I picked up the needle a bit this evening while ironically watching a movie, A Christmas Carol, which came on Lifetime TV Holiday movie series and it made the stitchy phrase in this sampler even more special.
28 ct Cashel Sand linen
with Limited Edition Crescent Colors Christmas threads
I had the Christmas Threads, limited ed. in my stash and I thought these two shades compliment each other well. They are not labeled on the tag so I can only describe that the red is almost like a Williamsburg Red, and the green is more of a Blue Spruce. The linen is a remnant from another sampler and fits almost too good, as I'm hoping it fits well enough, but definitely a tight fit on the sides.
I did so enjoy getting to watch the movie from beginning to end.
There's a place called home
I can almost see, with a red front door, and
A roaring fire, and a Christmas tree.
~~~from C. Dickens, A Christmas Carol
