Tis the Season Christmas 2020 - A Little Gem Cross Stitch design (PDF)

 Nicola has generously made these gorgeous Little Gems available for download now via our store.  The PDF will be emailed to you within 24 hours or you can choose a printed copy.

Hands Across the Sea Samplers are delighted to offer, as a Little Gem pdf download, four Christmas ornaments ~ Christmas Time, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Peace

The design is suitable for needleworkers of all levels of ability. The stitches used are cross stitch over 2 threads and back stitch. Christmas Time, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Peace have been stitched with a palette of thirteen colours from DMC which are noted below. In this time of supply shortages, the Christmas ornaments have been designed, so that you can pull colours from your own “stash.” You could consider adding beads, charms, or metallic threads to embellish the motifs.

If stitching all four ornaments on 36ct fabric with 2 threads of DMC, one skein should be sufficient.
