First Finish of 2011

I finished up this little sparkly beauty on New Year's day... it was almost January 2nd by the time it was done.  I spotted these cute and beautifully coloured snowflakes a copy of Cross Stitch Gold at Rebbecca's I took advantage of her scanner/copier for a little working copy for myself.

Soon after getting home late Saturday afternoon I couldn't resist any longer and pulled threads and of course very sparkly fabric and got started.

Snowflake - Cross Stitch Gold
Stitched on 28ct opalescent lugana using DMC floss and kreinik blending filament

Thank you Rebbecca, Curt and the boys for having us over for yet another wonderful New Year's Eve, this is the 3rd year of our tradition.  Todd and I make the trek down to their home us girls stitch and the boys enjoy a few adult beverages and we "hang" ring in the New Year together, then fall into bed!  This year I was lucky to witness Rebecca's huge happy dance, Ink Circles Growth Rings while I plugged away at my Air panel on Art Deco Spirits.
