Holiday Cards — Homestead

Homestead house and barn

Homestead house and barn

My House and Barn Holiday card shows a wintry evening: stars shining above a country home and barn.  This counted needlework embroidery design is presented within a 10 plus page booklet.

Design count is 48w by 81h.
Work area is approximately 3 by 4.25-inches on 18 count fabric.

Stitches used: Ornament outline has layered straight stitches and cross stitches.  Inner design is straight stitches.

This design is approximately 3 by 4.25-inches when worked on 18 count fabric. The design fits within the (3.5 by 5-inch) window area of a 5 by 7-inch tri-fold card, or secured within the insert window area of a 5 by 7-inch mat board (cardstock). The cardstock I used has a white back (for writing a seasonal or personal message, if being given as a gift).
