    This is a work in progress that I started this afternoon. I wanted to post a few pictures. I also need some advice. All the pieces are fused down. I plan on doing a blanket stitch around the outsides of the snowmen, but what, if anything, would you suggest I do around the eyes, nose, arms, and mouth. To give a size, the eyes are the size of a pencil eraser.

    Thanks-

    Sheila

    It's adorable. Maybe puffy paint around the eyes? It's washable, and would give them a bit of a sheen.

    oooh you beat me to it... I have been copying the rows and hope to start on them by September... I have so many other things on the go...

    You could use black beads for the eyes. They are snowmen so I reckon you could go wild with the embelishments.

    Hoping to catch up with you. ciao

    Well I cheated. I bought buttons & sewed them in place instead of having to sew around all those little pieces. I am on my 3rd row. When you do those peguins make sure you have them placed right. The sizing is off. Make sure it matches up with the reindeer piece before you fuse them on. I like your background.

    Margie - I think a lot of us happened onto this pattern/BOM that is free. It was so cute I had to try it. If you would like to join in, we would love to have you. You are not behind except for the first row, which can be purchased for $3.00, I believe.

    Sheila

    ETA: Here is the link to the pattern if anyone is interested!
