Silver Bells (Russian Maidens Series)

Pat Miller is starting to blog-stitch Silver Bells from the new Leigh Designs' Russian maidens series!  "Silver Bells" is my personal favorite of the eight Winter Maidens, so I can't wait to see what Pat does with her.  A stitch guide will be available from Leigh Designs (if you are a shop) or from Pat directly (if you are a stitcher) once Pat finishes.

Here are the other seven Winter Maidens.  Stay tuned.  I will be stitching Woodland Belle and Sandy Arthur will be doing Pretty Poinsettia.  My Snow Maiden stitch guide is already available from Leigh Designs or myself.
