It's so flippin' hot outside, it's time to think 'snow'. Plus, I've always been one to get all excited about Christmas way early, and start preparing. If I were working, I would be Christmas shopping already, buying not only gifts, but also decorations, and a Christmas ornament here and there even. I love Christmas. I also love snowmen. There was a time when I had a nice little collection of five or six really cute ones. They've been lost in several moves. I had them when I was married, and well, I don't have a lot left from back then. So I'm making some this year. Aren't these guys cute? I can't wait 'til they're done! They're Christmas Characters, Part 2, from Crochet! magazine, November '07. The pattern calls them Mr. Snow, Mrs. Snow, and Lil Snow. They're designed by Shelia Leslie.
So far, my Mr. Snow looks like this. Ha ha ha! I have to go get fiberfill for him before I can sew on the bottom, which is ready. I am working on the arms. Of course, you know little David is fascinated with him, too, and keeps looking at him when I'm not looking. So I'll go in there where he sits, and his poor head will be squooshed, and already he has some little Dorito dustings on him. Thank God for Tide to go pens, is all I've got to say. But he has worked up very quickly so far, I'm sure he's gonna be cute, and very festive.
Ladies, this is the extent of my love of snow. I love little stuffed snow people. I'm not a snow person, don't really care for it at all, except in Currier and Ives pictures. Yep, looks really pretty in photos. But you know, if it were the temperature I like, that stuff would be rain. So all my snowmen are stuffed, and strategically placed around my house at holiday time.
I'm also still working on the Round Ripple. More colors, look how it's coming along. Just a little orange makes it look much different than it did last week. David is excited for me to finish this, he laid on the floor watching TV under it earlier this week. I think he thinks it's done. It's not. LOL Still working on it.
Y'all have a great day! I've got to go get my kids signed up for school tomorrow, which is one reason why I went ahead and posted this tonight.
