Getting Ready for Snow...

...Snow as in the next word on my embroidery piece. I have completed stitching everything in green and started with the read thread on Friday.  I was too busy over the weekend to put in a single stitch.
The crayon tinting is interesting but next time I think I will color with a much lighter hand, as much as I like the bright colors I would prefer a more subtle tint but that's why I attended the class in the first place to learn.
The use of variegated thread gives the piece a bit of pizzazz and makes the stitching a bit unique here most notable on the green ferns, the embroidery threads are six strand by Cosmo the colors are vibrant and feel like silk (I seem to get lots of tangles no matter what length I cut the thread).

Over all I like how the piece is coming along and the same state of relaxation claims me as I stitch away each stitch.


  1. Hi Deb,
    Thank you for sharing your project with us. Interesting that you say that you get tangles with the Cosmo threads. I have never used that brand before. I guess that is to be expected with any type of floss. I get a lot of tangles with DMC floss.
    I have seen the color chart from Cosmo and they have some very pretty colors.
    Have a wonderful evening.

  2. Wow this is looking amazing, I really think it's pretty. I love the colour that you added to it, it brings a whole new dimension to it.
    I love using variegated threads... Your doing a wonderful job and I cannot wait to see the finished piece.
    Smiles :)

  3. What a beautiful design! It really look fantastic already.
    Can't wait to see more :)
