Winter Snowfall Finish

It is still winter where I am and the snow is still here. In fact we had another 5-6 inches yesterday. Today the sun is shining and I am happy for that. I am also happy that I have another finish for 2022! On February 7 I had finished all of the stitching on my Winter Snowfall project.

Ready for beading

Yesterday I finished putting in the over 1600 beads!


I am so happy to be finished with all of that white and all of those beads. It was so worth it. Another WIP out of the pile! The stats on this one: Winter Snowfall by Shannon Chirstine Designs. I stitched on 16ct Aida Valyrian Steel from Fabrics by Stephanie. DMC colors are 818, 3354 and B5200. Mill Hill beads are 00479 and 40557. I have a new project in mind that I want to start. But it depends on how long it will take to get to me.

That is what I have been up to. What are you working on?

  1. That is utterly stunning. A genuine work of art. An incredible achievement! I’m a knitter so unfamiliar with other yarn art forms; what is this please? Eg needlepoint/tapestry/cross-stitch/something else? It is really beautiful whatever it is and I hope you really enjoyed it and can take pride in it


  2. This is a jaw-droppingly gorgeous piece, Ginny! Every time I look at your beading, I think I should try it out when I finish a stitching project, and then I invariably forget. 🙂


    1. Thank you, Anita. I think beads add another layer of dimension and sparkle. It is that final touch on a project that just makes me happy. You definitely should give it a try. I am thinking of adding some beads to the 2022 Fox and Rabbit SAL. But I am still trying to work out details on that one.

      1. I’ll need to actively think about including beads into a pattern. 🙂 I’m hoping this MSAL will be it, but I haven’t yet found the right opportunity–I’ll wait for it. If you do add embellishments to yours, I’ll be looking forward to checking them out!
