Cross-Stitch Fever

It would seem that my craftiness goes in spurts...baking...x-stitch...paper. Right now I'm on a x-stitch roll!

This is a Janlynn chart, Winter Sampler. It's a ton of fun to stitch because it's mostly full x-stitches, and only 2 blends. At the suggestion of the shop lady, I'm adding a bit of metallic thread to the white where snow is represented. (It's hard to see in the photo, but it's in the top border and in the snowflakes in the heart.) It's a huge project, but because it's a sampler, it's easy to do in sections.
