A complimentary pattern from Brooke's Books website. I altered it slightly and used 2 colours instead of just one solid floss stencilling. Not sure what I'm going to finish this as.

This year I'm aiming to be as inexpensive as possible with my stitch selections - so I'm finding plenty of freebies, tackle WIPs and start the bookmarked patterns in my collection of magazines.

This cute songster snowman is a free chart from Plum Pudding Needle Art website.

This is the 1st in the Animal Advent series of ornaments I will be doing this year for myself. There's not too many colours on the list for the 10 patterns currently being offered on Brooke's website so I hope to have them done by the end of this month.

Elf

I do a lot of stitching at work & a customer cheekily asked where his piece was at. This was my Christmas answer.

I chose to stitch this bovine on sparkly white aida to give the impression of being sky bound.

A Celtic Cross from the book "Celtic Cross Stitch: over 40..."

I switched up the colours to an 800 series to give it a more earthy tone instead of the cold stone colours it called for.
Unsure on how I want to finish this.

A bookmark as per my "sneaky return" with my Lost Wife library book.
As the characters often wound up eating molded bread I changed out the white to a moss green.

This pattern is found in the book titled "Sabbat Entertaining".

This bottle whale can be found in September 2013's Cross Stitcher Magazine Issue 270.

Another bookmark for my 'sneaky library return'. I hope the bookmarks are actually bringing whimsy to the next in line reader.

From the book "Celtic Cross Stitch: over 40...." By Anne Orr and Leslie Clarke.

The wrong colour key was given for this project so it gives the finished product a more cold stone look (using 600's grey tones) instead of the warmer look of that illustrated in the actual book (which probably used the 800's brown/taupe tones). When I go to stitch the larger cross later on I shall use the latter for key codes.

Pattern is found in Issue 154 of World of Cross Stitiching magazine.
I like reading and we have only a small library so many of our books need to come upon request from other small town libraries. This bookmark was made to accompany a certain book and upon returning the book - I also included this gift, tucked inside the pages for the next reader to use.

My husband requested his bday cross stitch be of something with autumn coloured trees because his favorite time was our wedding (which happened in the fall).

It's a 1989 leaflet (#3 - of the Four Seasons Series).

The pattern itself is missing stitches that it shows in the cover display. I just followed the pattern without adding the corrections.

Stitched for my MIL's birthday, this has all of the grand children's names and dates of birth in each of the hearts. I added a charm that says '#1 Grandma' on it (at the suggestion of my husband) to the empty heart space. Originally I was just going stitch the word "reserved" into it until either my one of my Sister in laws had another baby. ;)

Pattern can be found in Issue 177 of Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine (June 2013)

My dad came up with a little ditty he wanted displayed in one of his outhouses on the acreage for when family come to camp. I looked through many different magazine prints I had and couldn't find the perfect image I wanted to us to go along with it so I had to craft this little bum warmer myself using my PCStitch program.
