I wrote about this one separately because I was too lazy to iron it in time for the post I made on Wed.
So here it is in it's ironed glory.
The design is called Bethlehem by Imaginating.
For my birthday in 2012 my husband gave me a free for all in the most awesome cross stitch store near where my mom lives. (Big shout out to Stitchville USA. You rock!) One of the things I purchased was this chart and the fabric. The fabric is 32ct hand dyed linen.
I started it in December of 2012 but stopped because it wasn't Christmas anymore and I was tired of stitching all in dark brown. I picked it up again in Dec 2013 and finished it one week before Christmas.
Normally, we don't frame the cross stitches I make anymore, but I think I may ask for this to be framed for my birthday this year.
Here are a few close ups:
As a side note, I named all the buildings while I was stitching them. They are from Left to right: Mushroom, Castle, Bullet, Alamo, Plantation, and the Adler Planetarium. (Because I'm sure Jesus was born right next to the Adler Planetarium.)
