Excerpts from Just Cross Stitch Special Christmas Issue: Christmas Ornaments (December, 1999)

JCS Christmas 99

The Heart in Hand Needleart ornament in the third Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament issue is called Starshine.

The design was accompanied by a description of a tradition in the Turner household of doing something nice for someone during the Christmas season anonymously.

The concept is to play Santa for someone. You pick your recipient and do something nice for him or her in secret. You must not let that person or anyone else know what you have done.

You might buy a week's groceries for someone in need, put the groceries on the doorstep, ring the doorbell, and run! ... You may not claim responsibility for your deed. That's the hard part! You'll be dying to tell!

Join us this year. Treat someone you know, or someone you don't know, to a gift from Santa!
