Christmas in July continues with this cute holiday snowman and his three feathered friends!
As stitched, "Merry Christmas" uses shades of red, green, white, gray, brown, black, and orange. It features a snowman standing in a snowdrift beneath an evergreen swag. A bird is perched on his mitten and two more are standing nearby. Next to the snowman, a pair of ice skates are hung underneath a birdhouse, and snow is falling all around. "Merry Christmas" is written below.
PATTERN DETAILS: The model was stitched on 30 ct. Portobello Linen using 2 ply thread. The design uses whole stitches only. The stitch count is 78w x 97h and the finished design measures approximately 5"w x 7 1/8"h when stitched on that fabric. I chose to use overdyed threads from Weeks Dye Works for the red and green to help add a little extra texture. (Bonus: Weeks Dye Works has shifted to using colorfast dyes! Win!) The other suggested floss colors are from DMC.
