Some of My Craftings

Thursday, December 08, 2011

Just stopping by briefly today to post about a sweet cross-stitch freebie I came across. It was stitched on linen using DMC threads - 304, 349,415, 433, 435, 699, 702, 838, 977, 3799, 3865 - and finished as an ornament. I think its just gorgeous!  Here is the chart too! This little pattern is from Gazette94.  She has over 120 free patterns, so get a cup of hot apple cider, sit down, relax, and have fun browsing through her
patterns.  There is an adorable cross-stitch of a sweet kiss under the mistletoe!  I hope you are all having a great time getting ready for Christmas!


  1. That is a beautiful piece, I have never seen that one.


  2. Your birdie came out beautifully :) Gazette94 is one of my favorite places for nice x-stitch patterns too.

  3. Oh that little bird is right up my alley! you did a great job too!!

  4. How sweet! i was just thinking I needed a robin in my Christmas decorating!
    Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. What a find! So many good designs, especially cats! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Thank you very much for the sweet little ornament and cross stitch freebie. Your finish is very pretty.
    Warm Holiday Wishes,

  7. Thanks for sharing this! Very, very, sweet....One of these days I hope to have time for stitching again! Happy, happy, Friday! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  8. Thanks for your kind comments on my blog.
    Sitting home by the woodstove surrounded by cats and needle work is my favorite way to pass the winter.
    Love the ornament! Will have to check out the rest of them.

    I got the biggest laugh from the song in your header!!! The cats sure do bring joy to my world!!!

  9. I just happened upon your blog, and saw your amusing Christmas song for cats. Would you mind if I print it out and stick it on the wall by my kitties' dishes (with the name of your blog on the back, of course!)? Our Christmas Eve guests are also cat lovers, so they will enjoy your song as well!

    Merry Christmas from one cat lover to another...

  10. Thanks for letting us know about 'Gazette94'. I will definately check that out.
    I love how you cut out around the design instead of just putting it on a square block. So Cute!
    Happy Holidays!
