Winter .... Had Enough?

With the bitterly cold temperatures that most of the country experienced this week... I think most of us are saying... Enough!  While it has warmed up the past couple of days, the cold weather earlier this week put me in the mood to make something 'wintery'.
This is a pillow I made several years ago that I bring out after all the Christmas decorations are put away and only my snowman (snowperson? do we have to be politically correct here??) collection remains.
sorry for the bad photo
So Wednesday after dinner I saw this cute little candle mat in the winter issue of Primitive Quilts and given the below freezing temps, I decide to put this together.  Off to my wool collection and in about an hour, I was ready to start my buttonhole applique.
Today, I will work on finishing snowman faces and embroider the snowflakes.  So cute!!  I am linking up at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.
Lucy seems to be taking it slow today too on the back of the couch.  Wonder if she's move all day.  She will if there are treats to be had!!

Happy Stitching!

  1. I love snowman too! No pc police here! I think their cuteness makes the cold blustery winter days we have been having more bearable. Your button hole stitches look wonderful on your candlemat!

  9. I found the Winter Primitive Quilts magazine today. I really don't need to start another project, but that candy cane bouquet is really calling me.
