    Thank you for the lovely charts -- I really enjoy looking at them and have printed and saved the ones I know I will stich -- your Christmas cactus reminds me of my mom, she loved them.

    One of my childhood Christmas memories is of my grandmother's beautiful blooming cactus. Now I can have a lovely reminder since I don't have success with the plant. Thanks. Caroline

    I love it. I must stitch it in memory of my grandma Kathleen. She loved her Christmas cacti.

    Hi Linda,

    I figured out what was wrong with my google account I think.

    Anyway I really like your designs and thank you for sharing them with us through the freebies.

    May I wish you continued success and a very Merry Christmas and a safe, healthy and Happy New Year!
