Brrrr!

Here's my second finish of 2008!

Brrr by San Man Originals


I stitched this in 6½ hours on 14ct baby blue aida with DMC floss. It was embellished with beads for eyes, and buttons for a nose and snowflake. I also added backstitching around the snowman to make it stand out a bit more.

I love it Meari!
Think we'll still be shoveling/blowing snow in June? Later I will update my blog with pics of the stuck mail truck a few houses down from us. :op

Great finish! I think that outlining the snowman was a good idea; really makes him pop even more.
