Today's update on the Snow & Ice Stocking is a heart design. Carole Samples templates helped me to get this somewhat straight, along with good spacing and sizing. The thread is the Wildflowers that I have been using all along. A few pink beads decorate the straight stitches, which are not very even.
Up in the little patch to the left is a bow, done in the Sassa Lynne fine perle, parchment....oh by the way....I found this thread taking a nap right where I put it last. The other thread is still MIA, it will turn up one of these days, just when I least expect it. grin.
On a bit of a different note. I have this beautiful antique cabinet, given to me by my MIL & FIL.
It has a wonderful old key, which needed a little adornment, so I attached a tassel and some beads, thought you might enjoy seeing it. So here ya go. Click for a closer look.
