January Cottage of the Month Finish!

Just a few more stitches and it's all done! I still have to mount it to a board and finish it to hang. I have a wood perpetual calendar that needs to be painted but till then I'll keep these to make into hanging boards. I love this series and I can't wait to get March. I'll start February today I think.

 Details of the snowflakes. The second one is a bit blurry but it shows the sparkles.

The snowman has a bit of shine as well as I used a bit of DMC 5727 white pearlescent thread. I don't recommend it for this only in that it was super hard to work with. It was far stiffer than the Glissen Gloss Rainbow blending thread in #000. That was easy to use as most blending threads are.

Love what you did with the snowflakes. I want to look for something like that to use...hate when the snowflakes don't show up!
