Cold Hands Warm Heart Cross Stitch Redwork Band Sampler

With Winter still with us here in the Northern Hemisphere,  I'm delighted to introduce my newest cross stitch design called 'Cold Hands Warm Heart' which is a band sampler stitched in red thread upon a white background.  

It was inspired by a recent visit from my very special and long-time friend Jen to see us just before Christmas.  

I've dedicated this piece to her which reads as follows "Dedicated to Jen in memory of her trip to the UK in December 2022 to visit us.  Lovely memories of chilly days, yummy food, sparkly lights, lots of laughter, cosy times, snowy scenes, wooly warmers (and who can forget that special warm-itself-up jacket)".


Design details:

Cold Hands Warm Heart measures as follows
16 ct 102 x 236 Stitches (16.2 x 37.5 cm) (6.4 x 14.8 in.)
18 ct 102 x 236 Stitches (14.4 x 33.3 cm) (5.7 x 13.1 in.)
25 ct 102 x 236 Stitches (10.4 x 24.0 cm) (4.1 x 9.4 in.)

The model is shown as being stitched on white 16 count Aida fabric, with DMC thread.


You'll find it waiting for you to download as a PDF in my Etsy shop.

Celebrating Love

 

If you're looking for a cross stitch project to celebrate ❤️LOVE❤️ then my 'Treasured Love' design is perfect for Valentine's Day, a Silver Wedding Anniversary Celebration, Wedding Gift or in Memoriam of someone special. It's available for instant download in my Etsy shop.

Treasured Love is 96 x 96 stitches (6.9 x 6.9 inches) when stitched on 14 count cream Aida or 6 x 6 inches on 16 count. Thread used is DMC. 
 
An alphabet chart is not included in the chart pack because there is already a large library of cross stitch alphabets available online and in publications.
