Bringing Home the Tree Cross Stitch Along

Lori Holt’s latest cross stitch pattern, Bringing Home the Tree, commemorates a wonderful holiday pastime. Do you remember piling into the car and heading out on your annual Christmas tree farm trip? The whole family got together to pick just the right tree that you would all later gather around and decorate for the Holidays. Let’s relive this fun tradition with the Bringing Home the Tree Cross Stitch Along!

Because we know you’re going to want one of these in time for the holidays, Kimberly is kicking off the cross stitch along with the Bringing Home the Tree pattern on Wednesday, November 13. The stitch along will continue weekly through to December 11, with a break during the week of Thanksgiving!

Lori stitched her Bringing Home the Tree cross stitch in White Silver Sparkles 14 count Aida for a festive flair.

The Bringing Home the Tree Cross Stitch pattern comes with full-color instructions, diagrams, and a supply list, including suggested DMC and AuriFloss colors. It is printed on durable 11” x 17” cardstock.
