I decided to stitch this on Monday night, it's a freebie pattern available on the VS Yahoo group. Actually, it's a pattern for a competition on the group, which ended last night. The pattern will eventually be added as a freebie to the VS website. I stitched mine using DMC threads, on 28 vintage beige cashel.
There were snowflakes on the pattern, and also red cardinals, but I chose not to stitch them. I did start on a snowflake but it just did not show up well on the fabric. I had these small red Jade hearts in my stash, so I stitched those on where the snowflakes were meant to be. I wanted to add a red button to the centre but couldn't find anything suitable, so I added these gems, I can't remember the name of them, but they were something I had in my stash. I added bright red satin fabric under the hardanger hearts, and then it was finished. I did not add beads around the edges, as nothing I had seemed suitable. I love the design around the edge with it's little pine cones.
