"Winter Playtime" by Meredith Mark

I stitched this piece 20 years ago! It was in Cross Stitch and Country Crafts, and I was delighted by the vibrant colors. It's been sitting in my UFO bag for all these years, and I just decided yesterday to turn it into a sort of cube. I used a rectangular piece of styrofoam from the flower department at JoAnn's, some blue sparkly fabric, a snowflake embellishment, and 4 large beads. The beads were on a strand of about 18, which were in the markdown section at JoAnn's for 50 cents. I used long hat pins to hold the beads in place.
