Snowflake Sampler :: L'Orange + Lacy Star

I got a little late start on my two block assignments for the Snowflake Sampler this month. Both were 11" blocks, and the first, L'Orange, stitched up pretty quick. Throughout this block of the month, we've mostly been stitching the base stitches in white perle cotton, and then weaving in variegated Aurifloss, but both of this month's blocks switched things up. For L'Orange, both the star stitches and weaving were done with the Aurifloss, and just the tiny tack stitches were in white perle cotton. Really makes for a rich colorful block, doesn't it?

Then for the Lacy Star block, the "snowflake stitches" were done in colored Aurifloss, with the weaving done in white perle. I find the Aurifloss, where I use all six strands at once, to be slightly thicker then the perle size 8, so that felt a little different, but I do like the result.

In case you missed my previous blocks, here they are!

X and O Star   +   Tiny Snowflakes   +   Lacy Flowers

Large Snowflake   +   Woven Star   +   Pearvocado

Classic Star   +   Simple Woven Flower

Favorite Coffee Mug   +   Small Classic Star


  1. Beautiful stitches and good progress!

  2. I was going to ask how working with Aurifloss felt in relation to the perle cotton. I do like the variation these blocks will add to the grouping!

  3. Such vibrant oranges and blues in both beautiful projects! Love them!
