Fa la la la la la la la la

That’s obviously Deck the Halls! Once upon a time before patch-working I was crazily addicted to cross-stitch and embroidery. Yesterday I got the urge to cross-stich so I quickly drafted a plan for a basic garland and stitched it up in no time.

I used a gorgeous check from Loominous by Anna Maria Horner as the background and perle thread for the stitching. I have to admit I love the simple effect. Because I’m feeling rather generous I’ve put the chart on Payhip as a free download so anyone can have a go if they fancy it.

I’m currently stitching up an embroidered version using bullion knots and other bulky stitches to get a bit of texture. I’m also waiting on some ridiculously tiny embroidery hoops to arrive and I intend to fill them with mini embroideries to put on the Christmas tree so expect to see more free downloads in the near future.

 Catch you soon x
