A finish & a tiny giveaway!

Hello dear blogging friends!  It's been a while since I've been able to read your blogs or post on my own!  But I am trying to catch up and see what you've been doing!

I actually have a finish I want to show.  It's really small, but oh so cute!  While I was stitching this, I thought it looked rather small!  When I was about half finished, I looked at the chart again, and saw that I was using 18 count fabric, as recommended, but the chart said "over two"!!!!  Oh well, it's really cute as a "MINI" since mine is over one!!!

I had this darling snowman fabric in my stash, so I will use it for finishing.  I think my dear friend Janie gave me this fabric!!  I changed the floss colors to coordinate with the fabric.  You can also see that the button wheels aren't sewn on yet, either!  But they will be!


This is the cute little chart--Snowman "Zippie" by Bent Creek.  I received this chart from Chris at Tot Hill Farm Stitches.  She was giving it away, and now I want to pass it to someone else.  So, if you are interested in stitching this cute little chart, please leave a comment and I'll draw a name on Wednesday of this week.


I've been busy with handling my mother's affairs, but it's all falling into place and I hope things will be a little easier/quieter soon.  It's been very tiring and very busy, but starting to slow down now.

Thank you for stopping by, and please come back soon!  Don't forget to leave a comment if you'd like to have the Snowman Chart!

How cute is that and the backing fabric is perfect! Please don't include me in the draw, I have soooo much to stitch, I wouldn't want to get sidetracked! LOL

I'm glad your life has slowed down a bit. :-)

He would make a wonderful Christmas ornament(stitched over 1) and a good stand-up (over 2) for the winter. Please enter me in the drawing. Thank you.
