The Christmas design I wish to share with you today is the one that got me back into cross-stitch when I stopped working full time. It is Victoria Sampler's Jingle Bells Christmas Tree Farm. I fell in love with this design and had to have it. It was stitched quickly as I wasn't busy with other craft projects as I am now.
Jingle Bells Christmas Tree Farm - Victoria Sampler
Fabric: Zweigart 28ct Smokey Pearl linen
Threads: VS Accessory Pack
The theme of this year's Advent Blog Hop is "My favourite Christmas Song". It was hard selecting one but in the end I opted for a more modern song. I use the word 'modern' loosely as 'Fairytale of New York' from the Pogues featuring Kirsty McColl was released in 1987, reaching number 2 in the UK singles chart. My favourite lines from the song are:
"I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true".
which I think captures the hope that many of us feel at this time of year.
I hope you enjoy listening to it.
