Made some changes to the original design and making progress. The silver scarf presented two problems---one the design was to much on this mini quilt, took the eye away from the Polar Bear and two the fabric would unravel as I was stitching, it didn't offer the look I was going for. This is why auditioning fabric is important when making a little quilt. So, in my basket of lace and tatting I found some vintage tatting the made perfect snowflakes. I have continued to use the metallic thread for both the snowflakes and the Polar Bear (he has a little bling). I've also been thinking about a few beads here and there (another audition--we'll see???) Happy Quilting!
