These are three Christmas cross-stitch designs that depict toys from the top of the Christmas wish list of yesteryear, and they still remind us of the Holidays today. (“Traditional Tin Soldier” - The tin soldier is embellished with shiny gold accents on his red and blue suit and he is wearing the traditional matching tall hat -, “Traditional Train” - The toy train in primary colors of red, blue, and yellow, is spewing smoke that we can remember from those smoke pellets for model trains. The smoke stack and cow catcher are ‘must haves’ -., and “Traditional Sled” - The sled is straw colored, representing the wood that was used , and it is embellished with a glistening gold rope and red beads at the top of the sled where the rope is attached and it has red accents for decoration.)
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.
