As Long As It's Still Snowing...

Seriously?  Snow on the 25th of March?  I guess Mother Nature just wanted me to post lesson #3 of the Melissa Shirley Christmas Village Mystery With a Twist with a fresh coat of the white stuff outside.

Oh well, we'll survive.

Lesson #3 is on it's way to everyone!  The second house has come to life with a thread that I typically don't use, Watercolors.  I manipulated the Holiday colorway to eliminate some of the dark green.  I didn't want the stitching to get too dark.


This cute little house is trimmed with gold beads.  You know I love beads.  The heart above the door is a slightly wonky Rhodes Stitch Heart.


We've added the stones and walkways too throughout the canvas.  Next up, the green house.  I have ideas!  Can't wait to test drive them.


This is a Mystery with a Twist class at Bedecked and Beadazzled.  The lessons are roughly 3 months apart and we have just completed the 3rd lesson.  It's not too late to join us.  All the details are on the website.  Click on Classes and then Mystery Classes.
