This design was drawn originally with Anchor colours in my cross stitch design program. Use Anchor threads to get the closest match to the picture. I used a conversion chart to get the DMC numbers

Hello everyone,
Today is a Christmas stocking themed design. Its a little smaller than my usual designs so it can be used as a decoration for the Christmas tree or a large Christmas card.

This design came about during a conversation with a friend of mine. We were discussing what decorations to put on our trees this year when her son Toby pipes up that Christmas decorations are boring.
Of course we were shocked, we think Christmas decorations are actually quite nice.

Toby explained that they just sit there and look pretty, even the chocolate ones because he isn't allowed to eat them until boxing day anyway (though we are fairly sure he and his brother do sneak off with one now and again). Then went off to fill in his colouring book.
On one of the pages was a very simple maze, it was help the dog to find his bone on the other side of the maze. So I thought what if the decoration was also a maze? It can be taken off the tree and solved.

I showed the pattern to Toby and he thought it was cool to have a little maze on the tree but can the decorations do anything else?
Oh my he is setting me a challenge

Though I refused to sew one for him to colour in. I think instead we'll find some Christmas colouring books and cut out the Pictures ones hes done colouring The smaller ones can be added to the tree by putting a hole in the top with a hole punch and adding a piece of string or ribbon through it.
