Baby it's cold outside.......

 or so I've been told by my friends in the north.  You probably recognize this as a Cricket design and you'd be right.  I stitched it on 18ct. flax linen using DMC floss and the finishing I saw on a French website and I instantly fell in love with how they did this. 
I have another one of these planned but I'm still looking for the perfect cross stitch design in browns and reds.  If you like this one, you can find it in my store.
I'm starting a commissioned piece that should take me a few days and I'll be sure to post pics when I'm finished with it.  Until then, stay warm.
As always, Barbara

This is gorgeous! A pleasant thing to look out while we're in the midst of horrible snow yet again. Debra in Snowy CT
