A good many years ago, I inherited a lot of cross stitch items (books, fabric, thread, etc.) in a divorce situation. One of the items was a partially started Christmas placemat, but no chart to go with it. I did finally, with the help of some other cross stitchers, locate the chart. My plan all along was to finish the placemats and give them back to the person that gave me all the stash. I had worked a little on it, but it is full of confetti stitches. I hate confetti stitches. I pulled it back out this weekend and made a major dent in what was left to do. I still have just a little to add and it will be ready for the backstitching. Then, there will only be three more to do!
