I know it has been a while since I last posted. I wanted to pop in and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season.
For my cat and dog lovers I have two 2018 calendars, one a cat calendar and the second a dog coloring calendar. The dog calendar is in honor of Year of the Dog. A little trivia, 2018 is Year of the Dog in the Chinese Zodiac.
First I have a darning stitch, this stitch was diagrammed several years ago. I don’t have a stitched sample for this but it is a smaller stitch and would be lovely as a background. Enjoy and if you stitch a sample I would love to see it, so send me an email 😁
Have fun with this little stitch.
This second stitch is a Tweed Stitch Variation, very similar to last months Snowflake stitch. I thought it would be a nice follow-up. This shows how to adapt the snowflake stitch to make a completely different pattern.
I can see this stitch lightly stitched up for a sky. If you use heavier thread such as Planet Earth’s Pepper Pot, or 3-4 plies of silk, it would make lovely garments. Give dimension by making the cross stitch a little lighter in weight by using Petite Silk Lame.
Here are a few 2018 Calendars for you to use.
Cat lovers this one is for you. 😺
Dog lovers here is a 2018 Year of the Dog calendar.🐶
Some coloring calendars to help and De-stress!
All the little Tigers are doing well and getting into trouble occasionally, Tango gets chased on a regular basis by the girls (Stimpy & Noe). Beardie is staying warm in her heated condo and coming into the house for Breakfast and treats.
In my world, back surgery went well, but I am still recovering. I will be back to posting in the New Year 2018! Until then have a fantastic holiday and stitch a little for me! 😸
