Talk about a Christmas surprise! Just look what showed up in your stocking! Santa must have known exactly what you wanted. This baby dragon looks mighty pleased with himself, snuggled up tight in a Christmas stocking. No doubt he is planning some mischief for when Santa isn't looking.

The Magical Arrival Cross Stitch Pattern is based on artwork by Anne Stokes. The design measures 400 stitches wide by 600 stitches high. The cross stitch pattern spans 50 pages, and is printed double-sided, on unbound sheets in a clear plastic bag for protection. There is a color picture of the completed chart on the front page. The pattern itself is graphed in black and white symbols, and a table showing the DMC colors you'll need is included. This is a massive project that will provide you with many hours of enjoyment. It is not the best choice for beginners, but for the experienced stitcher, this will be an exciting challenge. Copyright - Heaven and Earth Designs, Inc.

This is a pattern for counted cross stitch. It is not a complete kit. You will need to supply your own fabric and floss. We are not able to offer digital downloads of our patterns at this time.

How much fabric do I need?
To calculate the amount of fabric you will need for your project, divide the number of stitches by the stitch count of the fabric you wish to use. The higher the count of your fabric, the smaller your piece will be. Some examples appear below. Remember to leave several additional inches as a border on each side, to facilitate framing your project when it is finished.

Who did the artwork for this pattern?
The Magical Arrival Cross Stitch Pattern is based on artwork by fantasy artist Anne Stokes. Ms. Stokes really pours her heart and soul into her work. Her depictions of people and mythical creatures alike are incredibly detailed and life-like.

Is it going to take me a long time to finish this project?
Very likely, yes. This is an incredibly detailed pattern, and the only way to get the tiny details and subtle shading is to use lots and lots of stitches. That's not necessarily a bad thing, though. This pattern will provide you with many hours of stitching joy, and a well-earned feeling of accomplishment when you finish.
