Jane Goes Skiing

Once I saw Sheena's snow stitch (link below), I decided to do a round up of canvases with snow and skiing. After all, I love cross country skiing! I don't do downhill as I have no talent for it (except for falling sideways onto the snow while wearing those skis--which apparently is quite difficult). But before we go there and my brother shows you the videos, let's look at Sheena's stitch diagram.

Now for the ski canvases.  Karen Cruden of Ewe and Eye has some classic snowmen designs.  Candy Rush is the gold standard of her series.

Sweet Stuff is smaller, more intimate as is Peppermint Twist (second link below).

Sweet Ride is similar.  Fun!

Shelly Comiskey has three Sledz canvases that are small and feature snowmen on traditional sleds.

Ok, those are my favorites.  What are yours?
