From the land of Hiawatha, I wish you a Merry Christmas! So many things here in Michigan are named after the fictional Indian, I just had to have a canoe design worthy of him. This pattern is for the stitchery design only - I do give you a color list of floss used, although I always recommend that you match your floss colors to your fabric used in finishing. I also tell you how to color with pencils, and make sure they're permanent! Coloring isn't just for kids, and it really adds an impact to your stitcheries. Besides, it's fun!
