The Latin text reads "Gaudeamus om[ne]s in domino diem festum celebrantes sub honore" meaning "Let us all rejoice in the Lord celebrating a festival in honor of...".

She is the patron saint of women with breast cancer, and 20% of the sale of each copy of this pattern will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The background is not stitched; use black fabric. The moon and/or stars may be omitted. We also offer a night view. (2000)

The background is not stitched; use black fabric. We also offer a daytime view. (2000)
Fetching the Tree

He is dressed in a red jacket, a striped muffler, black cap, tan corduroy knickerbockers, and gray wool gaiters. He is heading away from a house partially hidden by the snowy hilltop, so perhaps he plans to set up a Christmas tree for the birds and animals. (About 1880)
A Jolly Christmas
A little girl dressed for Christmas in a red spotted dress, white smock, red bow in her hair, and red shoes, holds a black cat against her shoulder.

One, wearing a lavender gown with a fur collar against a red background, is trimming a white tree; the other, in a dark red gown against an off-white background, is trimming a green tree. This pattern can be stitched on red or off-white fabric. If red fabric is used, only the off-white side is stitched, and vice-versa. (About 1925)
Christmas Morning
A little girl in a blue dress sitting on a low stool and happily exploring the contents of shoes filled with Christmas gifts. Her doll is nestled in the crook of her arm as she rummages in the shoe for toys and oranges. She has also hung a stocking from the post of her brass bed and a marionette poking out the top is reaching towards her. A sunny window with potted topiary plants is behind her. (About 1920)
Falconry (detail)
Ornately dressed noblemen and women hunting with falcons. The lead horseman carries a falcon on his wrist and is gazing intently ahead. The man following him is sharing his horse with a lady and is turned to talk to her. A man on foot carries two more falcons. Dogs and more people fill the scene, and the background is of leaves and flowers. This is a small portion of the Falconry tapestry from the Devonshire Hunting Tapestries. (about 1425-1450)
Sunflower Safety Match
A cheerful stylized sunflower from a matchbox. This pattern is charted as solidly stitched, but you may stitch it on ecru fabric and let exposed fabric stand in for the ecru borders, or stitch it on red and let exposed fabric replace the red background around the sunflower. (The red area in the flower is still stitched.) With these options, the requirement for ecru is less than one skein of ecru, or 1 skein of DMC 3328, respectively.
