That's not to say that I don't love winter, which I do! The majestic beauty of a snowy landscape is a sight to behold, and of course who doesn't love the Christmas season? Time spent with family, baking cookies, wrapping presents, drinking hot cocoa, and of course building snowmen!
I thought we should do something to help us get into the wintry Christmas season, and since I'm a plastic canvas designer, what else would I think of but to make a plastic canvas design! And not just a design, but a stitch-along design!
So my plan in so release a section of the pattern every week, lasting for four weeks, so that we can stitch this lovely pattern together. Once the stitch-along is over, I'll post the pattern in its entirety in case you missed the event!
