While I was on vacation last week I took a couple of projects to complete with me and this was one of them. As I would work on getting this stitched my husband's little sisters would sit next to me and watch intently, asking questions as I stitched along. Needless to say before our vacation was over I had purchased a couple of little kits and was teaching them how to stitch plastic canvas.
This fireplace is from the Kappie Originals leaflet titled Let the Holidays Sing and was published.in 1993. I've had this pattern since then and for all the different projects in the leaflet this fireplace is the only one I've ever created.
