2. Balades et Broderie Noel

The Needlecraft Haven October Freebie Challenge, Freebie from Balades et Broderie
Stitched over 1 on 28count evenweave.

I'm not a fan of stitching long straight borders so I changed the white border into a backstitched lace effect instead.  I really enjoyed stitching this design, more than I initially thought I would.  Stitching over 1 made all the difference for me, it's just so sweet and delicate!  Christine really does have great taste in choosing these designs for us each month.

And below it is on our tree.



  1. I totally love this. Went and printed it...plan to start SOON!

  2. I recognise this one, well done.


Thank you for dancing along with me!
