Advent calendar with elves decorating tree

I'm looking for a pattern that was in a magazine around 1990. It's elves decorating a Christmas tree. The tree and elves are cross stitched and there are 24 cross stitched ornamentsatthaate put on the tree with Velcro. There is a poem that says "these little elves are working hard. Christmas is on its way. Please help them trim the tree and soon... It will be Christmas day!" My kids grew up with this calendar and I would love to make one for each of their home's.

      I recently acquired this advent calendar of the elves decorating the Christmas tree from my mother in law. My mother in law gave it us and told me that my husband's grandma made this and he grew up using it, it is missing some of the decorations and I am looking to find the replacements so our children can grow up with the same advent calendar my husband used as a child. Is there any way you can help me with replacing the missing pieces? I dont mind if I even have to make the ones that are missing or have to purchase all the pieces. I just want to be able to pass this wonderful tradition onto my children. Thanks Go to top

        I am looking for this pattern as well. My Mom made me the calendar but my kids seem to have lost 21 of the calendar pieces. Does anyone know where to find the pattern?
