cross stitch patterns

Cat and Mouse

Updating you on my stitching journey. I love work in progress photos! ❤️

This is a cat and mouse counted cross stitch I was hired to stitch for a customer.

I’m about 40% done now (two months into the project). This one is (relatively) quick to stitch, since I’m not stitching the background at all.

Here’s where I was about a month ago…

Here’s where I am today…

Here is the link for the cross stitch chart too, if you want to stitch along with me:

Please share your stitching journey too – I would love to be a part of it! ❤️❤️✂️

The holidays are here once again, and it’s a great time to cozy in with the family, enjoy a little time off of school and work, and get busy cross-stitchin’! With all the classic holiday movies about to start up on television, what better way to relive those old favorites than with a Thanksgiving themed cross-stitch pattern?

Here are some that I have made. They can all be found under the holiday section of my Bella Stitchery Design shop on Etsy.
