A nice red velvet Christmas bow will go on this corner in the middle of the branches to finish it off.

Snowdrifts and Christmas (part 2)
I had a dilemma on what to do with the space between the snowdrifts. For a while I thought I'd fill in the space with more white and add Christmasy things above and below. But then I thought it might be kind of boring to look at a white square. Maybe I'll do a monochromatic one day, but I didn't feel this was the one. Then I thought if I filled in between the drifts with Christmas-sy things then they wouldn't look like drifts anymore. Well, I decided on the latter. I just stopped thinking about it and started stitching. I decided to stop being overly critical and just add Christmas colors that made me happy. I added candy cane twists, little gold and red flowers, evergreen branch fringe with red holly berries and Christmas tree balls. One thing I have decided is that in the bottom right corner in the middle of the fringe and balls I am going to add a nice red velvet bow to finish it off. As of this moment I'm a little stuck on what to do next, so we'll just have to see what happens and wait for what comes next. I'll put it down, look at it as I walk by...something will strike me. Here's a pic of the progress:
