Merry Christmas!

20161224-O Holy Night
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!  
May you be blessed this Christmas season with much love and joy!  

I originally began this when Pam Kellogg asked me to stitch a piece for the special Christmas issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly.  But as I worked on it, I realized that it didn't have quite the graphic impact that a cover piece should have and so I set it aside and completed the Christmas Tree piece that she ended up using.  Since then, I've worked on this, but still don't have it quite finished.  I wanted to share it anyway!  


And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.  And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear.  And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.  And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying  in a manger.”  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
Luke 2: 8-14

Lisa, I love your work in general and this piece especially, so I am curious about what you feel it needs. In the past, you have "broken down" a block to explain balancing the colors or stitches. I don't think that it needs anything, so would you mind explaining it to me? Maybe you could sketch out (verbally) what you intend to do to finish it? Thank you and Merry Christmas!
