So I did this piece for the next window we are doing in the craft shop I work at. Since we're in Minnesota, it seemed that "Winter" was a good theme for us.

It's in a 10 inch hoop, and the art is from Urban Threads.

I really love this piece - I've been wanting to stitch it for a while, glad that I finally had a reason to - rather than just wanting i, ha.
I just wanted to share it with everyone.





EDIT: Updated picture with boots filled in!

I saw that piece last year and didn't think I could do it justice...but you sure as heck did! 

That is fantastic...I am in awe of the way you curved the fill stitches...it gives the piece movement!

AWESOME JOB!

Inside a dog it's too dark to read.

Beautiful fill work!
I started this pattern too, with a red cape and stars.
I love your winter version.

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

Oh so beautiful! It actually reminds me of a childrens book. Can't remember what it's called.

Thanks everyone!

I've been looking at it, and debating on filling in her boots...not sure with what color though. Maybe the light blue that is the "lining" of her coat?
