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!!!"
