We Have a Snowman

The snowman is all finished.

What comes next?  Santa!  I think we are building him from the feet up.  I'm on piece number 35 now, out of 120.  Actually there are more than 120 but whatever.

I got my last initial in Mistress L.

 It fit.  Yes!  I decided to put in the band that says "this is my work".  Since this isn't charted, I'm using a photo of the project to stitch from.  I hope to finish that this afternoon.  I want to put in a strip of colored blackwork below this.  I'll have to find something the right size.  By the way, Betsy Morgan is participating in the 100 days project.  She is doing a small blackwork motif every day for 100 days and posting it. (  It is fun to check each day and see what she did.  There are a lot of blackwork patterns on the internet so I don't think I'll have any trouble finding one that will do.  I also have some sampler patterns I could use too.
I might be sewing an Elsa costume for Halloween.


  1. Your initials are beautiful. This will be so stunning when you are done.

  2. Wow, that stocking is really going quickly. At least from what I am seeing. It is so adorable. Mistress L is looking great.

  3. And a cute Snowman at that!
    Great progress.
    Is Elsa for Claire?
