Crazy January Challenge- Day 11

Project #11: A Frosty Feast- Crossed Wing Collection

This was chosen for 2 reasons. First, my Mom loves building snowmen. It's the funniest thing...she just takes the dog out to run and builds a snowman, by herself, just because she thinks it's fun. Their neighbours get a kick out of it, and she's even gone so far as to buy neon food colouring and is planning to spray paint her next one. Second, Holly loves stitching snowmen and always suggests that I do the same. She found this pattern and insisted I buy it....it's pretty cute!

I'm still not so sure about stitching on linen. I've got about half linen and half aida happening in this challenge...it's just so delicate, I'm scared I'm going to break it or something haha!

For now, I'll leave you with a pic of my Mom's latest snowman....


  1. Wonderful project. You will love the linen and awesome snowman

  2. Her snowmen are great! Have you seen this pattern (the second one down)?

  3. oh my!!!! The pattern is GORGEOUS!!!!!! I love snowmen too!!!!! In fact, I got a snowman pattern in the mail today & you don't know how bad I want to stitch it, instead of my challenge pieces!!!!!!!
    Your mom's snowman is adorable!!! Can't wait to see the neon one she does!!!

  4. This snowman pattern is adorable - can't wait to see it as you make progress. I'm telling you, keep up with the linen - you will love it!

    Your mom's snowman is cute - I don't make snowmen but love to do snow angels!!
