Joy of the Snowflake

But wait!  There's more!  No, this isn't an infomercial.  <grin>  I just like saying it.

Because I finished my other ornaments early, I decided to stitch some more. 

It was the colors that attracted me to this design.  I love the blue and brown, maybe because these are the colors in my bedroom and bathroom.  I also think snowflakes are one of God's most special creations, since no two of them are ever alike. 

This design is Joy of the Snowflake by Little by Little Design Company, from the JCS 2011 Ornament Issue.  I stitched this on white 28 count Monaco evenweave using DMC thread.

This was the first ornament in which I used all cotton batting (Warm and Natural, I believe), and I'm a believer.  It is smooth and even in thickness, and has a firmness to it that polyester batting lacks. 

Oh, and the ornament to the left of the snowflake one in the picture above?  That was the one Phil and I bought the year we were married.

This is such a pretty ornament. I really like the blue and brown together.

This is one of my favorites you have showed so far. All I can say is wow! Great colors and beautiful finish. Maybe it is because I too am a snowflake lover. :-)
