Freebie ~ Snowflake Quaker II

Snowflake Quaker II

The light has changed, the days are getting longer, and each year at this time some of the most beautiful skies I’ve ever seen fill me with hope.  The sky is wide because there are no leaves to crowd it out.  Its colors are soft and subtle … these skies are the very earliest promise of spring.

It’s going to snow soon, so what better time for another Snowflake Quaker on the palest of pink sky linen?  You’ll need to see the symbol chart as most of the colors are quite pale, and the symbols make it easier to see.  The French Knot symbols are for Beads to be sewn on top of cross stitches in the same color as the rest of the snowflake.  I couldn’t get the Bead symbol to work properly and finally gave up and used a large French Knot symbol.

The design is under copyright and for your personal stitching pleasure only.

Merry Christmas!
