Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Fans of cross-stitch and of homemade Christmas decorations will be doubly thrilled with this pattern-packed volume. From angels to Santas, colorful wreaths to ice-skating penguins, you're bound to find something to your liking here. Each of the many designs is fully charted in color; many are also shown completed, made into lovely shadow boxes, sachets, pin cushions, trinket boxes, and framed pictures. There are also hundreds of stitchable quotations celebrating the joys of the season. Religious and secular imagery are both given their due: nativity scenes, crosses, carolers, snowmen, toys, ornaments, and, of course, the entire cast of "The Twelve Days of Christmas." --Amy Handy

Format: Paperback
Although some of the designs are lovely, on the whole they are nothing most people would want to spend time doing. On the other hand, the designs for the Twelve Days of Christmas are delightful as are the letters that you can stitch. Some of the santas and other people are mis-shapened and look odd, but others are very nice. It is very much a 50/50 hit or miss book.

This book is full of wonderful designs that are a snap to work up. I used scraps of cross stitch fabric and left over floss to make small designs that I sewed into gift bags made from Christmas fabric. There are so many wonderful designs it is hard to pick out a favorite. They also make great package ties and the designs can be grouped on a larger piece of fabric to make a nice wall hanging. This book gets used every year and I still have many more I want to stitch. Sam Hawkins is a talented designer.

I bought this book because I needed a book of Christmas design, and I thought it would be perfect companion book to go with Sam Hawkins' "501 Cross Stitch Designs," a book that I love. And while this book has a lot of good designs, the patterns are done in color, not black & white symbols, which makes it harder to copy and enlarge for stitch work--I'm one of those who use a copy and a highlighter to mark off what I've done. I also wish that the book were divided into sections for easy reference.

Lots of beautiful patterns to fill in a night or a week, depending on the time you want to spend.
