At long last I have finally added a few more patterns to my etsy shop. My favorite new patterns is this one, Mary and Jesus Cross Stitch Pattern. It’s simple but I think it is lovely and am I crazy, or does it look like Mary is actually gazing at her sweet baby boy? Amazing what a few stitches can do. I also love how the two, Mary and Jesus almost melt into one image. It’s a basic pattern, but if you are like me than it is packed with meaning.
Maybe I really just love this because I like to spend as much time as possible each day gazing and fawning over my sweet little baby boy.
The pattern, like all of the patterns I offer in my shop, is offered as an instant download. As soon as the payment is fully processed the pattern will start to download automatically as a PDF and you can get started on stitching up this pattern in a matter of minutes!
At least in my book, there is nothing as beautiful as an image of Mary holding the infant Jesus. I went round and round a little bit on this pattern and in the end I decided to just keep it simple–which is not what I usually do. I’m really happy with how this little pattern turned out and I hope, that if you decide to stitch up one for yourself, it will hang in your home as a beautiful reminder of love.
This pattern, like my favorite projects, requires very little supplies–only 3 colors of thread. Aren’t the best projects the simplest? If stitched on 14 count aida cloth, as I did, it will fit nicely in a 6″ embroidery hoop.
Once again, if you’d like a copy of this pattern, you can find it over in my etsy shop.
Thanks, as always, for being here!
