Welcome to a fresh snow blog hop.
Getting right to it:
Snow scenes are so fun and this hop was a perfect excuse for me to make one of my favorite patterns.

I'm not an all or nothing kind of girl. I like to add just a touch of "other" to my mostly cotton designs. In this case, I decided on the tree in the background. I wanted a naked winter tree. So, I headed off to the store to look for one. I wandered around the aisles looking for something, I don't know, eye-catching. Then, I found it...
IT WAS PERFECT!
Mossy bark in a roll.
But would it work?
I decided to treat it like cotton fabric. I added the fusible...cut out the pieces...ironed it in place...even stitched it down.
It worked beautifully! It was just how I envision it would be.
It did shed a bit and it did turn my fingers yellow for a while but it was worth it.
(Also my first try at hand embroidery for the wrought iron parts. It's not as perfect as I wanted but you have to start somewhere right?)
Oops, I got so excited to finish that I forgot to add the border. Oh well, maybe next time.
Thank you for coming.
