Only once the final show of the year, Knitting and Stitching in Harrogate, is finished do I start thinking about Christmas and it is the perfect time to say a little thank you to everyone who has supported my tiny needlework business over the past year.
This year I have been inspired to design some Christmas baubles on perforated paper stitched in a combination of cross stitch and seed beads. If I had been a little more organised I would have started work on these back in the summer but as it turns out I began stitching about two weeks ago! By some miracle my mother and I have managed to get a few finished and although there are no kits yet I would love to share one of the patterns with you and hope you have some bits and bobs in your stash that you can put to good use.
The sample shown was stitched on 14count, the finished size is approximately 9cm x 7cm and can be stitched in about four hours, so you should be able to make it in time for Christmas….. and if you are a particularly speedy stitcher then why not make a few in different colours to create a garland?

Happy Christmas, Emma Pavier
