One of the earliest records of candles being used at Christmas is from the Middle Ages, where a large candle was used to represent the Star of Bethlehem. Candles signify love, prayer, passion and hope. In Scotland, it was believed that if the Xmas candle finished before midnight, it meant great disaster would happen to the family. In Ireland, people used to make their candles so big that the candle holders had to be carved out of large turnips.
Gather up a couple of coordinating Xmas fabrics to compliment a lovely Xmas stitchery centre and create a lovely table runner to adorn your dining table at the festive season.
Red work is a form of embroidery which uses one colour of embroidery thread to trace simple line drawings. Though red is the traditional colour to use in Red work, other colours can be used or even stitched in multi colours. Red work is such a versatile form of embroidery and uses simple embroidery stitches such as Back Stitch, Daisy Stitch and French Knots. Red work is so versatile and looks lovely in a table runner.
