This is a cross-stitch design combining the “real” Christmas scene - Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus in the manger, the angel overhead, the shepherds, the three wise men, and the animals that are part of the Christmas story. It shows God’s love for all mankind in sending His only Son to live among the people as word made flesh.
The design is surrounded by accepted secular, seasonal designs of stars, evergreen trees and snowmen, in a quilt format - which actually could be made as a quilt using each square as a small block of the quilt.
