This vintage counted cross stitch pattern entitled Approach to Christmas designed from a painting by James Pollard shows the hustle and bustle of a yester-year Christmas where people went on their errands by horse and buggy and winters seemed cozier. This scene is particularly charming with millions of snowflakes dotting the sky and people in the town are in a celebratory mood. Yes, it's plain to see that the joy of Christmas is in the air. If you want to add a touch of nostalgia to your Christmas, this would be the perfect choice! Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
