I love to cross stitch!
Did you know that Country Living Magazine features a free cross stitch pattern every month? You can find the links for the patterns at Country Living Magazine.
I recently completed one of their patterns from May 2015 that was a cute little pattern of a Ball® jar.
So adorable. Of course, being a southern lady with an avid love of all things made with mason jars, I also have the replicas of the Heritage Ball ® jars that were released from 2013 – 2015 in the blue, green and purple colors.
These jars sit on a shelf in my kitchen nook area.
I decided to recreate this same cross stitch pattern in the blue, green, and purple colors. I had to buy several colors of thread but think I eventually found a close match to each color. (I’m sure Country Living doesn’t mind that I expanded on their original design and changed the colors – wink!)
These four adorable little pieces now hang as companion pieces to a canvas my daughter bought me featuring vintage Ball ® jars that hangs above my kitchen table, right across from the shelf with the replica jars.
