CNN Showcase blog

I have become a member of the CNN Showcase and SAL Blog so that it will inspire me to do Frosty Forrest which I have signed up to to receive as a auto ship from The Patchwork Rabbit here in the UK.
There was a WIP challenge this weekend this is what I did I was fortunate to receive this as an exchange this week but had already decided to stitch it already, so I will give it away in my next exchange.

It is the CNN Snow Birds from this years Just Cross-Stitch Christmas Ornament issue.
