Criss-Cross Snow

Just in time for winter, Needlepoint For Fun has a great snowy skies stitch.

If you aren't familiar with the stitch, Pat Timpanaro has done a lovely numbered diagram for the ANG website.

I am not certain what threads Needlepoint For Fun used but it looks like Caron's Snow to me.  I happen to love that thread!  Of course Silk Lame Braid, Kreinik metallics and a lot of other threads will also work. Raid your stash and see what you can find.

Here's to beautiful icy snowy skies this winter--but only on our stitching!
