Christmas Cocktail Cross Stitching

My sister quilted me a fun pink, white and lime green table runner. So I designed some pieces to match it. The patterns are in the 2019 A Cross Stitch Christmas Book from Craftways.

I stitched two of them on Pink Lady Aida and two on Tropical Green Aida, both from Wichelt. I added Mill Hill beads and Kreinik threads for sparkle.

Snowy Church Cross Stitch

This pattern was inspired by The Little Brown church which I attended as a kid. I spent a lot of time scooting under the pews, and creating my own underground passages, with only legs and feet of fellow churchgoers to interfere with my journeys.

This pattern is stitched on 16 ct Water Lily Aida by Wichelt and is available in the 2018 released book, A Cross-Stitch Christmas published by Craftways.
