“Wintery Word Play”
Cross Stitch Pattern Packet
A Collab Design With My Sister- Tammy Wilcox 😊
Let me introduce- my newest pattern- “Winter Word Play”. I am thrilled to have this done and ready for your wintery stitching pleasure!!! This design was not just a Kaniki’s production- rather a colab with my sister Tammy… I kept asking everyone for wintery ideas- so that I could narrow my focus down on some I could actually get done- and everyone kept sending me ideas- and I now have a HUGE list of stuff to create.. However- my sister- who also designs and quilts and embroiders and all that good stuff- as well as stitching too- sent me almost what you see here in this final pattern.. She had done up a list of wintery words and images in her embroidery software- and sent it my way. In turn- I added and changed some stuff- in my cross stitch software- and added my twist to the overall design!!! Sooo- between the two of us- and some software tweaking of the pattern- Ta Da!!! We have what you see here- Wintery Word Play!!! Soooo- or should I say- Snooowwww Much Fun!!! I sure do hope you love this one!!!
Now- this pattern is charted for 2 strands- 2 over 2, on 36 count. You can choose whichever you like as I know we all have a preference. The colors and symbols are clear and easy to follow and you can just pick your favorites- linen and threads and just have some fun.
Basic cross stitch x’s are used throughout this entire piece, as well as some back stitching, as noted on the chart. This was completely charted in DMC- and all colors picked to stitch in DMC. However- I’ve picked my favorite suggested threads- that are complimenting colors that will lend to a “painterly look” by giving shadows and highlights throughout the piece, but by all means- this is all yours and you, so have some fun with colors!!!
And there are the basics!!! The rest is up to you- and by all means- Enjoy each and every stitch!!
Now for the stuff I always need to add into my pattern packets-- 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. However- if you wish to stitch this using Lori Brechlin’s ( Notforgotten Farm ) way of doing Un-Counted cross stitch- you definitely may. If you’ve any questions regarding this- please do let me know…. Or you can visit her group https://www.facebook.com/groups/378705032792887/ and find out more. It’s not a Freebie group- but a group to learn and share a new way of stitching freely.
Last thing, before you get stitching is do let me know if you need anything!!!!
Thanks So Much & Happy Stitching!!!
