Barb, can you please share the name of the embroidery patterns for those adorable snow flakes?
I think Marie Osmond had something similar years ago..

I have been making snowflakes and angels for three years now. They have lovely snowflake designs at Embroidery Library and that's were I got my first designs. There are nice ones at Secrets of Embroidery. These are FSL (free standing lace) and they must be stitched on water soluble stabilizer. I use cotton thread (50 wt) from Connecting Threads on top and pre-wound white bobbins. Also, use a regular needle in your machine, size 70 or 75.

FSL is a labor of love. It takes 4 hours to stitch out the lace for an angel (less for the small ones). The snowflakes take 45-60 minutes or so to stitch out. You can find the angel patterns at Urban Threads.

I received one, too. It's hanging on my tree. It reminds me of M* & all the love from Forum friends. It really made my Christmas special! God bless you, Barb.
