Chart: This Imaginating chart is print on a folded A3 cardboard sheet. As it is a small design, the symbols are printed large and easy to see and delineate, even the fractional stitches.

Stitches: Pattern uses whole cross stitches, partial cross stitch and backstitch.

Materials: DMC stranded cotton. Stitched on 14ct White Aida. Partial stitches on 14ct Aida? You can bet I’m going to sub that out!

Designer’s Notes: None. This design is part of the Silly Snobs series.

Why I was attracted to this design: I have a fondness for the Silly Snobs series. my mum has stitched You Are What You Eat for me but we haven’t yet taken it to the framers.

So why haven’t I stitched it? To be perfectly honest, I cannot remember when I added this chart to my stash.  I don’t remember if this has languished for a long time or a short time. I know I tend to ignore to Christmas charts until oh the second week in December …

It’s a small chart – I might have the DMC in my stash … if so I might start it this afternoon. Watch this space as they say.

Where can you buy it? This chart is out of print so I would try eBay.  Otherwise try back here soon.

Discussion questions: Do you find seasonal pieces languish in your stash because it’s not the right time of year to stitch them? Alternatively, what fabric, other than white, should I stitch this?
