I SAID i was going to start on next year’s postcards(this year’s now.lol) early!
I had a small sqaure of Aida and decided to cross stitch some small motifs to use on the next batch of holiday postcards.

#1 is the first one I did….did the word first and decided it needed a border. Then decided it needed snowflakes.

#2 is what happened when i looked at the snowflakes and wondered what they would look like if they were all in a row.

#3 is what happened when i wanted to use the basic design for the snowflake and see if it would make a good blackwork motif.
