I recently joined a xstitch forum, and once on there I just had to join their various exchanges. This one is an ATC (Artist Trading Card) exchange, with the theme Winter and/or Snow. ATC’s are restricted on size, they should always be 2.5 x 3.5 inches, so I chose to do it on 16 count aida so I could fit more on to it. The motif is from a Luxury chart book which I believe was a freebie with World Of Cross Stitching in September or October, I changed the colours, stitching the snowman with white DMC metallic thread. It was a pain but it looks much better than the charted pale blue. The stars and writing was made with Madeira metallic thread which were also freebies except I can’t remember from where, and the border was made with a mix of madeira metallic and DMC cotton.
