Pretty Snowflake


This is the first Ornament of the year that I will be stitching. I started it this weekend. It is the Victorian Lace Snowflake of Rosewood Manor. This is on Page28 in the2007 Christmas Ornament Just cross stitch Magazine. I changed the color of the thread to DMC 807 and the beads I will be using are Antique Glass Beads .o3o35 [peacock color] It will take the whole pkg. of beads.
To see it finished my friend Kathy did it in the color it asked for. Look here.
It is just beautiful so I thought I would do it as well. I love to bead!


Here is the Moonlight Guardian progress for this week. I think it is going to be very pretty! Lots of Sparkles. I'm off to do some stitching this afternoon because I have Choir practice tonight.
Have a nice day. Stitch with happy fingers.

Nice start on the snowflake girl! I look forward to seeing it done in your colors. Moonlight Guardian is coming along nicely too.

That snowflake will be so beautiful! I like your color choices. It looks like a good deal of work to sew on all the beads. Do you have a certain amount of ornaments you stitch each year?

I don't know the chart Moonlight Garden so I will have to look it up.

This is a beautiful design, I had a quick peek in the 2007 JCS ornament issue. I do love the colour you have chosen, I look forward to seeing your progress.

MG is really coming along well, it's a shame that the photos just don't pick up the sparkly bits well.
