Victorian Christmas Lady
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Shannon Christine Designs
Here's the Victorian Christmas lady, Shannon Christine Designs' portrait in cross stitch of an elegant young lady strolling down a street at Christmas time.
Snow is falling and starting to cover the ground. A lampost sheds a bit of light in the dark. The lady is elegantly clad in a fur lined winter coat, her head protected from the cold with a large hood. She's wearing two layers of skirts, one lined with a large band and a Christmas rose motif. The second layer is green satin lined with a red satin ribbon and embellished with beadwork.
The young lady is carrying a teddy bear - maybe a gift for a child? - as well as a box wrapped with green ribbon. She is obviously on her way to a party.
Shannon Christine's work is an interesting mix of needlework and beading. Her cross stitch charts are remarkably clear to follow. She provides both a color chart and a black and white version where the beadwork and backstitch stand out in color by contrast with the cross stitch and are therefore real easy to read.
