pattern: have yourself a merry little christmas
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas is my dad's favorite Christmas song, and because of that, it holds a very special place in my heart. I just HAD to dedicate a post to this song.
While there are many wonderful lines in this song, I chose the lyric "let your heart be light" because it felt like a good reminder to have around all year. Stitch it for a gift for someone celebrating or someone moving away (both things that Judy Garland's character was experiencing when this song was sung in Meet Me in St. Louis), or stitch it for yourself. But this year, have yourself a merry little Christmas and let your heart be light.
HUGE thanks to Crystal of Two Little Aussie Birds for stitching and photographing the sample above! I love that she gave it a bit of a Valentine feeling!
