New “Rejoice!” Blackwork To Stitch, Plus A Pineapple Snowflake To Hang In Your Window

Dear Needlework Friends,

If you are in the deep freeze where you are, looking at New Designs is a welcome distraction. The cold nights make especially good stitching time while children play.

This month, we feature an eye-catching Blackwork and Hearts Cross Design to Cross Stitch, and a lovely winter Pineapple Snowflake to Crochet. It can be starched and hung in a window, or laid flat on a table.

Included in this Newsletter is a Broccoli and Rice Casserole which met with a 2 year old’s approval!

God bless you,

Angie

#244 Rejoice!

Blackwork and Hearts surround a Christian Cross, which is the symbol of Jesus Christ to God’s people. When we lift up our eyes to Calvary, we can do nothing but, “Rejoice!” for He gave the ultimate statement on the cross, “It is finished.” Design size: 120 w x 136 h. Project uses DMC Floss. Use a Fabric Calculator to determine finished size on your favorite fabric.
