This piece of stitch work took some time to do. It is called Mill Pond and was published in the February 2004 edition of The Cross Stitcher magazine. The design is by Julia Lucas. This is the first project that I did using the Kreinik thread. Kreinik is a fine metallic filament thread that you use for blending with your regular thread to give your work a little sparkle. This is what I used with the snow stitches to give it a little shimmer. I'm not sure I used it correctly but it turned out pretty anyway. Click photo for an enlargement.
