Start to finish

Garlands--draped from mantles or gracing an entry way--are the inspiration for our Christmas project this year. When we started stitching, we had no idea where this design would take us. Of course the basics were charted, but we really hadn't pondered finishing possibilitiesl Well, instead of just selecting another frame or making "Garlands of Joy" into a pin pillow, we opted for a small foldng portfolio to  hold special Christmas card and letters...maybe even a letterto Santa! We thought you might like to see a before and after photo...and we're hoping your days are merry and bright!  --Vickie & Maegan
