SSD-C49 - Decorating For The Holidays

1 1/4 -1 5/8” w by 1 -2 7/8” h each - 17-23 stitches w by 15-27 stitches h

Three Christmas / holiday cross-stitch designs (“Windows Were Adorned”, “Stockings Were Hung”, and “Trees Were
Trimmed”) depict three areas that are prepared for the holidays with items appropriate for decorating for the holidays - from
the cherub above the fireplace, to the star on top and the cat under the Christmas tree, to the teddy bear under the window.  
Stockings for parents and children are hung on the fireplace; ornaments and garland decorate the Christmas tree; and holly,
a wreath and garland, grace the window.

The images are on pre-finished ovals ready to be finished to be decorative on both sides (with detailed finishing instructions
provided) and hung as decorations after a ribbon is laced through the lace edge of the medallions.  These will provide unique
accents to the holiday motifs.
