This small piece is moving along very well. I have stitched the snowman with Silk Lame Braid, added the eyes and mouth with Kreinik #8 black braid, and stitched his nose with a rusty orange in Padded Satin stitch. His scarf is done in two shades of Splendor Silk.
I still have to stitch the hat, his stick arm and the trees. When all the Basketweave is done, then I will go back and stitch the snowflakes on top of everything else. I did make a color copy of the canvas before I started stitching so I would know where they all go.
