Christmas Freebie ~ May the Truth of Christmas

Dear Stitchers,

Here is a little something which could be whipped up fairly quickly.  It’s a 80 x 146 ct Christmas sampler which incorporates 2 sizes of Smyrna Cross stitches, backstitching and “Blackwork” in white.  The lovely little “Blackwork” borders around the verse come right from my Pattern Maker Pro library, and have been edited to suit the design.   The heart over the i in Christmas would also look lovely done in the deep pink with a tiny charm cross sewn in place.

Happy Stitching!


May the Truth of Christmas
