Of all the words spoken at Christmas time, Peace defies a simple definition. Without freedom, there is no peace. Yet wars have often been fought for freedom.
So peace is not just "the absence of war." It's much more than that. Only when heaven reigns on earth will we know true peace.
Christmas brings us the promise that we will.
As with all designs in this set, you get the best of both worlds with the peace Christmas ornament--beautiful design that is quick and easy to complete.
This is a great project for beginners or youth, while experienced stitchers will be thrilled with how many they can complete in a short amount of time. These are perfect gifts for...
--either singly or as a set.

I embroidered "Peace" on 14-count Aida with DMC 6-strand cotton floss, accented it with gold Kreinik Metallic floss. The front and back are stitched on two separate squares, then connected with half stitches. The ornament is padded, then finished off with a gold ribbon hanger and surrounding fringe.
Sparkle is added to the dove with metallic half stitches on top of the cross stitches. For detailed stitch diagrams, follow the above links or click on the "How to..." button on the left menu.
