An interesting story surrounds the cardinal. It's become a symbol of Christmas to some because his bright red feathers are thought by some to represent the blood of Jesus. This simple applique design shows off the pretty little bird in all his glory, right down to his dark face and yellow beak. He stands on a branch of dark green mistletoe against a white background, surrounded by little red berries. This kit comes complete with a hoop that is suitable for framing, and is a perfect piece to learn some applique work basics.
