First Recital Cross Stitch Design by TreasuredTapestry

First Recital is a charming design of two little girls performing at their first dance recital. There's nothing more heartwarming than watching the first year dancers at a recital. They always entertain. Sometimes they stop and put their little hand over their eyes to search the audience for Mom and Dad. Sometimes they are all doing their own version of the dance. Some are shy, some are very outgoing, and all are endearing.

Stitch this design to commemorate your child's first dance recital. Design includes an alphabet for personalizing. Design also includes hair / eye / skin / nationality color variations so you can personalize the dancer(s) to look like your special ballet dancer. Enjoy!
