‘Welcome Blooming Borders’  is a flowering band sampler filled with pretty summer colors, inspired by the blossoms in my flower garden.   There are mouth-watering, luscious oranges, yellows, rosy reds, tones of lavender in DMC.  

This piece is a quick stitch, designed in full cross stitch with a minimum of back stitch. Size 124 x 124, model is worked on DMC with a Dinky Dyes silk conversion.  
'Comet and Cupid' is FIRST in a set of four  ornaments.  

Excited little reindeer frolic above neighborhood of quaint city houses.  Notice that Santa's sleigh is parked right in front. Perhaps he is inside, delivering gifts!  

All four are sized at 70 x 70 stitches, worked over 2 in DMC on Wichelt’s 28ct Nordic blue linen #7641.
 ‘Dash Away All!' , SECOND in our set, shows off Santa's wonderful, big sleigh full of  wrapped gifts.   It sails across a huge, golden moon, above a tree-studded country village.  See that little creek?   And yes, there will be an amazing Santa coming up to complete this set of four, of October 2017.

Our Christmas ornament  designs were inspired by the well-known poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas" ("The Night Before Christmas") by Clement Clarke Moore, 1823.
