Cross stitch advent calendar pattern

I have shown a little bit of this cross stitch piece every now and then. Now it's finished! My cross stitch advent calendar! This pattern is part of the collaboration with my mother. She is the designer behind the motifs and I rearranged them to one picture, changed some little things and made a pattern out of it. mother daughter Christmas is not exactly around the corner right now, but let me tell you, it's going to take while to stitch this one up, so it's best to start a bit earlier then december.

Long story short, I got unconcious while driving but we had the most luck we could have had and nothing but a cracked side mirror happened. I can't describe how grateful I am for the man who drove by and helped getting me and my kids save home and that it went how it went. karteikarten Above you can see my organizer for the embroidery stitch flashcards.
