NEW Christmas Patterns

Merry Monday to you my Friends!!

Here are my 2 new cross stitch patterns
for the Holidays...

the one below is called
"Merry Yule"
and I finished it into a sawdust-filled pinkeep with my own
hand-dyed rickrack stitched around the finished edge...
it was stitched onto 28ct linen that I stained with walnut dye
and it measures approx. 7" x 5 1/2"
(I don't have the stitch count yet but will post that soon)
the motifs include a holly-filled basket, snowflakes, a berried vine and the words Merry Yule.

The one below is called
"Feeding the Reindeer"
I had a great time stitching this one...it is so very simple and plain...
I also played a little bit with the finish, as you can see I added brown repro fabric to the bottom of the finished piece as it was too small for the frame I painted...
I LOVE how it looks!
it depicts a sweet Angel feeding a reindeer, a dove, the date 1856 & a partial alphabet.

it too was stitched onto 28ct linen that I stained with my walnut dye...the finished sampler including the fabric on the bottom measures approx. 8" x 10" (frame opening) & I will have the stitch count for this one too...the frame was hand painted & distressed by me, and will be available for your finished sampler if you choose to frame it as I have...

Both patterns are $10.00 each
I gladly combine shipping so you can order both for $21.50
the frame is $25.00 + $5.00 priority shipping.

email me at not4got@aol.com if you'd like to place an order for them ~
and my paypal address is

the frames and patterns will also be listed in my etsy shop this aft,

and on my website.

I hope you enjoy them!

blessings from the farm,
