This is a cross-stitch design of a snow family having a snowball battle - the males against the females. The boy is ‘ducking’ for cover behind a snow fort wall. His hat is lying where it landed when it was knocked off of him. The girl is cheering because a snowball she threw is about to hit her father’s hat. The dog is running back and forth between the two teams. Glass beads are used for coal nuggets, the noses are carrot colored, and they all have various wearing apparel (hats and scarves and even a red hankie tied around the dog’s neck).
