Snowdrift Table Runner - Snowflake #7

Baby, it's cold outside!

Snowman joke -
What does the snowman like to ride?
An "icicle"

Snowflake #7

Using simple stitches, adding buttons and beads, this a pretty quick snowflake to stitch up.
The first step is to whip stitch the small circle to the medium circle using the Sulky 12wt thread.
  Then embroider these two before stitching them onto the large circle.  

If you look closely at my snowflake it's pretty obvious that my stitches are not uniform and that's perfectly OK!  Nothing in nature is perfect so my stitching isn't either.  There isn't a need to trace the design.  These are simple enough to eyeball.  If you feel you need a little help, you can use a Pilot FriXion pen which will disappear with the heat of an iron or another type of temporary marking tool.

Snow Cones!

The Snow Cones pattern will be ready shortly!  This pattern will include directions for making these 6 wool cones PLUS a sheet of vintage Christmas images to add to your cones!
You will need a piece of wool 14" x 14" to create these 6 cones.
I'm assembling 48 kits filled with greens, berries, bells, the pattern, and more!
These kits, and the pattern, will be available on my website on September 30th at 9am Pacific time.  Mark your calendars! I will remind you again when the date gets closer.

Kits will be listed under the "KITS" tab.
KIT - $24.99 Includes the pattern / add wool for $4.00 more.
*The cones in the picture are filled using 1 of the KITS

The cording is made from DMC Ecru floss using a Kreinik Cord Winder.
1 skein of floss is enough to create the cording for 3 Snow Cones.
You will need 2 skeins for all 6 Snow Cones.

Thanks again for stitching along with me!
