|A "snowball" from Kristie W. in IN.|
I found the adorable little snowman difficult to capture with my camera. (You can enlarge any photo by clicking on it.) The close-up below was taken at an angle and the camera focused on the beads at the bottom, putting the top out of focus, but it does show more detail of the snowman.

The variegated blue ribbon holding the lace down on the right is fantastic. The star plays wonderfully with the light. The beaded star in the upper-left section is fabulous, and I love all the beads along the bottom. The little white snowflakes are wonderful!
The way the beads and silver bits in the fabric play with the light make me anxious to see this beauty dancing with the reflections of Christmas lights!
Thank you, Kristie! I absolutely love this little treasure!
For those of you new to my blog, I belong to a Yahoo! group called Crazy Quilting International and we have an on-going "snowball" swap. This makes the 5th snowman/winter themed snowball in my collection and I absolutely love it!
