Over the weekend the weather was beautiful, spring-like, sunny and warm, truly delightful. A reprieve from winter weather isn't all that unusual, but it is usually short. It won't be long before snow will come again. (It could be snowing as you read this, but more likely it's rain.)
Friday's storm made skiers happy as it dumped quite a bit on the peaks, and if you look carefully, you'll see how very, very white the peak is. (This is not your usual view, it's the mountain to the right.)
The pillow is about 14" square
Because this Santa has a very warm cap, he is happy to play in the snow. Surrounding him are the silly, joyful snowmen who live for days of cold and snow. Many threads, in shades of white, create sparkling snow, and stitches create a different look for each snowman. Santa's mustache is stitched in French Knots and the curl of his hair is made with bullion stitches. The finisher did a magnificent job with the pillow by adding a thick ruched edge.
