The Spirit of Christmas (Lavender and Lace)

December 2007

Lavender and Lace are definitely becoming a firm favourite of mine when it comes to cross stitch charts.

They are usually largish projects that you can really get your teeth into and always have the most wonderful detail in them as well as Gold threads and beading which is why I choose The Spirit of Christmas as my next project and I  just managed to get it finished and framed in time to hang it on my wall for the festive season.




I think this Santa, holding the Christmas Star and surrounded by a wreath bedecked with Deep Red ribbons and candles, reflects the magical spirit of the Christmas season.
