If anyone is interested in this design it can be found here on the Stitchers Paradise website.

Comments: This is one of those projects that when I saw it the first time around I immediately fell in love with it and promised myself that one day I would stitch it.

Bargello is one of the thing I love the most stitching and this project was no exception. It was just a delight. The colors are just so pretty and of course Chrismassy. Unfortunately the photographs do not quite do it justice. We can't really see too well the gold metallic thread used here and there in Florentine Holiday.

I have taken a few close-ups for you all to see some sections better.

(This first close-up shows the garland with the four bows at the top)
