Snow is falling on the birches. It glistens in the sun, and gives a fairyland appearance to the scene.
This design is worked on blue congress cloth, and stitched in Waterlilies and Soie d’Alger French silk. The snowflakes are worked in sparkling threads such as Kreinik braids and Accentuate filament, but some of snowflakes will be opalescent sequins attached with crystal beads.
This scene evokes a bit of magic in what is often a bleak landscape. The design is inspired by the beautiful bags and catalogs used by Nordstroms for Christmas 2010.
