Fun with the Frosties

There's been no measurable snow in Colorado for something like 226 days (almost a record), but I don't need snow to make a snowman!  First there's this guy, Vicki's Welcome Frosty pattern, who now has a face.

The nose is made of orange felt, appliqued down with the button-hole stitch.  
I back stitched his mouth with black perle cotton no. 8.
Now it's time to find a backing and figure out how to quilt this guy!

Then there are these guys - the first three in the Frosty McChill series that Melisa at PinkernPunkin Quilting has been offering on her blog every Thursday.  These are so simple and fun to stitch!


I love that each one has a different hat.  
And Frosty's little bird friend - so cute!


Right now I'm working on block 4 - "Just A Sweeping" and this will be my slow Sunday stitching today.

I love the embroidered snowmen, they have such personality! And your Welcome Frosty will brighten up the dark winter days. Nice job on the hand quilting, you are tempting me to take it up again.

love your snowmen! here we have been low on rain and in the beginning of a drought if we do not get rain soon - the weathermen this week are saying for the next 7 days we have rain chances but are mixed on how much we get - I hope for at least an inch as we need it and if we don't I will actually have to water some newer plants so they don't die over winter.

If you sew enough snowmen, maybe it'll snow! Keep on stitching! *wink*

Welcome Frosty, is just as cute as can be. He is such a cheery fellow. All the other snowmen are sweet, too. Have fun stitching "Just a Sweeping". Perhaps your little world will be covered in white, soon.
