I had designed my Sailing Into Christmas sailboats, and showed it on my blog - one of my blog readers, Terry, suggested that all the sailboats needed was a lighthouse! That was all the inspiration I needed to create one. It does go perfectly with my sailboats! Wouldn't you just love a nautical Christmas? This pattern is a stitchery only - how you use it will be up to you! There is a color suggestion list, although I strongly recommend you match your colors to the fabric you use - and a suggestion for uses.
