Five Frosties Playing in the Snow

 It snowed all day Friday, the last day of 2021.  It was our first real and measurable snow for this winter and the first since way last March, so our very dry Colorado really needed it.  I knew I needed to photograph my Frosty embroideries out in the snow!



I'm not sure how tall that snow on the fence is, but I did measure 7 inches in the front yard.

Mike asked me if it was really worth it to tromp through all that snow just to get a picture.  Of course I said it was!



Frosty #6 is still under construction.



And 7, 8, and 9 are printed and ready to trace.  I'll need to prep one this afternoon so that I don't run out of slow stitching on this first Sunday of 2022!  These designs can be found at PinkernPunkin Quilting; every Thursday Melisa puts out a new Frosty.  They're a lot of fun!


Happy New Year to all my stitching friends!

Happy New Year to you, as well. Love your Frosties! But not sure I'd wade through 7" of snow just for a photograph. We're expecting up to 3" tonight. Glad to know you weren't affected by the fires. So sad.

Dear Diann, I was praying that the fires were far from you. We are so glad you got some snow as we knew Colorado needed some precipitation! Your Frostie Snowmen look great! Sending you best wishes for better New Year! Hugs!

Linda said...

Love your Frosties, and I'm sure they appreciated being out in the snow! That is a LOT of snow; glad your area got some much-needed precipitation.

You have more snow than we do! The frosty’s look great out there in the snow. What a fun embroidery project!

PaintedThread said...

Look at all that snow! Yes - getting the right photo is so worth it! :-)

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

so glad you got snow! and I hope the fire area to the south of you did too. Snow is pretty and I don't mind it for a couple days but I guess I prefer to not have much of it. Your stitchery are cute!

I am working on the skier right now also.

I love your Frosty blocks! I don't think I would have trudged through the snow for the photo, but they certainly look great on the fence surrounded by all that snow. We are supposed to get a couple of inches of snow tomorrow morning. Just in time for the first day back to school.

Angela said...

So cute! Good for you to brave the snow to get a good shot!

LA Paylor said...

finally some snow, right? And you got a mighty amount of it. We can be grateful to have escaped the fire this time right Diann? Your snowmen are adorable pictured like that

Sarah said...

Great photo of your Frosties hanging in the garden. Of course it was worth going out in the snow! Happy new year!

Love your snowmen in the garden, and the picture of where you tromped out there! We have been in the 30's the past couple of days. We have rarely gotten snow, but my windshield has ice on it, and my grass is icy. Hope you have a great week!

Susie H said...

7" of snow sounds wonderful to me! Sadly, we haven't had any snow here yet, just that frigid cold recently. I'm collecting the Frosties too and look forward to starting them. Good job! Hope you had on some mighty tall boots to tromp through that snow!

Melisa- pinkernpunkinquilting said...

Oh, Diann, your Frosties are just as cute as can be and in their right environment . Lol. It looks like a winter wonderland in your yard. I hope you enjoy the snow and your Slow Stitching Sunday and thank you so much for joining me stitching good ole' Frosty. You brightened my day.

Ivani said...

You got a perfect shot for all those cute snowmen! And for the first day of snow you've got a lot, 7" ... wow!!
Happy New Year Diann!!

Miaismine said...

It is a beautiful shot! Thank you for sharing your Frosties! I'm downloading them every week! Thank you so much and Happy New Year!

Pat said...

cute, cute, cute! all your snowmen and in the snow, too!

Jenny said...

Your Frosies in the snow look so cute. We are basking in hot sunshine here.

The Joyful Quilter said...

Frosty in the snow? How apropos, Diann!!

piecefulwendy said...

Of course it was necessary to tromp through that snow for the Frosty pic - silly question - haha! I'm so glad the snow finally arrived for you. My SIL was within 5 miles from the Boulder fires, so we were very nervous about her situation for a bit. Such devastation, and so very sad.

MissPat said...

I love your parade of Frosty's. I should go print one of those patterns to use for the January Table Scraps project, although at the rate I stitch, it might be next January before I finish it. So sad that the snowfall didn't come one day earlier for the fire victims. One again, the lesson to the rest of us is "Carpe Diem".

Mike! What a silly question!
