Snow storm!!!!

Not what you're thinking I'm sure ...... don't forget, I come from sunny Queensland, Australia!!! It's a rarity to get snow here and we definitely don't get any in Brisbane!! Nope, this is something completely different .... perhaps I should have called this post "SnowMAN storm" he he he.
I went to visit my friend Gwen (no blog) yesterday and I was blown away by all of her fabulous snowmen!!! I think I see a bit of an obsession there LOL, everywhere I turned there was another gorgeous snowman - and most of these she made herself!!! Very clever friend I have :o). Here's a few of them for you to see ... Mr and Mrs Frosty ........
The kids .....Snowman swag ...Snowball fight...... (my favourite - aren't they cute??!!?!)Frosty hanging on the back of the chair ....Another swag ... this time vertical ;o) ...

Snowman stitchery ....And last but not least this smily chap :o)!!You can imagine how festive Gwen's house looked ........ AND the Christmas tree was covered in snowmen too!!!!

On another subject, I was surprised by how many emails/comments I received about my Mum's little red bag on the last post. I've decided I might do a tutorial on it ... what do you think??

Take care,

Hugs,

Joy :o)

I love the snowman. Tutorials are good. When I saw your post about snow storm I thought that a little strange lol. We are having the start of a snow storm right now and it will last until Sunday night.

Hi Joy, The snowmen are fantastic, does she make up the patterns herself? I have never seen so many different ways to sew snowmen, the swag is great. The little red bag would be handy as a tutorial thanks.

Hi Joy,

The snowstorm dumped a couple more inches lol and will get 5 more tomorrow. I was wondering where your friend found the flake stitchery. I have looked and I can't find it anywhere.
