good afternoon! Hopefully you have started Christmas shopping…i’m still in process of actually getting started.
I do have a new Christmas project kitted and ready to go…just in time for your stocking, under your tree, or work on it as you sit next to the tree soaking up all the pine and good Christmas feels.
Cozy Quilter’s Christmas Tree pillow by Crabapple Hill Studio hit my “Must Make” list in October/November…it arrived and i knew i had to make it. I tend to do more embroidery and cross stitch around the Christmas…
Well, this year i picked this delightfully sweet pillow to whip up, and we have finally finished up the sawtooth and star borders and put on a backing.
I’m all heart eyes for this lovely bit of Christmas cheer. As a rule i prefer Christmas but not “Christmas-y” colors…i love a good blue and white quilt or pink and mint…something not so traditional. So when i picked these prints i surprised even myself.
Look at those Holly Taylor colors…cranberry red and sage-y green…love it! The background is the little tan braid print on white from Good Tidings by Brenda Riddle. I even did a little bit of crayon tinting then stitched it using hand-dyed cotton threads from Gentle Art and Classic Colorworks. A perfect blend of classic yet up-to-date.
We have this lovely kitted (just 3 ready-to-ship)…kits include pattern, all the fabrics for the front, tuck, and back (stitchery backing and batting not included), hand-dyed cotton threads, along with Foxglove Cottage embroidery needles, Pigma Pen, and Needle Bird needle threader…so when this package of quilty embroidery bliss arrives you are set to stitch. Click here to nab a kit…
Have a wonderful weekend…hopefully you can find a moment to get some stitching in!
