This beautiful Christmas Poinsettia was such a favorite that we decided to showcase it again. Contest Winner, Maricel Fabi, is from Fairfax Virginia and has been making cards since 1996 for friends and family.

    Love poinsettias. I have just made 35 of this pattern in the white eyelet knitting lace, calling them snowflakes. Stiffened them & scribbled glitter glue coming from centre out to the peak & a silver pom pom in the centre. For my line dancing ladies for our Xmas break-up. Just have to tie chocs underneath somehow. My pattern was old so I’m glad I can refresh it with your pattern. I thought how lovely it would be in red for a poinsettia. Thankyou.
