Let it snow.....

Christmas stitching continues and
I needed something "cool" to
deal with the hot temps here in
the sunny South this week. 
A fellow blogger...can't remember who...
posted a link to a freebie for these
snowflakes and they were exactly
what I was looking for.
Freebie--Estonian Snowflakes
stitched on 32ct natural linen
w/ Victorian Motto
I had some of the MCG Linen in my stash
and thought this would be a great way
to use it.   It is very rough and not a
pleasant fabric to stitch on but I a
m happy with the finishes.
I toyed with the idea of stitching them twice
so that I could finish both sides into
an ornament with a beaded edge.
Of course my "laziness" reared its ugly
head and I settled with a motif from
each for a simple back finish.

The imperfections of this fabric made
the beading more difficult and the
edges look "sloppy".  That's okay...
they will still be great new
additions to my Christmas tree.

Christmas stitching continues and I
hope to be back soon with three more
Yuletide finishes Plum Street. 
Hope you are staying cool and
enjoying the last of summer. 
Happy stitching....
