You know you’re a stitcher when…
When I get bored, I start browsing 123stitch. I love to scroll through the new patterns or browse different categories of patterns to see what catches my eye. Am I the only one who does this?
So, I was looking at winter patterns and started noticing various design trends, including the number of rabbits that appear in winter cross-stitch scenes. Here are a few of my favorites:
Top Left: “Christmas Joy Ride” by Carriage House Samplings
I have seen “Christmas Joy Ride” finished. A woman in my guild stitched it, and it is even more stunning in person. I love the colors in this one.
Top Right: “Hares Winter” by Plum Street Samplers
Bottom Left: “Frosty Forest 4: Frosty Friends” by Country Cottage Needleworks
I love the whole Frosty Forest series — so cute.
Bottom Right: “Cardinal Winter” by Little House Needleworks
This one includes another popular subject for winter designs — cardinals. Their bright red feathers provide a welcome pop of color during the often dreary winter months.
I love seasonal designs, but maybe I should start looking ahead to spring instead. I might have a chance of finishing some Easter stitching if I start now…
