Apple Patch Snowman

In keeping the Christmas Spirit, I decided to give this pattern a try...
 
 
It was a kit so it was easy and mindless....

 
which we all need every now and again....

 
I haven't decided if I should add his coal mouth....



I used Suzie's Magic Binding Technique to finish this little man...
 


 
He is packing...with a couple of candy canes...


Do you think he needs a smile??
 
I even snuck in a little selvage in the hanging sleeve....
 

So he has options to be a runner man or a wall hanging!!

 
I also started working on the Quilt-along with Temecula Quilt Company
 
 
 
 using Stonehenge's Moonrise Starry Night FQ pack.....
 
 
But I think these will go very well with my Crabapple Hills Snowflakes 
 
 
Blues and Silvers....

 
So I am using them in a different direction.....
 

 
These stars are adorable at only 2.5 inches each!!
 
Off to hibernate in my sewing room with temps at -20C!!
