12 Days of Christmas

I hope you’re not tired of Christmas!

My first finish for the new year!

A free design by Plum Street Samplers – Sunday Mystery Sampler / 12 Days of Christmas.
Stitched on Picture This Plus, 36 count Wren Edinburgh Linen with DMC, Weeks Dye Works and The Gentle Art threads.

I picked some of my favourite colours, like the red – cranberry and the green – bullfrog. Since I had some requests about the colours that I used, here is my thread list:

DMC 310
Weeks Dye works – 2202 Bullfrog
The Gentle Art: Sampler Threads – 0360 Cranberry
The Gentle Art: Sampler Threads – 0420 Gold Leaf
The Gentle Art: Sampler Threads – 0630 Peach Ice Cream
The Gentle Art: Simply Shaker- 7013 Green Apple

If you want to stitch this piece use your favourite Christmas colours, you can also take a look at the Just Cross Stitch July/August 2011 and Just Cross Stitch Magazine 2012 – Christmas Ornament Preview, the first and second day are on the magazine and you will be abble to see the colours used. I did the first and second day into ornaments and I stiched both with the recommend DMC colours.

Have a wonderful day! Happy stitching,


Review 2017

Hello! My first post of the year is my 2017 review!

My cross stitch pieces:

And now my punch needle pieces:

You can also see them here.

I have two works in progress from last year, the first one is the stitch-a-long by Maryse – Sampler Antique (sorry I noticed that I don’t have an update on this sampler since May of last year… but I have on my Instagram account) and the project 12 Days of Christmas by Plum Street Samplers. My plan is keep stitching the 12 Days of Christmas, I need to stitch more two bloks and I will make a post with the finish piece! Besides that I don’t have any stitching plans for 2018.

Have a lot of fun with your stitching during this new year! Wishing you a great 2018!

Thanks for visiting!

Happy stitching,
