You MAY be able to still download the charts for a few days. Change the date and the nth day in the url. Worth a try anyway.

Be sure to visit the "Free" sections of the above for other Christmas and a variety of freebies and links. Example:
  • DMC Freebie: Christmas Robin  - you may have to sign up to get access, but they have some really nice freebies
  • Cute, Kitchy Christmas Animal smalls with cardmounts to print out (to be honest - that takes a lot of expensive colored printer ink - I'd more likely use a small print Christmas paper design, cut it to wrap around or paste on to a suitable sized backing of 64 pound printer paper and/or or stick one in one of those blank folding cards  - but each stitcher her own); Small, quick to stitch.
ALSO, be sure to visit for the collection of free Christmas cherub designs by Nora Corbett. Click on "free designs" following the numbers at the bottom of the page. And view her other remarkable designs while you are there!
