I can't even remember when I had this design done, but this one's easy and simple so I was able to finish cross stitching it in just a week or two. If my memory serves me right, this was done when we had our firstborn Leon. But events and circumstances had to set aside the framing of this design. This design was stitched on an Aida cloth using DMC threads as stated in the pattern.
A few weeks ago, I learned that the husband of an office mate has a framing business. To help them with their family business, I thought of having one of my finished projects framed. Alas, when I opened my storage bag, it was this design that was on top. I didn't think twice, thought that it was kinda divine intervention, since, soon will be Christmas, and the message of this design is indeed for the season.
As Luke 2:11 (NIV) says: Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.
For the coming holiday season, regardless how we celebrate it, let this be a simple reminder of the true meaning of Christmas. Have a blessed and merry Christmas ahead!
