Snowflakes and a Finish

Hello dear blogging friends. A fruitful weekend I'm having.
It's snowflakes galore on Reindeer Games:)
 I'm quite thrilled at how the Light effects thread shines on the pale fabric, it's a little harder to manipulate though, that's why some are uneven... just don't look too close, haha.
 

Now take a step back to yesterday...
What happens if I backstitch fulltime? 
Mini Sampler Mission: Complete!
 I noticed that I had an easier time with the letters and branches as they do not touch the full cross stitches, so it was smooth sailing for me:) I even braved the french knots:
 
Thanks for visiting. Happy Stitching!

  2. Lovely congrats! My bug has left me unfortunately :(. I think it's the holidays...too much stuff to do. I spent like 8 hours today baking Christmas cookies. Great job with the light effects I can't stand that stuff! I much prefer kreinik lol but maybe it's because I stitched an entire big piece with it...

  12. Light effects are not the easiest metalics to work with. They are sparkly, though. Well done on your finishes!
