Let it Snow*man.

I like snowmen.  I rarely stitch them but I like to decorate with them.  I think the vast stretches of white don't lend themselves to stitching, however, I am working on Lizzie Kate's 6 Fat Men from last winter....

The snow stitches dont show very well and take a lot of time.  It's still cute. 

I made this wall hanging a couple years ago.  Recently, I visited a quilt store with the same pattern made up in a different charm pack...mine was from a kit and mirrored the pattern's fabrics...but the look was totally different made with different charm packs.  I'd love to make another but can't find the pattern!  Naturally.  I could probably use the finished product to guide me along if I was so inclined. 

 I favor snowmen in either groups of represent my family...

 or in groups of my own kids. 

I have some singles, too.  This guy from Brazil...even when I travel I like to bring home snowmen. 

I bought this next one on the hottest day of the year at a candle shop in an amusement park.  My husband're buying a candle?!  Think it will still be a candle when we get home? 

My newest snowman is a Jim Shore design.  I love the candy cane and matching quilt pattern on his body. 
If the snowman isn't too Christmassy he can stay out all winter. 

I've enjoyed seeing every one's posts of their decorated houses.  Mine is coming along.  I'm slow this year.

Happy Stitching. 


  1. Really enjoyed your snowman tour today :) I like them, too, and even have an all-snowmen tree in my kitchen... Really love the candle--glad it survived that hot summer's day.

    Nice progress on your Fat Men--looks like you're almost finished!

    Glad I'm not the only "slow" one this year--I don't think I've ever been this far behind... Oh well, no one will ever know (but me) if the house is only half-decorated :)

  2. Great snowmen! Working on the L*K's myself. Using a brown fabric - so mine are showing for now. We'll see how that goes. The candle snowman is wonderful - glad he didn't melt.

  3. Great snowman goodies! I leave mine out through the winter!
