It's cold and it's cute

Maybe because it has been so cold out or maybe because this new BOM is so cute, I have decided to play along.

My seven snowmen. This is a new block of the month (BOM) from Quilt Doodle Doodles. The fabric I used was one that I only had about half a metre of and quite a bit of it got used up. There are little moons in the fabric. I didn't want all the snowmen to look the same so I used different ways of making the snowball blocks, different white fabrics, different orange fabrics for the noses and different buttons for the eyes.


 Perhaps I was influenced by this book. I read it to my grandson Luc who is visiting with his mom and little brother, Patric.

These are the threads that I have chosen to begin another BOM. It's Quilty Stitches Sampler Along hosted by Little Miss Shabby.

I'm linking up with The Needle and Thread Network and then I will be doing more sewing. 
Stay warm (or cool down under) and happy sewing.

Such cute little snowmen tumbling about happily in the snow. At least they're a whole lot happier than I am about the snow!!

cute is the right word for these little men. Are you going to add more, and make a quilt, a runner, or on the front of a bag? I can see this with snow gear packed inside. Keep warm, cheers from Jean

The snowman row is cheerful! We have not had any snowball weather yet, just a little of cold dry snow. Beautiful colours for your cross stitch project.

Oh, those snowmen are so cute, they jumped straight to the top of my to-do list. And I agree with your no-two-alike philosophy.

Oh dear, Dolores, what am I going to do with this stitch along? So pretty. And I love stitching in the evening. I think I might have to start.
I have also joined this stitch along, adding my own interpretations to it:
