Winter Cross Stitch
Hi friends, you all know I love to get crafty and one of my favorite ways to get some creative time is through cross stitch. You can always find really cute patterns, such as the one I am going to show you today.
This cross stitch pattern is from Country Cottage Needleworks and I thought it would absolutely perfect to share with you all this winter.
Winter is a time of cuddling up, getting cozy in your home, and sitting fireside with hot drinks and one way to spend your winters to give you that ‘cozy winter feel’ is by making this darling cross stitch pattern that Nikki Leeman created.
The colors, the snow, and the words she chose made this cross stitch a lot of fun to create.
Today instead of doing a tutorial, I’m going to allow the photos to bring you along to share my winter inspiration. I want to keep things simple and give you a peek inside the winter themed cross stitch I made.
Let’s get started.
The supplies I used were Country Cottage Needleworks Pattern found here, DMC floss in colors recommended on the pattern, a needle and needle threader, a small pair of scissors, and 28 count linen-white.
I did the top half first, then moved onto the words below, and finally the branches and leaves on the edges.
I actually lost the adorable charms that were supposed to be attached on the cross stitch as well, but hopefully, I will find them someday and be able to add them then.
I chose to do the pattern on white linen, therefore, the white thread is harder to see on camera. The words snowmen and snowflakes are more visible in person, along with the snowflakes falling on the home at the top.
And this is the finished piece.
I truly enjoyed making this cross stitch. When you finish a piece like this one, it really becomes something you can treasure and hang up in your home for the winter seasons every year.
The pattern, colors, and handmade touch just make this adorable cross stitch a perfect touch of a cozy winter to your home.
I have fallen so much in love with this pattern and I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my latest project.
