Christmas 2021 Mystery chart
SAL - Subscription
CROSS STITCH PATTERN RELEASED IN SUCCESSIVE PARTS
Join the fun with Barbara Ana's new SAL!
Exclusive to Creative Poppy, the Christmas 2021 Mystery chart SAL will be revealed in 3 successive parts, with a new cross stitch chart published every 2 weeks in the run up to Xmas.
Hint: Barbara Ana has released some pretty interesting Dreaming Girls this year. Will there be one for Christmas?
The cross stitch pattern lists 11 DMC floss colors and 1 gold metallic from the Kreinik range. It is designed to be stitched on a medium-dark blue/grey, such as 32 count Murano (Lugana) evenweave from Zweigart, in color Colonial Blue (522).
The design can also be stitched on a neutral color fabric of your choice such as Belfast dirty linen (326).
A third option is a festive print: Zweigart Belfast grey/silver stars print (7459). It's a slate grey with tiny silver stars printed that will provide a sharper contrast with the snowy white atmosphere and look cute and Christmassy in the background.
Once finished, the design measures 6 1/2 inch x 4 1/2 inch (16.7 cm x 11.5 cm). It is designed for a square frame (7" x 7" - 18 cm x 18cm) where the base of the stitching is aligned with the lower part of the frame and there is plenty of space above for the "sky". Positionning instructions are included in the chart so that you can't get it wrong.
