Oh my! A Poinsettia Mandala! You will fall in love with this charming poinsettia piece that may remind you of a quilt. The poinsettia is actually native to southern Mexico. It blooms in December and has been used in that country to decorate churches for centuries. Many consider the red color a symbol of purity, and so poinsettias were traditionally part of religious ceremonies. In Mexico and Guatemala, the poinsettia is called "Flores de Noche Buena", which translates to "Flower of the Holy Night" (referring to Christmas Eve). I could think of no finer name for this beautiful piece.

GP-239 Gingerbread Grove
The tradition of making decorated gingerbread houses started in Germany in the early 1800s. According to researchers, the first gingerbread houses were the result of the well-known Grimm's fairly tale "Hansel and Gretel" (originally recorded by the Brothers Grimm and published in 1812), in which the two children abandoned in the forest found an edible house made of bread with sugar decorations.
A gingerbread village just wouldn't be a gingerbread village without lots of sparkle and bling. This fun and colorful design is stitched on 28ct Haven by Picture This Plus with 29 colors of Sulivans floss, 11 colors of Mill Hill Beads and 9 colors of Kreinik metallic braid. DMC and Anchor "best match" colors provided in the chart. Stitch count 268w X 108h.
