Snow Garden

Sometimes when I finish one big project, I pull out a little one, rather than start another large one.  Tonight I pulled this out of the stash pile (and it did not topple on me!).  It is a Carol J. Algie Design for Rainbow Gallery and it is worked on a 6 x 6 piece of white 18 count.  I started in the center and did four Cushion stitches using Rainbow Gallery Alabaster.  Next a border row of Gobelin and corner Smyrna Crosses in Encore.  The third row is slanted Gobelin in Flair, and the final two rows are alternating Mosaic using the Alabaster again.  This section went fairly fast and I am leaving it in the rotation for next week.  This will be made in to an ornament.

Lucky Pat to have a nice stash to pull designs from! It's like a rabbit from a top hat--we enjoy seeing what new delights appear.

I can sympathize on needing something small and easy after a big project, especially now in the Christmas season.

This has jump started my memory, and reminded me of some mitered ribbon pillows I used to do in the 70's - the centers were much like this. Now I have something to work on!! Thanks!
