Frosty Friends - Dimension

Hello peeps, Justine has informed me her Christmas package has been safely delivered, so I can now share with you a sweet little finish I made for her. My little surprise box included various Christmas goodies and also a handmade cross stitch finish. Design chosen from Frosty Friends Dimension
This is a super cute kit of 6 Christmas ornaments based on Stacey Yacula's beautiful artwork After great difficulty in making my mind up, I opted to get stitching on Snowy Days! Stitched on the provided 16ct light blue Aida fabric & threads Worked 2 over 1 It took me AGES to finish it!!! These are small designs but are so detailled I made a small change and decided to stitch the background snowflakes using sparkly Kreinik thread instead of the charted plain white
Finished off as a flat ornament using beaded trim & a green bell from my stash

Hello Peeps

I have been away far too long!
I honestly have been busy stitching away on various projects.
Secret ones, planned ones...

Here is a small one I can share with you.


He's a Flake
All Dolled Up! Series
From Little House Needleworks

Stitched on Sew It All 16ct Aida fabric, flint colour
(which is obviously grey & not brown like my pictures!)
Worked 2 over 1, using DMC threads and replaced use of Mill Hill beads for sparkly Kreinik thread
 I initially won the chart from CJ a long time ago
and promised I'd pass on the chart once I'd stitched it.

So, if you too would like to stitch this small snowman,
please leave a comment on this post only saying so.

If there are more than one stitcher interested, I will randomly pick a name.

Winner will be announced in my next post, so stay tuned!

I am happy to post the chart worldwide but cannot guarantee you will receive it
before Christmas as the Royal Mail is always busy at this time of the year.
