Christmas Cross Stitching

Christmas cross stitching and other stitching

Christmas Cross Stitching and more designing

Hi everyone, welcome back!

There was no newsletter this week, I am currently reviewing how many times I need to use it.

There has been quite a lot of stitching, designing and creativity lately. Of course I had to include a free Mini Cat Christmas Cross Stitching design for you to stitch.

Here is the latest design of Mini Cat, I hope you love him as much as I do. I stitched him on Zweigart polka dot grey fabric which I think is pretty effective.

Included are some finishing tips, not a full tutorial but you may find it helpful if you want to finish your ornament just like this one.

What else have I been doing?

In addition to the Mini Cat designing I have been designing some other items for cross stitching.

Keeping organised is something I normally like to do but I always seem to fail with regards to organising my stitching. That is until I designed these printable project cards, they have made such a difference in keeping my projects neat and tidy.

One of my other favourite accessory to use in my stitching are these digital printable floss cards. I just print them out for each stitching project.

The Pumpkin Truck Finish and more Christmas Designs

Autumn/ Fall and Christmas are always a favourite season to design new cross stitch patterns, here are a few of my latest designs that I have finished stitching, the patterns are now available in my Etsy shop.

I almost forgot to mention the free thread holders I designed to match the Mini Cat Christmas Pattern, available to download below this post.

Print them on card stock suitable for your printer and cut around the edge with scissors and use a 1/2 inch punch to cut out the holes. Thread your floss through the holes to keep your floss organised in your project bag.

Enjoy stitching Mini Cat and using the free floss holders below.

If you want to stitch something other than cats then pop over to these pages here for other Christmas cross stitching ideas.

Future plans

For quite a while now I have been thinking about uploading videos to my YouTube Channel, it is already set up but I have not posted any content yet. I am currently learning how to make videos! Lol…

I was thinking of showing some of my finishes and doing a few tutorials. Let me know if that is something you would like to see. Don’t expect to see my face as I am way too shy for that!

Until next time, Happy Stitching!
