holiday cross stitch

November 11, 2010

The countdown to holiday decorating and giving is in progress and cross stitch is definitely part of the repertoire.

The fleur-de-lis is a gift for a friend who hails from Louisiana and fills her home with these pretty flourishes.

The personalized ornament is a gift for a friend with a young child (named Luke, of course).

And the reverse side of both is the same, my own simple tree pattern with the alternating stitch sizes. 

I don’t follow any cross stitching blogs since I am a true novice and create my own simplistic patterns.  But I did stumble across this interesting blog and I love her creations!  Check out Sharon’s Cross Stitch Obsession.  She is very imaginative.

    It is such an honor to receive Luke’s ornament. It is precious, meaningful and priceless! Thank you Diane!
