Inspired by a verse on a vintage 1930's Christmas card, this gorgeous silk gauze design is a bit more ambitious with a stitch count of 246 x 73, but still very do-able!
Most of your time will be used filling in the background area, which is so easy! With a border of teeny satin stitches plus wonderful colors from The Gentle Art, Weeks Dye Works, and a bit of DMC - it is really wonderful when finished - no photo can do it justice!
