'Frosty Flakes' snowflakes BOM

Do you love snowflakes? I do and they remind me so much
of Christmas in the Northern Hemishere,
running around with my mittens and hat on in the snow,
playing snowball fights and building snowmen.

Frosty Flakes is my new FREE BOM
I wanted to share with you,
to make in time for Christmas.

It will run for the next 10 weeks starting today
and every Wednesday for 10 weeks
9 snowflakes to make, one a week for 9 weeks,
week 10 being the assembly instructions
for a delightful Christmas wall hanging.
Please grab the button above for your blog
and spread the news around, so everyone can join in.
You can also use the pattern to do a stitchery as well
without the hexagons if you wish.


You will need:
nine 5" fabric charm squares for snowflakes
nine 6 1/2" fabric squares for background
beads for embellishment
threads for stitchery (match to your fabrics)
appox 10" WOF of background for sashings.
assorted 1 1/2" squares for border.
( I have used a Kate Spain 12 days of Christmas
for Moda charm pack) with leftovers.

Click HERE for your FREE pattern
to start stitching today!
Happy Stitching
Sweet Cinnamon-y Hugs
