I finished stitching up the "Let It snow" snowman:This was so fun to stitch. I am surprised at how good the white floss shows up on my white fabric! I really like the way it looks.You might notice that I used my newly learned herringbone stitch to decorate the band around the broom: Much as I love the white-on-white look of this project, I am excited to try stitching some snowmen and especially snowflakes on this new pale blue colored fabric I just bought:
See that white pearl cotton floss? I bought that and some black along with these other pearl cottons:It is less expensive to buy these spools of the pearl cotton than the skeins. However, at my fabric store, they have a very limited color selection of the spool floss - by limited selection I mean only black and white!
