Getting cold around here, just right for these snowmen

Today was windy and cold. Cold enough for snow. None came down which makes me happy because I am so not ready for the white stuff yet. The only kind of snow I like are these cute snowmen that I finished up last night.
I listed them over on Etsy.
Last night was a crafting night around here. As I finished up my snowmen, Erika my 11 year old was sewing up some ipod holders.
This is her with her niece , my granddaughter, Rachel.


She made a few for classmates at school and I told her if she keeps it up , I might just list some for her over on Etsy.  She loves to create and it is fun helping and watching her.

Puffy snowman

I did up these cute puffy snowmen ,

I  had started them  last year, one of those finish me projects.   :)
It was hard to get a good picture of them. 



They are short and puffy....about 4 1/2 inches tall.  Snowman are fun to make and  I like to decorate with them all winter long.  I have some chenelle fabric and I am going to try a few of these guys with that too!

New things to share

The weather here has been so nice, it has been hard to stay indoors and sew. But I have been and I listed a few things today on Etsy.
I did up a thanksgiving raggedy Ann..

Some primitive wall hangings/ or wreath banners....


And a new Santa Star ornie/bowl filler that I sewed up with this red swirl flannel that I found in my fabric cupboard.




Oh how I love to go into that cupboard and look threw my stash. I bet some of you know exactly what I mean.  :)
I have some more new Annie's sewn up. I did them in Christmas/winter prints. It is  a new patten that I have never done before and I had fun sewing them up.  Hope to list and share those with you tomorrow.
Until then I hope your having a good start to your week.
Colleen
