33. Forget-Me-Not in Stitches 1862 Snowflake


stitched on 28 count Millenium Blue evenweave

1862 Snowflake by Forget-Me-Not in Stitches from JCS Christmas Ornie Special 2010

I used silver thread instead of beads around the outside and didn't use the petite white beads charted.
You can see the shape of the snowflake much better without them.
