I started stitching this piece last year, but ran out of green floss to finish the border so I couldn't finish it then. I thought about frogging the green I already had stitched and replacing it with another thread but I was almost done with it so decided to wait and buy the right thread even if that ment I wouldn't finish it on time for Christmas.
The design, as you might already know, is by Dianne Williams of Little House Needleworks and was done as a fundraiser of UNICEF. The original was charted with the word peace in French "Paix" but I decided to translated to Spanish. I did not add the French knots for the eyes of the little girls... I like them better without them :)

Empecé a bordar este diseño el año pasado, pero me quede corta con uno de los hilos para poder completar el borde; pensé en sacar las puntadas y reemplazarlo con otro tono de hilo pero ya estaba bordado más de la mitad del borde así que decidí esperar y comprar el hilo que me faltaba a pesar que eso implicara no terminarlo a tiempo para la navidad del año pasado.
Este es un diseño de Diane Williams de Little House Needleworks que realizó con la finalidad de recaudar fondos para Unicef, el texto original decía paz en francés "Paix"....decidí no agregarle ojos a las niñas, me gusta más asi :)
