Little angel with a candle free criss stitch pattern

It’s probably because of the heat wave we’re having, that I started making Christmas patterns 🙂 Pure logic! Anyway, this angel pattern is not only very easy, but also customizable, so feel free to use different colors for it.

Merry Christmas to all my readers!

“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.”

As I promised earlier, I am doing a series of angels patterns this winter. This one is bigger and more colorful than the previous blue angel, but is still very simple and is made with only 7 colors. I hope you’ll like it!

Small Maneki-neko chart

A Maneki-neko (the “beckoning cat” or the “welcoming cat”, typically a Japanese bobtail with calico coat and a very short tail) is a traditional Japanese symbol of good luck. You can often see it in shop windows or restaurants. It is believed that the right paw in welcoming gesture welcomes people while the left paw welcomes wealth and good luck.

Stitch yourself a meowing good luck charm!

Stitch count: 60W x 90H
Colors: 6

Traditional Russian church cross stitch chart

This pattern was inspired by a church in Rostov the Great – one of Russia’s small towns with long history. The church of the Savior on the Sands was build in 17th century and is a good example of Russian architecture of the period. I think that the chaste white walls of this church give a great impression of old Russian culture. They say that on the inside the church is decorated with beautiful paintings, but unfortunately tourists are not allowed in.

New Year star temari

Now that I started the Christmas and New Year theme in my previous post (Christmas patterns pack), let me show you the New Year temari that I made several months ago. It’s by far not my favorite ball, I tried a custom embroidery on it, and I feel it’s a bit too simplistic when opposed to the traditional five-star pattern (that looks a bit like Christmas poinsettia flower) made around the top of the mari.

But still I enjoy the eco feel of the wrapping thread and the way reds and greens give this ball a festive look. What do you think about it?

Christmas pack of cross stitch patterns

Do you enjoy Christmas season? To be honest I never knew what it’s like until my first visit to the US during December. Now I know that Christmas is not only presents and decorated trees, but also candles everywhere, a subtle smell of cinnamon, and infinite Christmas songs on every radio station (Let it snow, let it snow. let it….). Oh, we do have all of that back home, but quite in a different degree 🙂

If you want to make something special for this Christmas, try decorating the presents (or anything else) with the patterns from my Christmas pack. The patterns in this pack are small and simple, and suitable for nearly every surface you can cross stitch on. There are four patterns in this pack: holly with red berries, Christmas tree, a present with ribbon and a poinsettia. (Click More to download)

And yes, it is never too early to start preparations for The Season!
