A finish!!!!


I finished snowman #4 today!!! At 10 this morning. I am so happy to have one more down, two more to go. Let me tell you, all that background blue? Ugh! Although easy enough to do, was boring me to tears! But! I was able to push through it and get it finished!!!





And now an update on #5:

Not much progress here, but a little.And now that I finished #4, I get to start #6!!! The last one in the series! Now to figure out what I want to do with them...do I get some cute wintery fabrics and make them into a quilt, or try to make them into ornaments...but I think they may be too big for tree ornies...in the book the patterns are in, they have them all strung together, kinda like a garland, and it's hanging over a fireplace, I think...Or kinda like they are mittens and stockings hung over the fire to dry...that would be cute...hmmm...this is usually the hardest part for me...finishing. I can stitch until my face turns blue, pushing towards that finishing goal, and then I heave a great sigh of relief as my needle finishes that last stitch...then dread! Oh no! NOW WHAT?! I have to figure out WHAT to do with this beautiful piece of stitching. There is someone out here in blog land who scrapbooks her stitching, I think that is a great idea, actually! Maybe that is what I should do!!! Although I like the idea of turning these blocks into a quilt. Hmmm...I think I am gonna have to use some time to ponder this one...any ideas out there? I'm open to suggestions!!!

Oh yes, and in my next post I have an assignment/vote for you all, as I have big plans to start CDC by Ink Circles...I haven't even bought the pattern yet, but I have some floss colors picked out and would like some thoughts on that, but we'll save that for my next post!

Happy Stitching! And Happy New Year if I don't get back here before then! LOL. may 2009 be a frogless year for us all! "Pack your bags, Froggies! You aren't wanted here in stitching blogger land!!!"

He is adorable! I'm partial to the idea of stringing them all together to hang over the fireplace, etc. That sounds so cute! Good luck with your choices.

I know how to make them into ornaments that won't be to big or heavy for the tree if you want to go that route. Gopod job on the snowmen, they look great.

I love the idea of them strung together. If you really hate the idea of making them up why not get someone to make them up for you, I am not sure how costly that would be but certainly worth an enquiry.
