Dazzling Ornament {Crosstitch Tree Skirt}

In 1999, I made my parents a crosstitch and beaded tree skirt.


At the time, it never occurred to me to take any pictures.  This year, while we were visiting them in Virginia for the Christmas holidays, I decided to take the opportunity to take a pictures.  Since my mom keeps her village on it, I didn't want to pull them all off and only took two pictures....but I think you get the idea.


Crosstitch.  Beads.  Aida cloth.  Piping and simple muslin backing.
It was nice to see it still under her tree 17 years later.

  1. Oh. My. Word.

    How. Beautiful.

    I used to do cross stitch - when I was single and had free time - but I never took on a large project like this one. Your work is absolutely gorgeous!!

    Is this pattern even around anymore?

  3. My daughter has been looking for that "perfect tree skirt" for a few years now. She saw your blog and this skirt and fell in love! I've spent some time trying to find the pattern with no success. Any ideas where I might be able to find this pattern?
