Christmas Blessing

This Irish blessing for the Christmas season combines a charming sentiment with a classic seasonal color palette of reds and greens, and motifs reminiscent of poinsettias and evergreens. Originally released stitched on silk gauze in 2013, I’ve revamped it slightly for a lovely option on your favorite evenweave fabric by adding a border and changing up a few details.

Charts and instructions for both options are included in the chartpak so you can pick your favorite!
