I have been looking at my Christmas stitching lately, and realised that I don’t have anything that I could put on display! I have some wonderful stitched ornaments that always go on the tree, but nothing else. So I decided to have a look around the shop to see what I had that I could stitch in time for Christmas, and came up with the following designs:-
I love many of the designs by Blackbird Designs, so one of the first items I have come across is their “Merry December” mini stocking booklet. Consisting of 3 different stockings, you could easily start one now and finish it in time for Christmas.
One of my closest friends, Annemiek from the store De Handwerk Boetiek and the blog Once Upon a Stitch, loves the Santa designs by the Prairie Schooler. I must admit, I do too. These could easily be stitched in time for Christmas – if you stick at it. I started mine in 2003. Unfortunately, at this point in time, Santa only has one leg (if my memory serves me correctly).
Whilst on the subject of Prairie Schooler, any of the Holly Days ornaments could also be stitched and finished in time for Christmas. One of the things I love about Prairie Schooler is the fact that you only need to use DMC floss!
Whilst on the subject of ornaments, there is a massive choice of ornaments in the 2011 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments issue. Packed full of projects from various well known designers, you will be referring to this publication for years to come.
Finally, one of my favourite designers of all. At least for the simple things. How do I choose a Lizzie Kate project? I think I will go with the full kit of Fa La La. Hmmm, in fact, I might grab a copy of this project tomorrow and start stitching it so I can add it to our
family, um, the shop Christmas decorations by Christmas!
So what are your quick stitch Christmas projects?
