Just a few more things I"m finishing up

Just a few more pics of stuff I"m finishing up before I leave and start new projects! Above is my newest snowman from my Hot Chocolate BOM! OK, so I"m actually a few months behind and have more waiting to be done. But at least I finished this one - and this one had a TON of pieces! And here is the quilt so far - isn't it adorable! Notice the star snowman - guess that gave away where I got the pattern from for my camp snowman!

We also need a mitten to hang up at camp for people to drop little pieces of candy and treats in if they wish. Well I didn't have any mittens, and some ladies are bringing oven mitts, well I use pot holders so didn't have that either! So I made a snowman canister! I think he will work!


OK, it is now time to start pulling stash and packing it in my mesh laundry bags I bought so I could take lots and lots of stash!

He's adorable! You're so good!

I like your idea for mesh laundry bags. They'll be very *squishable.* And plus...with high school and college kids...you'll always have enough laundry bags to pack their NOW-CLEAN clothes into when they're ready to head back to college.

snowman canister is very cute. the email I'm trying to send you keeps getting bounced back. thank you so much for the magazines - they were a life saver and a welcome change of pace after a hard day of packing.

I love both your primitive houses (so warm and inviting) and the snowmen quilts (so very very cute). I wish we had snow in Queensland!
