A Month of Snowmen


Was going to start a new project on January 1, but after looking outside at the cold, foggy weather, I decided to focus on existing snowman projects instead during January. I started the Winter Quilt out of Red Wagon's Snowbound book a few years ago and finished one lone snowman. The background fabric is a really old Marcus Brothers print from the 1990s that I just love. Tried the back basting applique technique on the snowman, but I really prefer needleturn so will try that on the next block. Also cross stitching some little snowman ornaments from a Prairie Schooler book for an exchange due by February 1. A pot of chicken noodle soup is bubbling away on the stove for dinner tonight, so we are looking forward to it to warm up in this cold weather.
Happy New Year's Day to all!

Dixie,
I am happy to see you started a blog. Love your new projects. I have the snowbound book too and projects I never got to make. Hopefully this year I will get the chance to make something from each book.

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind words. It is always a pleasure to fin new blogs and bloggers. Your snowmen look wonderful. And maybe you have snow to go with them too? Here it is still just cold and no snow.

I did the snowman quilt a few years ago. I put it on display in December & through the winter months.
