Christmas is the time of the year that we spend with family and friends, reflect on the year that has passed, and anticipate what the new year will bring. Regardless of one's religious beliefs, we all wish for peace, joy and love.
I cross stitched these Christmas motifs on red aida cloth a few years ago from Better Homes & Garden magazine. Instead of making individual ornaments, I stitched them together for an extra long ornament. I used red and white gingham for the backing (I love gingham!) and finished off with my signature bow using red double sided satin ribbon.
