    Snowmen

    I machine embroidered the Redwork snowmen on my Janome. The gray orange slices are leftovers, from a large project where gray was requested. Initially, I was not happy with gray, as I love lots of color. The gray has grown on me, I finally like it. I did echo stitching on the orange slices and stippling in the snowman blocks. I found the border fabric, with grey, a pop of red and snowmen, a perfect match for the blocks. The fabric was 50% off, plus I got a Senior discount of 25% off entire purchase, makes it that much sweeter. Measures 36 inches square.

    I think you did this one extremely well. Some subjects don't want the bright colors some of us prefer.

    You did a very nice job. Gray has become so popular over the last few years. Younger people really seem to prefer it. It's taken me a long time to learn to like it too.

    Cute! Cute! CUTE! It's a very clever combination of blocks and fabrics. Love the red work and border fabric especially.

    great design idea!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    So nice and I agree with you on gray color. Never cared for it but now like it. I'm making Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt and gray is a constant color in it.

    Very pretty! Myself I love the gray. It is quite popular again. I think I like it so much is because when I was in 9th grade I had a skirt that was gray & pink plaid like & I had a pink mohair sweater & a gray mohair sweater I wore with it. So made 2 outfits out of it. I just loved wearing it. lol It was very popular back then. (About 48 years ago) Funny now looking back. I also love your redwork embroidery. It all is just so pretty.

    I like this. Yes, who thought red and grey would look so good together. But they do. Love your embroidered snowmen.
