Let It Snow!

It's been a miserable Christmas Eve eve here in Connecticut as we have been dealing with an ice storm all day, BUT, we are promised a white Christmas, so I suppose there's a plus side to things!

After months of having this little wooden sled in my possession, I finally decided to mount one of my favorite winter-themed stitches to the front. Since the pattern is non-Christmas-specific, I changed up a few of the colors to the pattern to make it a little brighter and I just love it. So happy with the way it came out!

The sled was a local thrift shop find that I wish I was able to get a dozen or so more of because it's sooo cute! The one thing I noticed it was missing though was some rope at the top, so I added a little it of twine to finish it off. Then I mounted the stitched piece to some of my favorite wintry fabric and added some snow-covered branches and a snowflake embellishment. I really struggled with letting this one go, but it ended up shipping off to one of my favorite customers, so that made it much easier. That being said, the next time I find a small sled like this, I'm definitely keeping it!

It is a sweet piece. Love the sled! Hope you find another one or two! If you do, then you could make a pattern/template and cut your own. Sorry about the icy conditions, but lucky you on the snow possibility for Christmas.
