I found some patterns on Pinterest -- a great place if you want to loose yourself for many hours -- you can sign up -- it's free!
I decided to do whatever caught my eye. This snowman was just too darn cute, so I had him grow a lot on my computer (Word programme) and then traced and spent a few nights doing the embroidery.
I found the snowman here
just scroll down the page a bit
I love this one. Tongue sticking out catching a snowflake. I bet he loves cold weather too. I have no idea where I found this one. I've searched but to no avail. I'll keep looking. I should write things down.......Found it! Found it! https://claudiacreaciones.wordpress.com/moldes-navidenos/navidad-102-2/
A pocket on the back will hold the gift card and I used a small piece of twill tape to write the year on. I used "Fray-Check" on the cut ends and sewed it in place with a snowflake button.
Yesterday, you saw the last one I made. I have to admit I'm feeling pretty darn good about getting these all done. Life will be so much easier come this fall.
I have one pillow form, so need to purchase a few more. I'll buy one a month with my 40% off coupon.
Okay, your turn to make one gift before the month is over.......just one.
Now it's "Red's" turn to shine in the spotlight.
This is a red squirrel....tiny, nimble, quick. He can "fly" amongst the trees here in the front yard.
You can see him in the ash tree, then the birch over to the blue spruce, down and over to the Austrian pines. Misty's head is going a mile a minute when this guy visits.
Believe me when I say this guy is the boss of the yard. He may be small, but he sends the black and grey squirrels scurrying when he's around.
