Hello, February! Things have been moving along quickly with our house search this month, and I’m excited to be sharing (hopefully soon) what that means for our big move. In the meantime, I have several new things coming your way this month, including a brand new cross stitch pattern: this spring-inspired greenery wreath. I included a name in the middle, which I think fits well for those that want to personalize (it shouldn’t be too hard for you to insert your own names and dates).

It’s already starting to warm up here in Georgia, and usually around February, I want to make something that has some sort of “love” theme in honor of Valentine’s Day. In the past, I’ve done rainbow letters, lovebirds, flowers, etc. This year, I thought I’d give something to those of you who like personalization. In the pattern, I’ve got the lettering stitched out, which you can skip entirely and create your own words (I don’t supply an alphabet, but it’s pretty easy to make it up as you go along, with either full cross stitches or by backstitching).

My thinking was that the wreath frame could stay the same, and you can insert your own quote, names, anniversary or wedding date, etc. Whatever feels special to you and makes sense for how you wish to display the wreath. These frames seem to be a popular wedding cross stitch category online, so I might wind up making more of them for the paid membership site (NeedleSpark) if there seems to be enough activity on this pattern. Details below!

Wreath Frame Cross Stitch Pattern

Add a little greenery to your walls and personalize as you see fit!

  • Designed for 14 count Aida
  • Full counted cross stitches only
  • DMC floss colors: 28
  • Size: approximately 8.1 in. x 7.6 in. (20.5 cm x 19.4 cm)
  • 113 x 107 stitches

Because of the “realistic” look to the leaves, there are more colors with this pattern than I usually go for, but the color variation really helps to make the leaves pop. I have a thing for bluish-silver leaves, so I chose eucalyptus as one of my inspiration images for the greenery. Happy stitching and I hope you enjoy!

How to see all the 2023 pattern releases and get access to even more designs:

During the winter months is when I start working on the new patterns for the next year. That means over the holidays, I finished up all twelve new designs for 2023! You’ll be able to access them once per month as usual, but there’s a way you can get them early (read below!)

2023 monthly cross stitch releases

Last summer, I launched a new cross stitch site called NeedleSpark. I only release ONE pattern per month over here on the UDH blog, but now that my new cross stitch site has launched, I have a way to give exclusive early access and lots more. Over there, you’ll find:

  • archived patterns that you can’t get over on the blog anymore (like this first fall tree pattern)
  • early and new releases not available anywhere else (different color varieties of popular patterns, too)
  • I add multiple new patterns each month, sometimes even whole collections (I’ve just released a new moth/butterfly collection that I am OBSESSED with)
  • significant savings per pattern because of the membership structure (lower than what you’d typically pay to buy them individually from my Etsy shop, especially if you join as a lifetime member)

If you’ve signed up as a UDH email subscriber, check your emails for an exclusive discount code.

  1. Hi there! I’m a bit new to cross stitch, I’ve only really done ready made kits so far, but I’m keen for a challenge and I love this pattern! I just wondered what size hoop you’d recommend for the final design? The finished design size is listed as 20.5cm x 19.4cm, would a 9inch/22.86cm hoop be a bit too small and make it look cramped? Would a 10inch/25.4cm hoop be better??
    Thanks so much!!

    1. I guess it depends on your subjective opinion if a 9 inch hoop would be too small? Keep in mind you can still refit it to a larger hoop after you’re done (you might need to wash it to get the hoop marks out, but people commonly wash their finished works after they are done and before framing).
