Item details

New for the winter of 2017, as a public release, "Winter Solstice"-
CROSS STITCH Pattern- Instant Download

This Is For The INSTANT DOWNLOAD Version. If you'd like the printed and mailed version- please visit that section of my shoppe....

This pattern is a computer generated version of one of my paintings- Winter Solstice. For the first time- I chose to release a pattern- without stitching the model, as time ran short for the season- and I didn’t want to wait another whole year 😊 So- with that in mind- the chart should go quite smoothly- as I”ve gone over it with a fine tooth comb, however- if you have any issues- by all means- please get in touch with me…

I charted this for 40 count- and suggested 2 over 2- for a thread count- to make sure that everyone gets enough thread- and doesn’t end up short- while stitching- however- if stitching on 40 count- usually- most prefer to stitch it one over 2. It’s really all a matter of preference… I am showing on the cover- the computer generated cross stitch view- photoshopped onto a nice background- so you can see what it might possibly look like stitched.. Then – of course- that all depends on what kind of linen you choose… I’ve also included a couple pictures- of my “Sepia Forest” Printed linen- on the cover- as I’m suggesting to everyone- that it would look just beautiful on this linen.. Of course- again- as always- your linen choices- are 100% yours and personal.. I love that about cross stitch!!! All of my printed linen is sold separate from my charts. You can find them right in my Etsy Shoppe!!!

Basic cross stitch x’s are used throughout this entire piece, as well as some back stitching, and a couple tiny French knots as noted on the chart.

One more note, as you get to the color chart/key, I highly suggest my favorite colors- shown- in the Gentle Arts Threads!!! I charted the design using DMC, and then marked down my Overdyed Thread choices next to the DMC colors. By all means- this is all yours and you, so have some fun with colors!!!

Finishing for this chart is entirely up to you…

Please note!!! I don’t wish for anyone to “adapt” this cross stitch pattern into any other pattern on their own, as it is my design and I will be releasing future patterns using this, including a punch needle design and possible a hooked rug pattern. If you’ve any questions regarding this- please do let me know….

Last thing, before you get stitching- is that if you’d like to order linens, threads, just send me an email, visit me online, and/or find me on facebook!!! I sell and carry almost all supplies used for each pattern I make…

And again- if you ever have any questions- please just get in touch with me!!!
Thanks So Much & Happy Stitching!!!

P>S>... If you are buying the instant download- and are printing.. I would recommend choosing custom print size- and 100%.. This way- it will fill your paper more- with less paper border...

If any questions- at all- PLEASE message me... I want HAPPY stitchers..

I really hope you enjoy!!!

Thanks So Much & Happy Stitching!!!
