Flowers of the Holy Night....................Glendon Place

Dr. Joel Roberta Poinsett, an amateur botanist and first United States Ambassador to Mexico, introduced the plant that became known as the poinsettia to the United States in 1828.  A native of southern Mexico, the poinsettia 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 poinsetties were traditionally part of religious ceremonies.  Many also believe that the shape of the poinsettia flowers and the leaves are a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem which led the Wise Men to Jesus.  In Mexico and Guatemala, the poinsettia is called "Flores de Noche Buena", which translates to "Flower of the Holy Night."  It is shown stitched on 28 ct. Antique White Jobelan and the design size is approx. 16 1/4" x 16 3/4" and is stitched with  Stitched using Dinky Dyes, Gum Leave, Madi's Rose, Ocean Pines, Pindi, Pistachio and Heartthrob.  Also uses Mill Hill Beads, 00145, 00148, 00525, 02055, 02097, 03041, 03049 and Mill Hill Treasures 12147 (7) and 12210

Thistle Do Nicely...............Glendon Place

Simple yet elegant, thistles have  long been the floral emblem of what was once the Kingdom of Scotland.  The characteristics of the flower holds symbolism from more than one perspective.  The flower itself is a symbol of an enlightened person, a person who has gained their crown.  Because the flower head is purple, there is added power in its symbolism.  The color purple has long been a sign of royalty, high rank, justice, wealth and dignity.  The thistle is also an ancient Celtic symbol of nobility of character and birth.  Taken from an old Irish Blessing about shamrocks, the designer has modified this blessing as a tribute to Scotland and the mighty thistle.  The model is stitched on 28 ct. White Jobelan and she has used Dinky Dyes Ocean Pines, Lilac, Jindabyne, Spearmint, Bunya Cone, and Your Majesty; DMC B5200 and 500 and Mill Hill Beads 00479, 02009, 02031, 03053 and Kreinik #4 008HL (Green Hi Lustre).  Finished size is approx. 14 1/2" x 9 3/4"

Noah's Christmas Ark 1.................Plum Street Samplers

Noah's  Christmas Ark ! is the first in a series of Christmas ornaments. This will be a year-long series, with two ornaments per chart released 6 times throughout the year. There are 12 ornaments total ( Paulette says there will be 9 more, but she will be explaining more about this later.) which can be stitched as they are shown on the covers, or all together, on one piece of fabric! It just depends on if you want a larger sampler at the end of the year, or 12 + 1 individual ornaments.  If you choose to stitch these as ornaments, each block will be 58w x 48h. But if you want to stitch them all on one piece of fabric (three horizontal rows with four blocks each, pictured below), your stitch count will be 244w x 152h. This stitch count includes four blank rows (or 8 threads if using linen) both horizontally and vertically between each of the twelve blocks. The ornaments will be stitched on 36 ct. Patriot's Brew by R&R Reproductions. The threads used on just the Crocodiles and Giraffes are as follows: DMC 3072; Weeks Dye Works in Sanguine, Dove, Bullfrog, Parchment, Garrison Green, Kudzu, Grapevine, Collards, Molasses, Cayenne, and Gunmetal; and Classic Colorworks in Stepping Stones and Hazelnut.  If you want to have all the threads on hand for the entire project, regardless of how it is stitched, you will also need the following six colors: DMC 3013 and 3033; Weeks Dye Works in Tin Roof, Galvanized, Crimson, and Baked Apple.  Paulette also recommends  that you have 2 Grapevine and 2 Parchment on hand.  All of the ornaments are stitched in full cross stitch over two threads, but there are just a couple of blocks with a few back-stitches or long-stitches in them.
