Ebenezer’s Blessing

Ebenezer's Blessing

Ebenezer's Blessing

A companion to Ebenezer's Christmas, this berry is a must for your holiday stitching. The color schemes are the same as the previous design, so you can easily include it with your other pieces.

In addition to the berry, I've included a 'non-berry' design you can frame or use as an ornament. It highlights another quote from our favorite 'bah humbug' character. If you look closely at both the linen and silk versions of this bonus design, you see they are the same, but the linen version omits the trees and border.

NOTE: Silk and linen berry chartpaks have been sold separately for some time, and copies are likely still available from numerous retailers. However, due to the lack of silk gauze available for the foreseeable future, Ebenezer's  Blessing will be sold as a “partner” chartpak. This new format will include instructions and charts for both berries and small verse designs - but no silk gauze.
