The canvas is Be Merry by Associated Talents. It is part of a series they do (Joy, Be Jolly). The border design contains the same repeat of patterns so my stitch guide will work for all 3. And they make a nice grouping. Of course, I like the play on words--that's why I selected the Be Merry (for those of you who may not know--I'm the Mary!).
I decided that I would stitch the background in basketweave since there are going to be so many textures in the different stitches used for the design.
