Are you looking for a fun new winter project that has lots of happy colors and patterns and just plain boosts your spirits during these dreary winter months? Why not consider my newest panel design, called SNOWMAN PANEL:
I wanted to create something fun and colorful; something that evokes the chill of a winter's day, but also has lots of happy colors -- in this case, I chose the variegated Watercolours 236 - "Appalachia" with its vibrant blues, greens and purples for my foundation thread, then found the #5 pearl cottons and metallic ribbons to match. It's happy, happy, happy stitchin', I tell ya....
I had so much fun thinking up the different snowflake-like patterns to stitch in the main boxes, and then I definitely wanted the picture box to have a snowman.... and wait, I also had to add two cute bunnies! Plus a few small pine trees give the vignette an extra wintery feel. A smattering of crystal beads add a bit of sparkle as well. Here's a peek up-close:
Working on the leventeen blue canvas was another perk for this project. (Or you could also use the slightly darker antique blue canvas, if that's available to you instead.)
So if you love snowmen.... or bunnies.... or anything with snowflakes.... you might want to add this cheerful pattern to your winter stash. Please ski on over to my website to see all the other ordering information for this fun, new SNOWMAN PANEL!
