Some Christmas stitching

Last week I decided to do some Christmas stitching. This gingerbread boy design will be for my youngest niece. It was a quick stitch from the 2012 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament magazine.

Sweet Hugs Gingerbread Boy - Keepsake Stitches
Fabric: 32ct Belfast Flax linen
Threads: Suggested DMC and DMC alternatives
I also started 'Silent Night' by Country Cottage Needleworks. I love how the thread colours show up on this fabric. The fabric, threads and chart were a Secret Santa gift from Jennifer at The Stitch Specialists in 2012. This will now be my Wednesday Parlour night stitching at Needlecraft Haven.

  1. It's never too early to start your Christmas stitching. Such a sweet finish. And nice start on the next.

  2. I love the little gingerbread man, so sweet :-)
    Lovely start on Silent Night, and i agree, the colours are lovely on that fabric.

    I think it's about time i did some Christmas stitching too.

  3. Very pretty Christmas stitching, Mary! I love stitching Christmas pieces year round :)
