It's Raining Men....Hallelujah, it's Raining Men...

...well....maybe more appropriately it's SNOWING men!!! I've finished my third member of the Snowman Trio (a Stitchy Kitty pattern)....I finished stitching Milly today.


As mentioned, Milly is part of a trio.....she has friends (or maybe they're family members) Chilly and Willy!


The pictures don't really do them justice (wait....I don't mean that my stitching is that beautiful). I just meant the color of the fabric. It's really light blue - tried to make it look like the sky. Each of them will eventually be holding buttons - I think Chilly has snowflakes to hold, Willy has a cardinal and a bluebird, and Milly has hearts. I'm going to wait until closer to finishing time to attach them. My plan (although I've never done this before) is to try to make a tri-fold out of them. It's going to be a hostess gift for whichever of my siblings hosts our family Christmas get together. We shall see!!!
Now - I've also been working on perforated paper ornaments for my family - I need to make at least six - I may make eight in order to also give them to do of my friends. I've finished two of them - except for some beads because I HATE French knots. Here are the two I've finished....




They're going to get felt on the backs of them, and then wire hangers (I'm channeling Joan Crawford here, except instead of "NO WIRE HANGERS" I am using wire hangers!). When I get them all done, I'll share....

I'm feeling REALLY good - it's the middle of September and I've made quite a bit of progress on Christmas stitching already!!!

Thanks for checking out my blog, and thanks for all of your kind comments!!

I love those snow men Kathy. Especially Chilly. What kind of tri-fold are you planning to make? Is it a standing one? That has my full attention...lol. I'm very curious. I LOVE learning new things.

Kathy,

I am going to host your family get together this year, so come on over to TX LOL What a wonderful gift!!! Those are on my wish list!!! This is the first time I've seen them all stitched, now I know for sure I have to get them. I collect snowmen! I love the perforated paper ornaments as well. I have a leaflet, white and gold perforated paper...I just need to get started soon.
