Description: A charming almost-symmetrical design stitched in the traditional shades of winter: green, gold, red and lots of white! The design makes use of various white-work stitches and is accented with beads.

Comments by Teresa Wentzler:

Background Information: This small ornament was designed as a teaching piece. I taught it years ago (I can't remember the year: sorry!) as an introduction to the specialty stitch techniques used in "Father Winter".

Stitching Comments: Since this design is very small, it is an excellent introduction to my charting and designing techniques. The abundance of specialty stitches crammed into the design make it a bit of a challenge to stitch. While it can be finished as an ornament, it would also work nicely as a sachet... or, stitched on a finer count fabric, it would make a very elegant scissors fob.
