Getting ready for the cold

It's supposed to get colder this week, so it's the perfect time to work on Ice Drops!


The little bag of Swarovski crystals I found in my stash are being put to good use! I have no idea what size they are.


Some of my Facebook friends have commented that they can't find the glass gems. A little fiddling with the stitch count can help make these fit coins or decorative discs.


This is a bit snug. I think I'll add one more stitch next time. I can always shrink the thread by soaking the finished Ice Drop in hot water for about 15 minutes, as suggested by Marie of West Pine Creations. I tried it, and it worked well!
