Blended needle stitches combine floss with Kreinik Blending Filament to add sparkle to the snowflake border, moon, star stitches, and the snow on the ground.

Mill Hill Glass Beads are used for the shooting stars.

Note: If preferred, you may substitute cross stitches for the beads, using DMC #745 Lt Pale floss (x2)
