Hexie 22 - a Frosty Winter block

I enjoyed working on this hexie although I struggled when choosing a colour for the edging. turquoise and aqua were awful, mustard and cream killed it, red was just plain revolting so in the end I settled for this pink which matches the colour of the little girl's cheeks. I bought a bag of hundreds, maybe thousands of those snowflake sequins from China and never knew how to use them until now - they really went well with the frosty, icy theme of this block as they catch the light beautifully.  In the end, I am happy with the block, pink binding and all.
