Christmas finish.

Here is my Frosty Mugs hanging on Christmas Day. You can see a tapestry snowman pillow given to me by a friend and another snowman tree on the table to the left.

A it closer look at the whole piece.

I hand quilted this piece.
 I don't like to use fusible products so I decided to add a bit of embroidery to the snow balls. Here is a bit of a closer look. I quilted the faces on the diagonal.
 First one way...
 Then the other. I let the fabric help me choose. I used a creamy white YLI quilt thread for the faces and did the embroidery of the snowflakes with a perle cotton thread
 Each snowflake is different from the last.
 I outlined the shape of the embroidery.
I then did diagonal quilting lines on the dark background in black.  I think they turned out rather nicely.
