Another "behind the scenes" finale

Patchwork Snowman, designed by Liz Goodrick-Dillon, was the subject of my column in the November/December issue of Needlepoint Now.  Here it is, in its two-foot-plus splendor, as finished by Needle Nicely in Vero Beach, Florida.

This was a fun and challenging canvas:  there are a lot of little details and a tremendous amount of fur trim in this design!  But a lot of different threads were used--Petite Very Velvet, Silk Lame Braid, Impressions, Burmilana, Felicity's Garden, Kreinik metallics and DMC cotton floss--which made it easier to sustain momentum in stitching.

The stocking is a companion to Nutcracker Christmas and will be a Christmas present for my darling new daughter-in-law.  Another family wedding is scheduled for 2016, so I need to get cracking on another set of stockings!

I love her patchwork vest with all the details.
