House of Christmas
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY GALLIANA
A fun Christmas Sampler - dollshouse style - part of Galliana's collection of customizable cross stitch charts designed to be stitched in any color combination you fancy. In this particular stitched example (photo) some items were selected to be stitched in color for extra focus, while the main structure of the house remained in solid brown.
Indeed the main focus is on the red Merry Christmas banner and the welcoming red door, surrounded by green topiary and yellow lanterns. Additional colors are used in light touches throughout the house guiding us upstairs towards the Christmas tree on the second floor. Fireplaces glow with red and golden flames. The eye finally wanders towards the roof, illuminated by a row of golden lights. A red gift is ready on the windowsill of one of the attic windows. Did you notice that pair of eyes peering out of the other window?
As with 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 12 skeins of 8metre DMC or equivalent and the design area will be approx 15.25” x 19”
