We're having so much snow, in this Winter, that we're certainly going to remember it as one of the coldest Winters of the last decades. And snowflakes usually play a leading role mainly in Xmas cross stitch charts. However, "thanks" to the freezing temperatures of the last weeks, snowmen are still embellishing our gardens now, that's almost the end of February! Two months have passed since Christmas, but in many Italian towns, landscapes look like little crèches, with white roofs and the lights shimmering on the white ground.
So, why consigning exclusively to Holidays these funny and snowy charts, depicting some lovely snowmen? Here's the sweet Too Sweet
with a little, red bird, the Too Windy
having a cold and ruffled by the wind, as well as the snowmen with a small squirrel and an orange carrot of Too Scared
These charts are from AuryTM Designs
, the brand of the smiling Aury Torres-Morillo, who has been a cross stitcher since she was 7 years old. Besides the projects with these funny snowmen, Aury has created the series of the so-called Gobblestone
, some pleasant and big-bellied turkeys that Aury has stitched and hung all around the table of her kitchen, to decorate her home on Thanksgiving.
You'll have certainly noticed the quacker
influence in the style of AuryTM Designs
, finding its highest expression in Love Quaker Style
. A mixture of the rounded shapes of the pair of Gobblestone
and the harmonic simplicity of quackers is evident in the best seller from this brand: Harvest Time
Cold temperatures are definitely the main inspiration for Aury, who loves Winter and manages, after all, to let us also appreciate this cold, making us gather around our beloved ones, maybe beside a fireplace, while looking at the snowflakes slowly falling through the window
