CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles
Can you hear the red cardinal sing its yuletide song?
This cross stitch piece features the bird perched on a dark branch covered with snow. Red berries peak under the white layer. It is already dark. A full moon shines in the distance. Overall there is an impression of serenity and peace.
The design is kept simple and uncluttered, with the focus on the bird. The branches and text are beautifully balanced around it. This is an elegant and decorative work, discreetly evocative of Christmas, and which you can display in your home during the whole winter season.
The piece is cross stitched on a blue background fabric, over two threads. There are details in backstitch and an extra series of numbers is provided for personalizing your work with the date it was stitched.
