Quaker Snowman

Just got word it arrived!!

Every year, I try to do at least one Christmas ornament exchange. This year, I participated in the HOE swap. This what I sent to Marie in WV.

Quaker Snowman
Designer: Midnight Stitching
Fabric: 32ct Maroon Linen (brand unknown)
Fibers: Six Strand Sweets, DMC
Embellishments: Runched Ribbon


I think she likes it since she said it has a prominent spot on her tree already! It was hard to send off!

I am sure this ornament is very well liked. It is one of my favourite cross stitch designs.
I love the colours of the greenery, also a favourite thread.
