Forest Snowfall Wreath

 Happy New Year!~
I have  had a busy week taking down Christmas and getting the winter decor out.. I did manage to finish this Forest Snowfall from Country Cottage Needleworks yesterday!
 I had this flocked wreath hanging on my basement door after I took down the Christmas wreath and decided it was the perfect place for the Forest Snowfall piece! This was a stitchalong with Chelsea and I that started on December 28.. It was a fun, fast and pretty piece to stitch!
I mounted it on sticky board.. and then mounted a piece of red ticking on sticky board.. glued those 2  pieces together and then glued a long piece of ribbon on the back to tie it to the wreath .. Much easier than gluing.. I wanted the red since I love blue and red together for winter..It is stitched on  28 count light blue evenweave that I tea / coffee dyed..
I added a little battery opperated glitter house to the top with lots of white snowy looking picks.. a couple of pinecone pics and red plaid ribbon..It is so pretty and looks like the perfect winter wreath!

Another beautiful creation... I haven't finished my Forest Snowfall yet. I'm thinking that I'll put it on an easel in a tablescape. My usual thanks for all of your sharing of ideas. I am always inspired.

Very pretty finish! At the rate I'm going, it will be next winter before I finish Forest Snowfall!

Another amazing finish, I have this on my list but I need to do some Valentine's day. I hope to do a box of little pillows.

I absolutely LOVE this finish, Priscilla--what a wonderfully creative mind you have :) The little lit-up house makes a perfect accent!

It's so nice to come here & see your finished piece, it's lovely!. I have just got down to & finished the first row of windows on the house...I was surprised to see how big this piece is! I can't wait to finish it & move on to more CCN & LHN projects <3
