For the last few years I have stitched a a sampler from The Victoria Sampler - so I decided to break up the trend and look for something different. I would this offering from The Drawn Thread and loved the verse as well as the snow coverd house scene at the top and the animals with a snowman in the center. I did use the recommended silk floss, and framed in a cherry frame.
If you stitch designs from The Drawn Thread and feel the silk to expensive, you might not know that she uses the same color palette, and the silk seems to go a long way. Sometimes it is worth the price - also they give hand-dyed floss alternates for all silks on their web site.
