I found these two Christmas embroideries in old books bought at flea-markets. Above a wool embroidery (from the book "Hemslöjdens Arbeten Andra delen" from 1956) called "Staffanskudden" and it's really a pity that the photo is only in black and white! It says that it's embroidered on a blue-green fabric with threads in white and pink etc. Unfortunately I don't have the pattern for that.
The second embroidery is a pattern from a booklet that tragically is missing it's covers. I think it's so cute but isn't it a bit dangerous carrying a mug of what I guess is "mumma", beer or glögg in one hand and candles in the other? He's obviously already a bit tipsy and he's walking down a slope so I wonder what happens next... ;)
