Finished Stitching Snowflake

This is my first finish of the year ~ YAY! A fluffy white snowflake ornament stitched on a 28 count Cashel Linen solo fabric from Silkweaver that my son picked out of the stash cabinet.

The fabric color makes me think of a winter sky at dusk when there’s lots of fluffy snow on the ground and a snowman in the yard. I do wish Ethan had picked one of the many opalescent fabrics I have in my stash, because I’m suddenly wishing there was some sparkle here. I may go back and add a bit of blending filament to the stitches at random places just for a little bit more personality to little Mr. Snowflake here.

This second picture the camera strap fell in front of the flash as I snapped the button, but I sort of like the dark effect so I thought I’d share this one too.

Happy Stitching!

About Loretta Oliver

I’ve been a cross stitcher since I was 8 years old. It was something I learned as a Girl Scout when we did a project for a badge related to crafts and the group choose to cross stitch a holiday design on a red sweatshirt using waste canvas. (Talk about hard first project, that was such a pain!) I was one of the first ones finished and I’ve had a needle in my hand almost every day since then.
