Christmas cross stitch season

Hello Friends!

Is it Christmas cross stitch season yet? Probably as there are only 6 weeks or so left till Christmas.  Have I given you a fright ?  Hopefully not.  If we take a deep breath it will all be fine.:)

Given there are only six weeks it’s probably time to think about making a few Christmas cross stitch related gifts and treats.  One of my favourite things to make are cross stitch gift tags for each person’s “special” present.  I was inspired last week to design a series of gifts tags to share with you.  Best of all I thought you might like one of the gifts tag charts for free to get you started.

The journey to create this very simple chart started last Saturday morning.  From sitting at the computer to stitching the chart outside in the afternoon sun. The design is stitched on 28ct Natural Linen with two strands of DMC white cotton. Best of all it took me less than half an hour to stitch!  The photo shows the chart decorated with a small red bead for interest.  This is optional and entirely up to you. I will also show you how to transform the chart into a gift tag later this week.  The remaining five charts will be revealed to you very soon too.

If you like the chart why not download it by clicking “HERE”

May your Christmas preparations go smoothly and happily :)

Take care
