Relaxation in the form of thread

A cut embroidery pattern was calling my name and an instant smile was on my face.  I could kick back in a chair and relax while Ayden watched a Land Before Time movie(his favorites!). 

With all the blue MarkbGone pen it is hard too see my stitching on some areas, but you can get an idea of what I am working on now.  I also had to redo the birdie, it was looking a bit rough around the edges;)  I really like how the two toned thread came out on him though and his little beak is pretty cute!

A few peach toned french knots for the "tree people" eyes and the rest is done in a simple back stitch and some satin stitching as well.  I used a pastel green for the tree outline, soft blue for the first tree's ornaments and greyish purple thread for the next tree.

Wondering what colors to go with for the snow areas on the trees and the ground.  Thinking of mixing white with one of the three colors below.  OR should I buy a pretty variegated thread instead?  Help anyone?

 Maybe I will win some of these for my embroidery projects!  Aren't they super cute:)

Don't forget to set your clocks back an hr! 
Take care,

Hi Sara!

I love to do embroidery also. I recently started doing some small projects also. They are fast, easy, and portable (especially when little ones are involved).

Hmm...thread color? I love variagated. BTW-what kind of thread are you using/

How was your weekend?

I like those happy little trees. How about an irridescent mylar thread to weave into the snow for sparkle?
