Because they are way, way too cute. This was a little freebie from The Floss Box, and you can find it here. It's stitched on a 14 ct. opalescent aida, with one strand of Caron Watercolours Holiday thread. Except the yellow which is DMC 725, and the backstitching is black. And I've had this little round frame for at least 20 years. It was in a bag of stuff that I bought way-back, when Uniontown actually had a cross stitch shop. Back in the good ol' days.
