The first 2 are Lizzie Kate's. They're just fun and festive pieces to work on during the holidays.
This next one is Fresh Fallen Snow by Little House Needlworks from the 2011 Just Cross Stitch magazine. It's stitched with DMC 3865 and GA's Forrest Glade. Loved the colors. I just wish these designs (a general sweeping statement about the ornament issue) were proofed a little better. There were 2 mistakes.... I caught one and didn't notice the other until I was done. The sample in the magazine is done correctly so SOMEONE had the correct pattern. (The first mistake is that one of the snow flakes in the lower left is charted with the wrong symbol. The second is in the bottom right snow flake. There is an extra stitch in the part that would point to 1:00 on a clock. I declined to pick it out and fix it.)
this one with interest. I really like watching people stitch large pieces. There once was a time when that's ALL I DID. I have many large patterns in my 'to be stitched' basket and fully intend to invest the time in stitching them. First, I'd like to feel like I have less in that basket so I don't feel pressured to work, work, work on finishing things.
I hope I don't drive you all nuts with too many background changes. This has proven to be a hard time of year to settle on one design. This newest one is labeled as a Christmas one but, in my neck of the woods, snow and a few red berries will be about all there is to see out the windows.
