The small pieces of cross stitch were both done by me several years ago now. The flowers are various types of lilly, the white being the Christmas Lilly that is traditional here and for me smells like Christmas even more than pine does.
More important than the decorations is remembering the reason for the season. It's a time to thank God for our blessings, our family, our friends and our lives in him. I am truly thankful for the people I have in my life, the abilities and passions God has given me. Craft being one of them!
God Bless you all and may you have a safe and merry Christmas
