I have always loved the rustic, cottagey, wintery feel of the colors blue, brown and white together. Throw in a touch of red, and you have the perfect winter palette. My inspiration piece for this was a mixed media piece of little cottages hanging from a branch. I had so much fun designing and stitching this fun winter cross stitch pattern, and I hope you do, too!
After hearing Jean Farish talk about Cosmo on one of her Flosstube videos, it got me curious about the floss and I decided to start working with it. This is the second in a series of designs that will be charted in Cosmo floss. I have also provided the DMC conversion, but I do encourage you to give Cosmo a try. I used two strands of Cosmo floss in this design, and I love it even more! You can find the Cosmo floss pack for this design at Fat Quarter Shop.
This design uses 7 colors of floss.
