It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

It's that time of year again. The air is cooler, the leaves are turning and everything seems to be flavored with pumpkin spice. That must mean that the JBW Christmas designs have been released! So without further ado, I present this year's Christmas collection. As always, contact your local stitching shop to purchase the charts.

First up is Joyeux Noel #336 - The third design in a series of white on red Christmas designs. It has been stitched over one thread on #28 Christmas Red linen using DMC Snow White (B5200). Stitch count: 89W x 107H.

Little Red Sleds #337 - Three designs are included in this leaflet and can be stitched either over two threads on #32 Antique White Belfast linen for the larger sleds or over one on #28 White Jobelan for the small sleds. Models were stitched using Classic Colorworks and Gentle Arts threads. (Sleds have been spray painted red).
Stitch Count: Noel - 10 W x 45 H; Christmas Village - 19 W x 54 H; Joy - 15 W x 52 H

Sing A Song of Christmas IV-VI - The next three designs in a series depicting well known Christmas songs. Each design has been finished as a stocking ornament. All three were stitched on #32 Belfast linen Latte using Classic Colorworks, Weeks Dye Works and Kreinik threads.
