Don't faint...it's a finish!

I am taking part in a very relaxed RR with a facebook group.  This is what I stitched for Linzie for her theme of snowmen.  I used Six Stranded Sweets to stitch it and think the colours turned out well.  I got the buttons this morning so I could finish it.  You can tell but they have a wavy stripe through them and look lovely as the snowballs from close up.

I had to redesign the border slightly as the square turned out to be 70 x 66 and the original design was 69 stitches tall. It was a quick stitch even though it was on and off stitching :)

It looks great Sharon! Congratulations on finishing the design : ) Six Strand Sweets ... I remember them from long ago. About 2 years ago I got a big bag full of them for a pretty good price. I've never opened the bag or used them though. I know, I need help : )
