Here you have, " Christmas Colors:MD's Sampler " by Shakespeare's Peddler. The designer indicated this was most likely done by a young girl due to the fact that all things are not quite even. The sampler is not dated or signed. I took the liberty of making some color changes. A somewhat aqua was used in the original. I substituted using golds and GA endive green.
There is a lot of bright red and green in this sampler. I used DMC 355 and 356 for the reds. I used the suggested greens except where I used the GA endive.
I love that little basket of fruit. I can't decide what to do with it now that I have finished. Should I just frame it or try to make a little wall hanging out of it? Any ideas?
When my DD was little, 4th-5th grade, she did a lot of cross stitch. These are Christmas gifts she made for us many years ago. You have seen the Woolpets she now makes. I am one lucky mother to have such a talented, sweet daughter!
Have a wonderful week! I hope you are all able to slow down and enjoy the beauty of this season!
