Snowbound

is an official flimsy!

I decided not to include the embroidered snowflakes that were on the original.  
I'm not that good at embroidery, so I would not want to ruin it at this point.

While searching for a lost quilt in my "quilt closet," the one with the warning sign on the door, I decided it was time to make something out of all the random blocks I have collected.
I choose my favorite house blocks and put them together into this little fellow.  I was inspired by Temecula Quilt Co.'s version.
I also quilted and framed my twisted heart from a few years back.
Now I just have Farmer's Wife blocks, Barbara Brackman Civil War blocks and two collections of exchange blocks to figure out what to do with. 

We had a lovely visit over Thanksgiving week in northern California. Now it is time to decorate for Christmas!  I don't think I will get to any of my blockhead projects until the end of the month, BUT...I am working on 2 cross-stitch ornaments!  Stay tuned.  Mary and Darlene will get a laugh out of this one.

Beautiful stitches! I'm partial to the Snowbound because I love snowmen! I can't imagine piecing those tiny twisters... gorgeous!

Love snowbound! Snowmen and I go hand in hand. LOL Cross stitching? Oh my, you are brave! I did it years ago, but my eyes can't handle the tiny linen anymore. Have fun!

Nice job on all three projects. Rather than starting new I should get some others finished too. Thanks for sharing.

Your snowman quilt is adorable. I have the pattern but it has not even been out of the plastic bag. A future project for sure, especially after seeing yours.

I received my copy of Snowbound a couple of weeks ago and seeing your completed flimsy has given me the urge to get a start on mine. Great job!

The Snowbound is fantastic, I love snowmen. I've got the same little heart somewhere in my sewing room.
