January Biscornu & Fob: Snow - Free Cross Stitch Chart!

I had an idea - because of the popularity of my Christmas series - of making a monthly series of ornaments. But of course, creativity doesn't always come on demand, and my proposed "Bride's Tree" series, which I'd mentioned in emails to a couple of people just wasn't really working.

So, as I was doodling around, I've actually started a series of monthly Biscornu, and this is the first one. England is covered in a blanket of snow and ice at the moment so it's fairly easy to see where the inspiration came for this one!

January brings the snow, 
Makes our feet and fingers glow.



 


The chart uses only three shades of DMC - 931, 932 and 3753. I will be starting work on my own today, so hopefully will have a picture to share soon!

Edited to add: And there's a matching fob with this design too, included in the chart pack!

If you would like a copy of the chart, please comment below and leave an email address unless yours is visible in your blog profile. Some people ask for charts but I have no way of getting them to them :o( Charts are sent in PDF format.

If you do stitch this design, I'd love to see the finished article - and there will be a prize for any I show on my blog!

If you feel so inclined, a donation to the MS Trust for this chart would be appreciated. Pennies will do - and you can make payment via the link in my sidebar or by clicking here

There is no obligation to make a donation - you will be sent the chart whether or not you choose to make a donation, as I appreciate that some people are not in a financial position to do so.

What a lovely pattern, I'd love to have a copy please. It's nice to know that the ice and snow has provided you with such inspiration. Being shut in certainly has it's benefits, more time for stitching

Nic, how can you be so heartless? Can't you see I am drowning in my mother's stash? It started out by taking over the dining room! Having run out of space on the dining room table [due to dollmaker stash], I am now sorting lace on the couch and the coffee table while taking photos on a fold-away snack table. If people don't let me send them this stuff, I will have no place to sit to eat or stitch or read!
