Away in a Manger

This was my second choice for the music theme; the first one ended up in the garbage.  I don't know whether it was the fabric or the pattern, but it seemed like I was frogging more than I was stitching and I definitely wasn't enjoying it.

When I was refiling the chart, I found this one that worked out much better.  It's "Away in a Manger" from an old Quick and Easy Cross Stitch magazine.  It's not finished finished yet, but it will probably be my granddaughter's ornament this year since this was the first Christmas song she learned.

  3. So sweet! I remember singing this song at my first Christmas concert, we had hand movements and everything to go with it. Still one of my favorite Christmas songs <3
