A Preview...

I thought I'd show you one of my new Christmas/Winter designs that my sweet Friend and talented stitcher Robin Muddiman has finished up for me...
This one (above) is called
"Dirty Snowmen"
(this is before finishing, staining, etc...)
it was stitched onto 18ct. Linen Aida (really cool!)
and measures 90 x 90 stitches
(5" x 5")
I have two others being stitched by Robin...
they are called
"Primitive Wynter"
"Hoe, Hoe, Hoe"

I'll let you see them as soon as they're ready!
I am hoping to release them the first week of October ~
let me know what you think of my Dirty Snowmen...and how should I finish it?
a pillow? framed? a pocket?
send me your suggestions!
back to stitching I go...I have alot more to be finished
before I am ready for this weekend's show!
Happy Stitching, Friends and
Blessed be!

They are just the cutest snowmen! Is this a chart that will be offered? if so, I would make this into a pillow..how cute!

Very sweet! Can't wait to to see the others.


Sycamore Moon Studios said...

This is just charming. I love it!

Terri(TerriBoog) said...

What a cute pattern! I'd make it into a door hanging pillow. Looking forward to seeing your others as well.

Lori said...

yes, this will be a pattern for sale, along with the other two...thanks for your suggestions!!


catgerenser said...

I love it! Can't wait to see the others. Would there be any way to finish into something resembling a snowball?

LadyV said...

Looks like I'll have to get this one when it's available, what a wonderful design...I think I'll stitch mine into a biscornu...5x5--A substantial biscornu :-)


basketsnprims said...

I love it ~ can't wait to see the other 2 & for the patterns. I think a small pillow would be great, maybe even a hanging one.

Colleen said...

I love the biscornu idea, maybe on 40 count over 1, that will help with the size. Maybe add a needle case and scissor fob, make it a whole winter snowy accessory set.

Lori said...

Ooooh Colleen ! NOW you're talking!!!


Tracey said...

cute! I ♥ snowmen. I think it would make a cute pillow!

Angie said...

oh i love it! can't wait for the pattern and to see the other designs! i love winter and christmas patterns!

Nancy said...

I love Dirty Snowmen, and I can't wait to see your other patterns. If this was mine I would either frame it or make it into a pillow with a burlap backing and maybe even a little bit of a burlap ruffle.

The Burlap Owl said...

Love your new design. I can't wait to see the rest!!

Good luck on your upcoming show...

Take Care,
