Merry Design Wall


Today begins a whole year before my next birthday and the beginning of the Christmas season: how fun.

Doesn’t it seem right that my design wall today has 11 snowmen? All of these are appliqued down and ready for the hand embroidery which I will try to get done when we are visiting in MD at Christmas. Anyway there is only one more snowman in this years Bunny Hill Designs BOM. And here is my problem, I need 13 snowman blocks for this layout. What to do, what to do?






Anyway, I finished these last two snowmen blocks this week so I am ready for #12 and will have to decide what to do about #13 later.






















I have my 12 Days of Christmas ready to quilt and it will be on the HQ before today is over.








Yesterday was my birthday. After a week of reviewing the DVDs, DH took me to see Harry Potter (big fan), out to eat.

I only thought to take a picture (taken with my new iPhone) after I had almost finished.




And after we got home I opened my gift from DS#3 and his wife. Thanks my children.


It was a great day and now it is off to another great year.

can't believe the snowman quilt is almost done-I still have to applique the 11th block but think I'll hold off now until get the last one and do them both together.

Happy belated birthday Gary! When I first opened you site, I had to go "ohh" as I'm a snowman collector. I've had to force myself not to make any "new" projects but this reminds me that I have my very first snowman machine embroidery blocks from 2001 that need to be put together. Your blocks are awesome and I like the frosty background fabric.

There's something about new beginnings . . . like opening that new box of crayons on the first day of school . . . here's to a wonderful year for you!

Holly said...

Happy Birthday! I agree with Judy too; take parts of the other snowmen blocks and make your own block.

Happy Belated Birthday! Love your snowmen. I did that set, too but in redwork. Still waiting for the last one!

You could repeat one of the blocks only do it in reverse.
