CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY GALLIANA
An amusing Christmas Sampler, with plenty of fun details to "color in", part of Galliana's collection of customizable cross stitch charts designed to be stitched in any color combination you fancy.
Did you know Santa lived in a castle guarded by a toy soldier and a penguin? His sleigh is parked in front. On both sides of the monumental door are his coats of arms and well as those of Mrs Claus. Peak through the gothic windows and see the table is set for his return and the grandfather's clock about to strike midnight. A large banner hangs from the round towers: "Merry Christmas!"
Did you notice the large cracker also hidden in the design?
As for all Galliana designs, this chart is monochrome and can be stitched using any count of fabric & floss of your choice. It's up to you how the stitched piece will turn out as you can truly personalise the design either stitching it all in one colour, maybe use two contrasting colours, variegated flosses or even a whole range of different colours.
A Guide to Colors is included with the chart with suggestions of different ways to apply colors to designs.
If stitching with one colour on 28 count over 2 using 2 strands, you will require approx 11 skeins of 8 metre DMC or equivalent and the design area will be approx 15 3/4" x 20”.
