Motorcycle Wanderings, General Travel, and a Weird Mix of Other Stuff

The Snowman Factory

Did I tell you December was busy? I decided to get crafty this year and make a few snowmen.

Fancy Stitchery

This cutie was first. It took far longer than you might imagine. I’m a slow rookie.

I think she turned out pretty good, considering that was my first stitchery project.

She will be a pillow one day…

Canvas Snowmen

I started these because I wanted to give each of the kids a hand-made ornament. But I ended up with quite a few of them. They were really easy to make, although decorating them took some time. The buttons all came from Aunt Pearl’s button stash, which she gave to me last year.

I really love how the bunting turned out.




Mug Rug

I took another class as Kelly Ann’s Quilting and learned even more new sewing skills, which allowed me to make this cute little mug rug.

As much as I loved the mug rug, I decided she should go live with Amy.

And that’s it for the snowman explosion of 2013. LOL.

    I’ve been admiring these on Facebook. You are so crafty. I like the snowmen, best part of the holidays to me.

    I love my mug rug! And I can’t wait to see the rest of new snowmen 🙂

    Thanks, Brandy. I think the reason I like snowmen so much is that they always look happy. 🙂

    Uh, oh, Amy. I wasn’t on planning on making you more snowmen. Just a bunting to hang the family’s snowmen on. 🙂

    But I just thought of a different sort of snowman bunting I can make. Now if I can find the time…

    The snowmen appear to be breeding when your back is turned. Wow, you sure made a lot of them! The mug rug is really cool … but your sewing machine stopped me in my tracks … very nice!!
