Last fall I fell in love with Kathy Schmitz's Stitches from the Harvest. Now it is time to start your projects for Christmas! And Kathy has come up with adorable embroidery patterns to celebrate the Yuletide.

Stitches for the Yuletide includes fifteen projects with winter themes including snowman and deer and holy and pine bows. There are patterns for a sachet, a tea cozy, gift tags, embroidered tea towels, ornaments, wall art, hangings, a notions holder and a needle book, pillows, and table runner.

You can adorn your home or create gifts to give.

Kathy's sketches and watercolor paintings, photos of the projects and decor ideas adorn the pages of instructions.

My favorite is the wonderful stocking with white embroidery on red. The embroidery stitch is not hard, but the end product is spectacular.

Kathy includes stitch diagrams, instructions on cord making, and a conversion chart for the floss she used in the projects and the easily available DMC floss and sources for supplies.

She uses kitchen towels from Miller's Dry Goods in Millersburg, OH ( After reading Stitches from the Harvest I placed an order and bought a pile of towels. They are just wonderful.

I received a free ebook from the publisher in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.
