Snowmen, Snowmen everywhere

It's been a great week here so far. I've had some good stitching time, a day out with Nancy and lots of cards in the mail.

I finally finished the "Snowman Trio" and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. They were really cute when I finished stitching them but when I added the buttons it just took them over the top. I wanted to finish them as a "No Sew" cube but think they are just a little big for that so will try to do a flat fold with them and have them ready for the seasonal shelf next month.

"Snowman Trio" by Stitchy Kitty
stitched on 32 ct Belfast Linen by Silkweavers
with DMC and button by Just Another Button Co.
I also got another quick little snowman done for the little tree. Like the one before this it's from the "Snowmen Gathering" chart and is just finished with felt on the back.



New Start.....


"Christmas Biscornu" by Just Nan
I have been trying to help Rae from my ILCS group learn to stitch on Linen/Evenweave fabric. She is such a quick learner and a very talented stitcher. Since she wanted to do a Biscornu and we both had this chart we decided to do it as a SAL so I could help her over any bumps in the road and to learn a couple of speciality stitches. Since taking this picture I do have another tree at the top done and have started down the right side. I'll have another update on this project real soon.


I'll leave you with another picture of Maddie. Doesn't she look like the perfect Christmas gift under the tree? The sweet little girl really has us all fooled.....Manda said as soon as she snapped the picture Maddie turned around and started chewing on the packages. The joys of a teething child, everything goes in the mouth.


Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching

Snowmen are cute, Maddie is even cuter though. She is so precious.

Some kids never outgrow that stage...my 12- and 10-year-old kids still put wierd stuff in their mouths, and I'm pretty sure they aren't teething. Your snowmen are adorable!

snowmen are amazing Rene! Love it.

Also that biscornu by Just Nana is so pretty.
And of course Maddie, too cute. :)

Donna said...

Of course I love your snowmen, but that biscornu is just so lovely. And yes, Ms. Maddie is simply adorable!

You know I love the snowman trio, and keep reminding me! It's nice that you are doing the SAL with her. And of course, Maddy is adorable. Amberlyn is trying to attack the presents too!

Great stitching! :) I love the Just Nan biscornu ~ her charts are really detailed and makes speciality stitches fun to work with. The baby is adorable. Merry Christmas!

Rene,
Snowpeople are really cute, but not quite as cute as Maddy!

Jo said...

Your snowmen are fantastic. Maddie more though, she obviously can't wait to open her presents.

Your snowman trio looks fabulous. How big is it overall? Love the little snowman too. Maddie is so sweet!
