  1. Πολύ όμορφη χριστουγεννιάτικη δημιουργία αν και μου φαίνεται λιγάκι δύσκολο για μένα. Θα μπορούσε να είναι και όμορφο δωράκι για αγαπημένα πρόσωπα. Ευχαριστούμε για την ωραία αυτή ιδέα!

  2. Ειρήνη μου, η δυσκολία του είναι στην εναλλαγή των χρωμάτων με τα κουβάρια. Δουλεύεται με δύο χρώματα στις σειρές που έχει το σχέδιο. Για σένα, Ειρήνη μου, με όλο το θάρρος, δεν νομίζω ότι αποτελεί δυσκολία. Σ'ευχαριστώ για τα καλά σου λόγια.
