I have always liked the classic Christmas tune, “Baby, Its Cold Outside”. Its a playful tune, festive and perhaps a little bit naughty, but conjures up images of crackling fires and cozy rooms protected by stormy weather. Written by Frank Loesser in 1944, it was originally sung as a duet with his wife.
When I designed this little pattern, I was aiming for a piece that could hang on your walls not just during the holiday season, but also afterward, through the duration of the winter season. A little something winter-y to connect Christmas and Valentines Day. I do hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
The entire model is worked with cross stitches, using one thread worked over-two.
Stitch Count: 159 x 103Model stitched on Picture This Plus 36ct Ale
Using flosses from The Gentle Art: 7019 Pomegranate, 7025 Shaker White, 7033 Harvest Moon, 7060 Picnic Basket, 7082 Piney Woods
