Description from Granny Nancy: I wanted some cranberry for Christmas but Pantone's colors for this fall and winter has yucky colors for Christmas. So I conjured this up to suffice.

    Oh NO, Nancy! I haven’t seen the yucky Pantone colors yet. I’ll take yours over theirs any day and twice on Sunday! Merry Christmas in July!

    This is a lovely Christmas in July pick. If it wouldn’t look so funny I would lead my tree up decorated for Christmas year round. Christmas colors are so inviting.

    Thanks ya’ll. I really like it myself. In fact I ordered way too many. But someone else is going to make up a set for a raffle for me. She’s much younger and her fingers still work. I’ll take pictures. She’s very talented.

    Congrats on your fabulous holiday-toned POD, Nancy! I love cranberry for Christmas, and it’s not too early to start making for it, or at least planning! Out of curiosity, what were the Pantone fall and winter colors that seemed to disappoint? I do doubt they were as winning as this shade you’ve chosen for a Christmas color. It’s beautiful in range here and will never go out of style, though not always the easiest shade to find just right.

    Hurray for your Christmas in July pick! Congrats, Nancy! :) the cranberry colors in the Czech, gemstone and crystal beads would work any time of year, IMO. Thank you for your generosity to your community with your contributions.
