Now that it’s November and Christmas music is allowed (the rule for Christmas music is that we can start listening after Halloween…right?), I’m getting ready for the holidays! And of course, I’m looking forward to another year of Jolly Housewives with two of my favorite ladies, Priscilla and Chelsea from the Real Housewives of Cross Stitch! Would you like to join in the holiday cheer? You can stitch along with us by stitching your favorite holiday patterns designed by Stitching with the Housewives. Let’s get ready for Jolly Houswives 2021 with some of my favorite holiday cross stitch patterns and notions!
The Jolly Housewives Stitch Along starts December 1 and lasts until December 31. I’m itchin’ to stitch, so I’m starting early on November 29. Each day I will be working on a new pattern and sharing my progress (which of course I’ll record in my Cross Stitch Journal)! Priscilla and Chelsea have designed a batch of wonderful holiday-themed designs we’ll be making for this stitch along. You can stitch along with me or choose your own patterns from Stitching with the Housewives that you can find on the Stitching with the Housewives Page.
Stitch Buffalo Plaid Christmas
The headliner of this year’s Jolly Housewives is Buffalo Plaid Christmas, a precious Christmas pattern designed by the Real Housewives of Cross Stitch.
I’ll be stitching Buffalo Plaid Christmas with the Buffalo Plaid Christmas Classic Colorworks Fancy Floss Pack on Chalkboard Black 14 Count Aida by Wichelt!
My 2021 Jolly Housewives Projects
In total, I’ll be working on nine new cross stitch designs throughout December until they’re ready to be FFO’d. Read below to take a peek at my other holiday patterns that I’ll be working on during Jolly Housewives.

Jolly Housewives Dates
Starting Wednesday, December 1, join me on our Cross Stitch Instagram and Facebook for Jolly Housewives updates through the end of the year. Join me each Wednesday at 9 AM CST on Fat Quarter Shop FlossTube to see what I’m stitching.
We created a FREE downloadable calendar so you can jot down the details for each project you plan to stitch. This is such a great way to keep track of progress and it will keep you accountable. If you want to organize each project, then you might want to check out our Cross Stitch Journal. The Cross Stitch Journal allows you to record every detail for every cross stitch project, such as pattern, designer, time spent, and floss and cloth used.
