Snow Queen - Clue 3

This clue finishes up my use of the Crystal AB beads.  I used Pink Pearlized Crystal AB beads on the "arms" of the snow flake and Purple Lined Amethyst AB beads for the beads that are called for in the pattern.  I wore this shawl to work this past Tuesday, the silk is very warm and the cape version hangs nicely.  The bulk of the beads are on the shoulders in the star burst section so you really don't notice the weight.

Our weather is certainly appropriate for a Snow Queen.  We had about 6 inches of snow yesterday, including about a half inch of sleet.  We stayed home from work yesterday, and we'll have to dig out today.  Depending on when our road gets plowed we may or may not make it into work today.
