COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY BARBARA ANA DESIGNS
Have you seen this joyful lot? It seems like this gingerbread man and this snowman are having a lot of fun getting out the Christmas lights and all the candy goodies.
Designer Barbara Ana is a master of color and makes the very best use of specialty threads in her cross stitch charts. This time she picked a mix of overdyed cotton floss from the Threaworx range (DMC substitutes also provided). She also selected two overdyed metallics from the same range. As a result, once stitched, the top hat has a glossy black shine, the red heart and gingerbread man's hat are a throbing red and even the snow has gentle variations of white.
