Let it snow is finished

The "big reveal" has occured on the message board, so I can now show this finish. It was a quick one, only taking 3 days. Here are the details:

  • Name of the design is "Let it snow"
  • Chart is a freebie, chosen as the January design for the monthly freebie challenge at the 123 stitch message board which I am participating in. It is a Barbara Ana design, available here
  • Fabric is 28 count monaco - my favourite - in "sea swirls" by now defunct company Enchanted Fabrics. My favourite hand dyed company too :-(
  • Thread is DMC. I switched a few of the called for colours to suit me. Stitched with 2 over 2.
  • Stitch count is 33 x 48
  • Started on January 15th 2013
  • Completed on January 17th 2013

The changes I made were not stitching the eyes, I swapped them for googly eye buttons. I also stitched the word snow entirely in blue instead of the "o" in white (I just realised I wasn't meant to do that now!). I only stitched every second stitch in the border to give it a different look and added some mini star buttons instead of stitching a snowflake in the bottom right corner.

I stitched this just before christmas. I did it on a fabric with a silver thread running through it which looked lovely. Now you are ahead in this year's ornament stakes for 2013 christmas.
