Christmas tree cottage
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY GAIL BUSSI, ROSEBUD LANE
This piece will keep you counting the days till Christmas. The focal point is a fine country cottage, snug and cosy in the snowy landscape, a welcoming wreath on the door. The pattern is framed with a lovely garland of holly and Christmas roses.
You can stitch the pattern as it is or compose your own welcoming message using the alphabet. Dont hesitate to reuse some of the elements (the cottage, the trees) for Xmas cards and Xmas decoration around the house.
This pattern includes pearlescent highlights with Kreinik Very fine braid and Blending filament. You may alternatively use the white pearlescent floss in the DMC Light effects range.
The piece is designed to be stitched on pale blue evenweave. However the designer suggests it could also be stitched on a cream or ivory fabric.
