I cross-stitched this using DMC #602, Medium Cranberry, on baby pink 14-count Aida. The original was done in white on taupe and was called, “Pretty in white.” The pattern is from the Cross-stitchers Club.
Just one week after Easter! I had to laugh. I hope I can remember where I store it when Christmas rolls around next year!
The pattern is “Four Birds” from the Cross-stitcher’s Club.
Look what just got uploaded to the Cross-stitch Club! So pretty, and perfect for a snowy night like tonight!
The cross-stitcher’s club website appears to have been down for several days. Here is a link to the French club: http://club-point-de-croix.com/club/
I changed the reds in this pattern to DMC 312 and 814. I wanted the cardinal to be a vivid crayon red like he is in real life! The pattern is, “Four Birds,” from the Cross-stitcher’s Club.
It’s really pretty simple. If your chart is in pdf format, open it, and choose “edit.” Under edit, choose “Take a Snapshot” The cursor should change to a “+.” Left click it in the upper left corner of the area you wish to enlarge. Drag across that area and release the mouse. The area you wish to enlarge should be highlighted in blue. You may get a message window that says, “The selected area has been copied.” Click on ,”OK.”
A new “Printer” window should appear with the highlighted area in the preview box on the right, enlarged to fit an 8,1/2″ by 11″
sheet of paper. If the preview is satisfactory, make sure your printer is ready and choose, “OK.” Your enlarged portion of the chart should come shooting out of your printer shortly!
The chart pictured here is, “Cute Lamb” from the Cross-stitchers Club.
