Frosty Scissor Companion Cross Stitch

This cute project was my day 9 start from the Cross Stitch Crazy 2016 challenge.  Frosty Scissor Companion came as a kit from Ewe and Eye and Friends.  The kit included 32 count olive linen, pink scissors with sheath, floss and chart.  The design size is 40 by 40.  As with all EEF kits, it was designed to stitch one over two but I stitched two over two and only ran out of one color.

As much as I tend to avoid charts with backstitching, I am always pleased with the resulting detail that the backstitch creates.  There is very little bs in this piece but it really does make it pop.
