The Inspiration behind the pattern:
Two little snowflakes dancing all around. One big snowflake flitting her way lightly down.

"Have all the fun you can you two. Soon you'll be on the cold, cold ground - smooshed and stomped and melted down."

They giggled and laughed as they swirled around her. "So true. So true. But even then we'll have fun too."

They dreamed aloud of the fun yet to be; of snowball fights and snowmen armies; of sledding races and snow angels; of the gift they become to those young of heart far, far down.

The one big snowflake thought and thought. They're right I know. Life is short especially for those of our delicate kind.

With a twinkle and a sparkle, she decided right then. She joined in the dance, a spectacular show of light and wonder.

The three snowflakes danced and giggled, flying higher in the up drafts, lower in the down drafts, but always swirling and enjoying the life they had.

Time seemed unending in their world of play, but soon enough their landing came.

"Let's give these beings a gift - they who will have more fun with us." The big snowflake called out.

"Let's do! Let's do!" The little ones returned.

And there, on the ground, where their brethren had already landed and children frolicked, the three snowflakes landed on points...standing proudly and elegantly upright.

One by one, the children stopped, dropping down more closely to the fun little trio.

They sparkled and shone with almost an inner light and soon that light traveled to the children's' wonder-filled eyes.

The fun erupted once more as the three snowflakes were scooped up and tossed up, to dance and swirl and giggle some more.

May this snowflake trio counted cross stitch pattern remind you to enjoy the life you have and to always dance and giggle.

If you've gotten this far...I hope this has inspired you!

Thank you for looking and reading!

Have a great stitchy day!

I love this design for a pillow. I also wanted rustic but soft. The seller has been the best to communicate with. I asked her so many questions, but yet she was always happy, gracious and helpful! Started this. Not an easy pattern, but the detail will be so worth it.

Dorothy, I was getting ready for bed and decided to check my emails.....and there you were with the finished product. You made me cry.........I am 73 yrs old and have been cross stitching for over 40 years and never, I mean never have I ever seen a pattern so clearly printed, clearly stated, soooooo professionally done, so beautifully explained as what you just provided............I have no words..............thank you is not good enough. What you went through to produce this for me, I don't have the words to express my gratitude. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. The finished product is going to a well deserved police officer at Christmas time. As I wipe the tears, I smile because I met someone like you. You are awesome! Thank you for being YOU!
