I’m happy that I had time to finish. They had the carrot outlined in the pattern but I did half of it and decided that it looked better without.  Since we don’t have our tree up just yet, he’s hanging on our refrigerator for the time being.



Here is the one from last year.


They are both stitched on 18 count fabric.

Thanks for coming my way.




Almost Done

This week I’ve been working on this Stoney Creek snowman from Snow Happens.  He is one of four.  I made one last year as a tree ornament and again this year.

Thanks for stopping by.

Here is such a pretty little pillow pinkeep that you could put together quickly. It comes from xLeki that she shared in 2012. She shares it via a link that reads “a sample was” uploaded…


If you’d like to sew it too, go see her PDF.

Something to do while you recover or celebrate the US election outcome.
