Cross-Stitch Tree Ornament

It's the 12th day of the 12 Days of Craftmas! It would be hard to choose my favorite of the ornaments I've made, but this one might just barely win by a hairbreadth. That's just because I love cross-stitch so much. It's the first craft I ever learned outside of school. It's the first craft that I ever actively started pursuing projects. I love it and I'm so happy that I get to share some with you!

This video is a little on the longer side because I show you the entirety of me making this ornament. I've never done that before on a video so I did what I could to make it not seem like an eternity of silence when I'm stitching away. Let me know what you think, okay? :)

I have had so much fun making this video series. I think I'm going to have to do it next year too! Maybe I'll do something besides ornaments...hmm...I've got some planning to do!

Oh, and as promised in the video, here is an image for you to download. If you prefer a pdf file, let me know and I can add that as well. Just right-click (or control-click on a Mac) the image and select Save Image As. 

I did mention in the video that I modified this pattern from a public domain pattern found in a book called Art Needlework #7 by Henry Hesse. I've linked you to the page where I found it from. I'd link directly to the book itself, but that's a pdf file and I always get a little antsy about directly linking to a pdf for some reason. :)

Thank you all soooooo much for watching this series as well as my other videos! I have the best viewers, commenters, subscribers, and friends! Happy Holidays!
