Think Winter... Do I Have A Choice?

Helloooooooo from a very snowy area of Massachusetts!
This gives you an idea of what it looked like first thing this morning and it's been snowing all day I've been in the office.  I'm sitting here at my desk, punched out and all ready to go.  Dreading having to brush off the car and hit the road slip slidin' away...
 Yes, I live in the Northeast.  We are supposed to be used to this,  and expect it, I get it.  But we've been spoiled because this has been MY kind of winter.  Once "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" is over for the season, I'm done with the snow for the season also.  :)

The ONLY thing left for me to like then is my winter related obsession---SNOWMEN!

This is "Think Winter" by Lizzie*Kate that I made for Christmas for my friend Amanda.  We've been friends since 4th grade and she is my longest friend.  We choose to say "longest" friend vs. "oldest" friend... it just sounds better now that we are over 16, don't you think? This was stitched on 28ct. sand colored linen with suggested DMC colors.  The only small substitution is the gingerbread button (CUTE!) where there should be a present.

Here is Bent Creek's Photobooth Snowmen.  This is in my "to be framed" pile and I purchased it out at Stitchville USA in MN this past December.  It comes with the pattern, a piece of 32 ct. Confederate Gray Linen and some glass beads. I used DMC for this one.  LOVE IT (obviously).

I'm still model stitching, stitching, stitching which is what I'll be doing tonight.  I can't show you yet since the Designer hasn't released it to the public yet, but you know I will when I can. In the meantime, have a great night and remember to just keep stitching! ~Nicole


  1. Thinking winter isn't my favorite frame of mind, but I do like the stitchery! The snowmen are fun, too.

  2. Oh, no--more snow? I guess I should be glad it didn't hit us here in Pennsylvania! But, at least you have a good excuse to stay inside and stitch... Your gift for your "longest friend" is adorable and I've always loved the Photobooth Snowmen--it looks very nice on that gray linen...

  3. I love the snow pictures. Down here in SE TX, we've already had a few days of about 80 degrees....and @#@#$ mosquitoes.

    I love your snowman stitching.

  4. I so agree with you about the snow, once the holidays are over there should be no more snow. Down here in Northern VA we have been spoiled this year too, a very mild winter. Heaven only knows what kind of summer we will have. Well I'm glad you got home safely and all I can say is stay warm and spring is on the way. I love your photobooth snowmen the stitching is beautiful.
