. The little bird house pattern will be next weeks freebie.

It can be a bit tricky stitching on black fabric, however there are some tricks you can use to make it a little easier.
Place a white piece of paper or fabric on your knee, this allows you to see the holes easier. You can also use an embroidery light with a daylight bulb.
I find stitching black easier during the day, leaving it until later in the day just makes it more difficult to see.
Knitting this week
I have made some more progress on my grey jumper and I am loving it!
The neckline is really cosy and the yarn is really soft. I made a mistake when initially picking up the stitches but I saw my mistake and rectified it.
Just need to finish off the shoulder band and stitch it together, and I need to find the perfect buttons to finish off.
I am in a knitting mood so decided to try and get this scarf finished.
This scarf is quite easy to knit for a beginner or intermediate knitter.
It is a faux cable scarf, the knitting appears to be a cable knit but no cable needle is required. I am knitting it in Rowan Cotton yarn which knits up beautifully.
There are 12 rows to the design and you can knit as many columns as you wish. The pattern is a free pattern from Ravelry here.
Time for a gift at Christmas
I think it is time I put together a small gift for one of my readers.
If you would like to be in with a chance of winning these 8 floss cards on a ring with the personalised needle threader, then leave a comment on this post.
Let me know what you would like to see on my new floss card designs and glass charms, and also tell me what initial you would like for the personalised needle threader.
I will draw the name next Sunday 13th December Paris time, the deadline for entries is 12pm on that day.
These floss drops and matching floss holder tags are becoming a bit of an addiction of mine, I love making them!
This is the latest set I have made for my Etsy shop, it includes the floss drop glass charm with the 8 floss cards, the ruler, needle threader and two personalised charms.
Here is the free pattern…
Until next time, happy stitching!
