Summer is the perfect time to start your Christmas cross stitch… there’s plenty of light and plenty of time until the big day!
And as well as getting into the Christmas spirit nice and early , You can pat yourself on the back for being super organised! A win all round!😁
So treat yourself and join me in a stitchalong of this absolutely beautiful Advent Sampler, from Italian designer, Crocette a gogo.
This printed pattern booklet is for a 33x58cm Advent panel, featuring 24 small designs and a larger panel for the 25th Dec… You could also stitch these as individual decorations / smaller designs if you prefer.
Materials required – This pattern is stitched with 2 strands of DMC stranded cotton, in 23 different colours, on 32 count Belfast Linen. You can also stitch it on 16ct Aida if you prefer, as this will be easier to see. Most colours require just 1 skein however, some use more.. you will need 28 skeins in total.
