Happened upon this video, and thought I'd share - it's a great way to make fluffy snow, and I don't see any reason why you couldn't use this in a cross stitch/counted thread project, in addition to needlepoint (as long as you are stitching in a hoop or something similar).
Sorry for missing yesterday, this flu/cold/whatever had me totally down for the count. I think I slept maybe 20 hours yesterday. I usually do not "allow" myself to be sick, since there's no one to pick up the slack when I can't work, but yesterday it just wasn't optional. After a week of this crap, I am hoping I'm on the upswing - today I feel a bit better, and can actually focus, which is a plus.
Until tomorrow, happy stitching!
