Fresh Fallen Snow


The Little House Needleworks ornament in this year's JCS ornament magazine was one of my favourites.  I didn't have the recommended Belle Soie threads so I went with Crescent Colours Toasted Marshmellow and Weeping Willow, which matched perfectly to some green felt I had in my stash.

What was I just saying about our lovely weather yesterday? Its pouring down out there this morning, typical spring!

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon x
