I wanted to finish 2021 with an easy pattern that was motivational, very festive with a Nordic flare.
I have found a designer in Etsy named: Punochka. This is a lady from Nyurba, Russia who sells her designs via PDF at a very affordable price. The process of purchasing and downloading her patterns is very uncomplicated. Her charts are very easy to follow.
I would only have one suggestion to her charts, there is no cover page with a picture of the final product. My solution was to copy one of the pictures from her Etsy store and print it.
From her wide selection of charts I selected "December Advent Calendar" to stitch in December 2021 and finish the year with a wonderful design.
❤ I have selected the following Supplies:
25 count 3835 Lugana Zweigart Color 779
Anchor 00001 White
DMC 321 Red
DMC 318 Grey
DMC 310 Black
Progress and Impressions:
❤ 14 December 2021: I just took the project out from the hoop and this is definitely a lovely and addictive pattern. The goal was to stich one square a day, well, I didn't follow my own plan and I am on day 20.
❤ 2 January 2022: This is what happens when I go on vacation and I don't touch the needle. I am still in 2021.
❤ 8 January 2022: The final product. This is a chart that it is a lot of fun to stitch and very affordable ($5). Most of the design's are beginner friendly and can be stitched one a day.
