Yup, that’s me! I decorate with only Santa’s , gingerbread folk, and angels for Christmas so I put out all my snowmen in January.
By the time Christmas is over, I’m tired of red and green and am ready for some cool blues and purples.
Do you do this, too?
How does your sewing room look when you are in the middle of a project..or two…or three…
I’ve got little piles of fabric and supplies all over my sewing table.
Yogi isn’t bothered by my mess!
Well, I had a few small snowman projects in the works for the last week after Christmas, but had to keep stopping due to various holiday happenings…
but I finished binding them all and sewing on the labels on New Year’s Eve while watching TV with hubby until the wee hours of the new year!
Here’s the mini tabletop snowman.
I had my heart set on using the frosty periwinkle blue with snowflakes for the background and the knit looking print for the hat and muffler…but they were pretty close in value… so I did the edge-stitching in red to try to create a line of demarcation.
So, I tried to lighten the background a bit by quilting tight swirls with white thread… so fun to do.
Here’s a little Sandy Gervais quilt made from a charm pack. I made the same quilt last winter but it lives in my cubby at work now, so I remade it to use above my mantle.
He just has such a winning personality, don’t you think?
I love the addition of pink and aqua in this collection! Plus, I added a carrot nose! He’s gotta breathe!
Finally, I needed a new small greeter quilt for my front door. This happy guy is perfect to stand out on my dark red front door!
The print I used for the border is an oldie but a goodie!!
I love the little cardinal birdie at the bottom and the swirly twirly blue background fabric! I admit, I’m a polka dot freak, too!
So, have you done any sewing in 2011? I’ve had “snow” much fun!!
