Happy Monday! There's only seven weeks until Christmas! Which is both exciting and OMG-where-did-the-year-go?! It defintely feels winter-y today, it was near freezing on our morning walk, there is no escaping the changing season.
When it's cold outside, you can always sit indoors with embroidery and maybe a dog on your lap. Or maybe that's just me? Blake isn't a super cuddly dog, but occasionally he will come and sit on my lap. Usually when it's least convenient. Go figure. :-)
Anyway, what will you stitch while hiding from the cold outside? You could stitch this Noël Wreath pattern. It is a pattern I have made for the beginner embroidery classes at The Village Haberdashery in December (sign up here if you want to learn embroidery: Dec. 9th and Dec. 12th).
But if you already know embroidery or are not near London I don't want you to feel left out, so you can get your hands on the pattern here:
For non-UK/EU customers.
For UK/EU customers (Because of EU VAT rules, I have to email the pattern to you. I'm sorry I can't do direct download for you on my own website!)
In the Polka & Bloom Etsy shop. Direct downloads for everyone! But UK/EU customers will be charged VAT. Again, those EU rules.
The pattern has two sizes of the pattern and I also made an alternative version with holly instead of mistletoe. And you could even mix and match it, so you have mistletoe and holly in the same embroidery.
