|A snowball for Donna in Montana|
This is for my third snowball swap; this one is with Donna in Montana. One of the themes she mentioned she liked was a pond with cattails and critters.
|Swan pattern from DMC Collection: Mini Motif Designs by Mary Bartley Stockett|
A few lazy daisy stitches using green and pink 4mm silk ribbons was all it took to make a few lily pads.
|Directions to make this snail were found in Diana Lampe's Embroidery for all Seasons.|
The tips of the cattails were made with gathered brown 4mm silk ribbon.
No pond scene is complete without a dragonfly, is it? I love these shimmery blue beads. I used 4mm light blue silk ribbon for the wings.
I do hope Donna likes it!
