Am I Blue?

No, actually, I'm quite happy--I finished the blue basketweave background for the Snowflake twins!

Now that all the blue is in place, I think the white Stardust costumes stand out even more. I added toe slippers in a satin stitch using DMC floss #818 to celebrate.

All that remains now are the snowflakes in the background to stitch--an opportunity to add some more glitter to this canvas. I'm still painting by day and stitching by night, but hope to have this canvas completed by the weekend.

Delightful! I can't wait for the snowflakes to finish this charming ornament.

The thread is a perfect choice for the dresses - These ladies are delightful, as all of them are. Simplicity is good!! They are floating as they dance.

I love the little snowflakes around the edge!
