Hello everyone,

I was asked for a couple of designs which only used one colour to keep my nieces busy while they visited Grandma without having to bring along lots and lots of threads. I chose green for these because green is very festive and goes with almost any other Christmas decoration but theres no reason to stick with green if theres another colour you'd love. Why not try one of these with some variegated thread to really let the colour variations of the thread show through.

If you wanted the areas which are white in the original design to be a different colour you could always fill this in or to save yourself a little time (since there's always many Christmas cards to sew at once) change up the colour of the aida to something which compliments or contrasts with the embroidery thread you are stitching with.

I hope everyone has a lovely Christmas time and can have great fun with their family as well as fitting in a little relaxing stitching in the holidays.

Much love and happy stitching
