As Promised!!! ~ NEW Christmas Designs!

The first Christmas design shown below is called "Christmas Fun" to go along with our "Halloween Fun" released just a bit earlier. These designs are so quick and easy to stitch you're done in no time at all! Stitch the designs all together or stitch them separately and make ornaments. We used Picture This hand-dyed 28 Ct. "Relic" Cashel linen. (Our photo color on the fabric isn't quite what it actually looks like but kinda close! Photos are very tricky!!! We try our best.) The design size of the combined piece is 83 H x 65 W. Each ornament design is approximately 2 1/4" x 2 3/4". We used Weeks Dye Works Wool fabric to back the ornaments. Gentle Art Sampler Threads were used for stitching. We used frame #OLK-HED from East Side Mouldings.

Next we have an addition to our Celtic Collection, "Celtic Christmas". The stitch count of this design is 170 H x 104 W. We used 30 Ct. R&R "Antique Cotton" linen and The Thread Gatherer "In The Burgundy" silk floss along with Rainbow Gallery PB01 Treasure Braid. The rich Burgundy and metallic gold give this design an extra-festive flair. The framing was done by our wonderful local framer, "Frame Warehouse"!
