I'm a Leo. It follows that I am attracted to all things "Lion" so, not a real surprise that my favorite Christmas theme has always been “And the Lion Shall Lay Down with the Lamb.” I’ve long wished to create an ornament kit embodying that imagery but I’m not much of a church-goer and I didn't want to misrepresent anything from the bible so, I did a little research.

And guess what!...

There is no passage in the bible that reads, “and the lion shall lay down with the lamb.” The saying – it turns out – is simply a handily-alliterative shorthand version of a verse from the Book of Isaiah;

Isaiah 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

Personally, I don’t think it really matters. Because irrespective of whether we’re talking about lions or leopards, kids or calves, this is a tableau about peace, tolerance and kindness, a picture of the strong shielding the weak. It's a symbol of hope for the best we, as humans, can achieve. And given the challenges, pain and suffering wrought by 2020… who among us couldn’t benefit from a little peace and kindness?

Amee Runs with Scissors' 2020 Christmas Ornament Kit “And the Lion Shall Lay Down with the Lamb” features a sweet, sparkling white lamb enfolded lovingly in the embrace of a cozy, patchwork lion. This bas-relief, mixed-media soft-sculpture incorporates embroidery and bead embroidery. It is worked on fabric printed from one of Amee's original illustrations and is ideal for beginner or advanced stitchers. Kits include printed fabric already bonded to beading foundation, Ultrasuede, beads, sequins, embroidery thread, ribbon, beading thread, beading needle, embroidery needle and – of course – our “Whole Story,” full-color, photographed, step-by-step instructions.

To complete this project, you will need scissors and API washable fabric glue.
