Catching the snow!

I've got a little finish!
How do you like it??





A dancing snowman trying to catch snowflakes



This is a chart from Aliolka Designs



Stitched on 14ct pewter grey aida fabric
using 3 DMC colours of my choice.




Finished off very simply as a small cushion
using Belleboo fabric from my stash

oOoOoOo

I'm still busy stitching away on more Christmassy designs.

The lovely folksy trio from The Prairie Schooler
in the latest issue of the Cross Stitch Collection magazine
really caught my eyes... I'm hooked :)
I have finished my first one and am currently working on a second one.

Thank you for kindly mentioning these on your blog Jacquie!


OoOoOoO

There is still time to enter my Lizzie Kate giveaway!
Stay tuned, I'll be announcing a lucky winner soon


Toodles,
Mii

    1. Thank you Nurdan. The fabric colour is actually much lighter in "real", I thought it would look quite nice!
