Living in East Texas my whole life has not given me much experience with snow. We are lucky if we get one snow fall each winter, and even then it usually only lasts for a day or two. Nevertheless, I have always loved how beautiful the familiar countryside looks when transformed into a winter wonderland by a rare snowfall. As I designed the “Snow Queen” I was hoping to create a doily that would celebrate this magical transformation. The ninth of my “Lovely Ladies Doilies” series features a serene ice princess admiring an individual snowflake in the midst of a swirling blizzard.
