March Challenge

It's taken me forever to post these two pieces mainly because somehow a red spot appeared in two places on my fabric so I restitched to cover one but the other remains. So I tried to tea dye that area, didn't work and eventually ended up just washing the whole piece, didn't help. So here it is with the red spot, maybe a little more faded than it was. I can never seem to get a scan that isn't crooked either, sorry!
Our challenge this month was to stitch something related to the Nativity story in the Bible. The above is my piece, spot and all and this one is Lorraine's:

She stitched the Maureen Appleton piece from the JCS ornament issue 1999, changed the linen color among other things but I really like how she added the vintage metal sequins all around the piece.

The first design is beautiful - can you tell me where to get it? If it's yours, you need to publish it quick - I'll bet you get lots of requests for it :-) ! What a wonderful Christmas project....
