…….. a Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year
This is a recycled version of the greeting made while we were living in Woodside.
In that version the letters of the first part of the message were stitched together without backing inthe shape of a tree. The second part of the message was added and the letters were stitched onto two banners to use when Dad’s extended family had their Christmas reunion at our place, still in Woodside.
The pattern for the original letters didn’t include the remainder of the message, so I drew up my own patterns, but they turned out a bit skinnier than the originals.
The banner was a bit unwieldy to use indoors so I added the message to a red background.
