No snow, only a wet drizzle at times.
Mrs. Snowman is up.
She is an institution. Made in 1980 when I first learned to quilt. This was the applique part of the class. We learned how to enlarge a pattern, drawing or whatever, using a grid. This lady was on the cover of Herschner's catalogue. I used what I had on hand. The background is a fuzzy piece of stretchy fabric similar to fleece, Mrs. Snowman is made of white flannel (needleturn applique), her cheeks are polycotton broadcloth, the hat trim is fake fur, the scarf is a remnant piece left over from a jacket I made and her polka dots are remnants from a dress my mom made for herself. The snowflakes and all the black is embroidery. Her little pocket is 3-D and every year she has a mini candy cane in it. As you can see, it's not quilted and the background is probably not even squared up but she gets hung up every year. I think I have only had to wash it once when the flannel started to look a tad yellow.
Just two of my favourite holiday creatures. The moose actually never gets put away.
Me and my little lumberjack.
I do hope you are not stressing with trying to get everything done.
Our house is not finished being decorated.
I'm off to make more cookies now, perhaps get some sewing done and a bit more decorating finished too. No stress. All in good time.
