Being A Little Selfish...

Today I should of worked on Debby's Neighbourhood RR. Well I had a fit of selfishness, and stitched an ornament for myself instead!

The Prarie Schooler
c2007 - Freebie
32ct Mushroom Lugana, DMC cotton & Mill Hill Beads

I made some changes to the freebie as the snowflakes in the sky were stitched in the same green as the tree. Also the snowman's hat, eyes, nose, and buttons were all done in the same red as the scarf. I didn't like what they had done in the model so I stitched his hat black, used white beads for the snowflakes and black beads for the eyes and buttons. I also used some orange for his carrot nose. Much better!

Tomorrow I'll tackle that RR!

That giant spider in the photos of the Canadian Art Gallery would spook kids visiting! Reminds me of the ones living at the back of our yard behind the bird aviaries...slightly smaller though.

Sounds like the colors called for in the design weren't all that hot. I like your substitutions much better.
