Sorry for my absence. I’ve actually written this post early last week, and just as I was about to post it, my internet was down. It turned out that there was an outage in our area so I did not have internet or cable for two days!!!! Now, I might survive without one or the other, but without both, it was a total nightmare!!! I have no idea when the service came back cause we were away for the weekend. Thankfully everything works now and I’m back online!!!!! This has happened twice in the past month. I’m seriously thinking about switching to another service provider!!!!
Now back to stitching, may I introduce to you – Mr. Frosty Flakes~~ He sure is adorable!!! I couldn’t get my hands off him!!
Pattern: Little House Needleworks "Frosty Flakes"
Thread: DMC & Crescent Colors cotton floss
Fabric: 35ct WDW Linen Straw
Stitch Size: 3” x 3.25”
Completion Date: 07-25-2011
Originally the bird was in white, but I thought it looked kind of lost against all the white on Frosty. I remembered seeing someone changing it into red and loved it, so I did the same here. I think I just turned a Dove into a Cardinal!!
I also used a button for the star~~ Don’t you think Frosty is gazing right at it?
Last but not least, I would like to thank all of you for your lovely comments about my apron finish~~ I do love making gifts for friends!! Who knows what I will dip my hands into next time?!
