Another Snowman melts off the needle!!!

Hot off the needle. - SanMan Designs - Frosty.
Stitched on hand-dyed pink/peach aida
Stitched with DMC and Needle Necessities.
I made the buttons yesterday out of Fimo.
I now have a little jar of carrot noses - went for the 3D look rather than the flat look.  I might have to re-do the eyes on the very left snowman - we'll see how it settles when I make this into......into.......well, probably a cushion or a tote.
(My pile of finishes waiting to be made into a cushion/tote/wallhanging is growing!!!)

Now to move onto Christmas - specifically my Christmas Tablecloth and one or 70 ornaments..... 

I just checked - I thinkthis is my 10th snowman finish for 2010 !!!!  Now to find them all

See you found the fimo then ; ))
2 more will give you an even dozen and 1 a month(ish) completion rate.
Still shearing sheep next year? Interested parties want to know!

That's a lovely finish Bron. I've had my sister and my BIL staying over the last 3 weeks, so no stitching has been done. And I think I'm loosing the will to live !!!!
I've been doing some blog traveling and have decided that small cross stitch projects are more the way to go, rather than focus entirely on one large project. So while the Dollar is so good some serious stash has been ordered from America.
