This cozy Snowflake Sheep can be found in the Christmas Ornament issue of Just CrossStitch magazine! She’s wrapped in Christmas lights, a warm scarf and Santa hat, with a gift for someone special as she walks through the snow on a starry night.
Let me tell you a little bit about the extra special silk threads used on this happy sheep. They are from Treenway Silks, and each one is hand-dyed. There are 2 colors from their 6-stranded Harmony line, and one from their 65 Roses line, which raises money to help fund research for cystic fibrosis. The thick, shiny, more ropey thread used on the scarf patterning and the lights is one strand of their Tranquility line, and was so much fun to stitch with! They have special kits available on their website so you can stitch this little sheep with the same threads, which would be a nice stitchy treat for the holidays.
I’m hoping to do 2–3 more ornaments using the exact same threads next year, so if you get the kit you’ll be able to use them again! I’m thinking we need a Snowflake Goat, Snowflake Llama… and maybe a Snowflake Yak? What do you think?
