‘Snowflakes’, details

”Snowflakes” was a kit I purchased at a store or through a catalog – not sure which – but it is copyrighted.  So, I can’t copy anything for anyone.  I don’t know how to contact the designer (Marjorie Gosz) or if the company (Spinnerin Yarn Co., Inc.) still exists.

The design was stamped or printed on 50% rayon /50% polyester fabric. The trees were made using white 100% rayon textured yarn worked in a straight stitch of various lengths. It required a large needle (~3” long with a huge eye – not sure of the size #) & gentle pulling through the fabric. The snowflakes used white cotton floss also worked in a straight stitch of various lengths. Along the bottom are a few stem stitches.  I used all 6 strands of the floss that I didn’t separate before using b/c I hadn’t heard about separating threads & the kit didn’t say to do that – so I didn’t.

Simple can be stunning.
