After not finishing my Halloween 2013 cross stitch project in time for Halloween 2014… I decided to start my Christmas 2015 cross stitch in good time. I’m using Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery’s 12 Days of Christmas Sampler pattern. I enjoy Christmas carols so much*, I just had to! I also like how the border of this one is in the same style as the Halloween 2013 sampler. I’m actually planning on turning both finished cross stitches into cushion covers, that will hopefully fit on the same cushion. That will involve a wee bit of math, as this one is bigger than the Halloween one, and a bit more rectangular than square. I plan on adding sashing to each one to make up the difference. I’ve even got the Halloween fabrics bought already, but I want to wait to actually sew anything until the stitching is done on this one, so I can make sure I got my sums right.
The plan is to have both covers done in time for their respective seasons this year!
Oh, and the disembodied pug face is an eyeglasses case that I’m storing the floss for this project in. So cute! And it won’t drool on my stitching.
*I enjoy carols so much that I’m going to change the ‘Rat-a-tat’ in the pattern for the 12 drummers drumming square to ‘Rum-pa-pum’ because YES. Come they told me!
