Jolly Housewives Stitch Along

Christmas is coming, and it’s about to get much more jolly! This December, we’re stuffing our stockings and decking the halls with cross stitch. Join Priscilla and Chelsea from Stitching with the Housewives and me for Jolly Housewives this holiday season!

Jolly Housewives starts December 1 and lasts until December 31. This year I am stitching up four of my favorite Stitching with the Housewives Christmas patterns plus three patterns from other designers! You can stitch along with me or choose your own patterns from Stitching with the Housewives, which you can see here on the Stitching with the Housewives Pattern Page.

What I’m Stitching

I will be stitching from these eight patterns every day throughout December until they are all done and ready to FFO! To keep myself accountable, I will post my progress on Facebook and Instagram daily.  You can also see my progress and what other cross stitchers are stitching in my Kimberly’s Stitch Squad Facebook group.

How adorable is this Christmas aDoorables pattern? I’m ready to start stitching!

I’m going on a bike ride to Christmas Lane thanks to this Stitching with the Housewives Pattern.

Warmest wishes from me to you as I get ready to stitch this hot cup of cocoa for Santa this holiday season!

It’s that time of the month again! I can’t wait to stitch the Large and Small Month 2 Month patterns for December.

I’m starting with the Rudolph TypeFACE Pattern, which is very deer to me! The most famous reindeer of all is shown side by side with some dashing text.

With winter in full swing, I am ready to get stitching on the Winter Petites from Little House Needleworks!

I’m excited to celebrate this year coming to an end by stitching A Year of Celebrations Season 2 December!

You’ll want to print off the FREE Downloadable Calendar so you can stay organized with us. You can also pick up the Cross Stitch Journal that allows you to record every detail for the cross stitch projects you choose, like pattern, designer, time spent, and floss and cloth used. It’s one of my favorite must-haves!

Stitching with the Housewives Jolly Housewives Christmas T-Shirt

Priscilla and Chelsea designed the Stitching with the Housewives Jolly Housewives T-Shirt, so we can be festive and twinning! This shirt is super soft and comfortable and fits true to size. If you have the original Stitching with the Housewives T-Shirt, this one will fit the same.

Stitching with the Housewives Project Bag

While I stitch along, I will keep my WIPs in my Stitching with the Housewives Jolly Housewives Project Bag. I picked up one of these as soon as I could and I labeled them all with my Jolly Tags to keep track of which project is in which bag. I hope you have plenty of empty project bags at the ready because we have lots of stitching to do!
