On her way to a Christmas party

 

It's snowing as this young woman makes her way down the street, warmly clad in a red coat under which we can guess an elegant dress. She's carrying several gifts one of which is a teddy bear.

This lovely Christmas scene, combining cross stitch and beadwork, is designed by Shannon Christine Wasilieff of Shannon Christine designs.

Old fashioned Christmas

 

How about getting rid of all the glamour and glitter and returning to the simple joys of Christmas? When each child only received one but - oh so treasured -  toy, when Christmas trees were simply lit with candles, and when the family would gather around the chimney place in front of a warm fire.

Designer Faby Reilly captures those simple joys of Christmas in these two lovely projects with the same centre piece featuring a Victorian Christmas scene.

The first pattern is an ornament that stands or can be hung.

Christmas Joy on a green background

 

Susan R. kindly sent us a picture of her latest project, a beautiful version of Barbara Ana's Chrismas Joy on green linen.

In the original piece stitched by Barbara Ana on Vintage Country Mocha from Zweigart, the white motifs blend softly in the background and the red motifs stand out by contrast.

In Susan's piece, the motif is stitched on green linen which emphasizes the white motifs in the background and the design turns out overall quite different. Below are the two versions side by side for you to compare. Aren't they both lovely? Congratulations Susan for stitching such a beautiful piece!

The 12 days of Christmas, have inspired many a designer. We must say however that we are particularly impressed Lesley Teare's interpretation in cross stitch of this old Christmas carol. The design seems to capture all the poetry of the song's mysterious first verse.
