Well, it looks as if my  Bin O'Shame WIP Wednesday project turned into a finish. Not that I am complaining! The last post concerning this evening's finish was on Monday, July 27, 2010. Almost five years ago! I remember pulling this one out ever now and again, but it really just didn't grab me at the time. So, back into the  Bin O'Shame it went. It's been between 109 and 111 here lately in Las Vegas, and the colors are so cool and refreshing. I got this one out after last night's clean up from the Ice Cream Sundae finish. I grabbed about three pieces as I wasn't sure which one I wanted to do. This is the one that 'made the cut'. I am not sure how I am going to finish this as of yet. I will probably frame it like the others, however, I will have to wait closer to Christmas time for an appropriate frame. 

Well, here it is! Number 21! 

Design: Winter Side (Message Board Member freebie from 2007).

Designer: Sandra Dering of SanMan Originals

Fabric: 28 count blueberry jobelan

Fibers: Needle Necessities #109 Blue Bayou; DMC Six Strand Embroidery Floss Art. 117 in B5200, 157, 161, 898, 939, and 962. 

Bling Used: DMC Light Effects metallic floss in #E825 Blue Sapphire. Kreinik metallic thread #4 White.  Mill Hill beads in #00168, 00479, and 02014. Silver metallic snowflakes from unknown manufacturer. Carrot nose hand made by Sandra Dering of SanMan Originals

Stitcher's Notes: This is the last of the four in the series. This project makes #21 from the  Bin O'Shame  project for this year.
