Sleep Tight TonightClick to see the finished cross-stitch

Wish everyone sweet dreams every night! Great Bear Canada's premiere Traditions line includes “Sleep Tight Tonight”, a beautiful Victorian-inspired piece. This cross stitch pattern is a perfect project for needlework too!

The full color chart opens up to a great big pattern (17½” x 23½”) with easy-to-read symbols. Stitchers will enjoy the stories that accompany the chart, every time they pick up their stitching.

Stitched on aida or evenweave; DMC and Anchor codes. Weeks Dye Works floss would be great to try too.

Michelle talks about this pattern
Bob's grandparents had a wonderful old grandfather clock in their home. (It's now in Bob's brother's home, still keeping good time.)

The face of the moon appears once a month above the clock's face, the face slowly moving to show its phases.

Bob remembers the privilege of starting the clock once a week under the watchful guidance of his grandfather. His grandfather would wind the clock and then let Bob lightly push the pendulum to get things ticking again.

Bob says it felt like he was starting time.

Other uses for this pattern
This pattern will soon be stitched with a little niece or nephew's nursery in mind. I will add the baby's name, birthdate and weight after he or she arrives. The moon would also look good on a round pillow, on large-count Aida cloth to make it bigger. Or what about on top of a shaker box?
