Free Christmas Ornament Pattern

I haven't been very chatty lately.  Due to my current circumstances, I'm just keeping myself busy.

With Christmas just around the corner, I thought you would enjoy this free cross stitch ornament pattern:

It's a quick stitch project that can be used as ornaments or, if you're a crazy quilter, you can do something similar to this project:

I made this for my cousin over the Summer.  The cross stitch piece is worked on 14 Aida and appliqued to the crazy quilt block with fusible web.

The little bird on a snowflake would make a really pretty Crazy Quilt Winter pillow!!

Cross Stitch Mystery Stitch Alongs

You may remember that I've done quite a few cross stitch mystery stitch alongs over the years!

These are my 2 most recent ones:

And here a couple of my older ones:

I'm planning on doing some more stitch alongs so I'm asking for your suggestions.  What themes or colors would you like to see in upcoming cross stitch mysteries?

Please post your suggestions in the comments and I will make a list to work from!  2019 is going to be a fun year here on my blog!!!!

If anyone is missing the above designs, they're all available in my Etsy shop.  I have more of my older patterns to put together still and I'll get to them as soon as I can.  First I have to start on the Spring issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine.

Speaking of which, the Winter 2018 issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly is now available!!
