Welcoming Mr Iced with realllll snow!


Nothing could get me more in the Christmas spirit than
waking up this morning to some reallllll snow...

And sew Mr Iced..( my creation)  had to come
out with me for a photo shoot....

This photo was taken with the silver reflector..
kind gives it a blueish tone....
Isn't he.....





This photo was taken with the white reflector to reflect
some morning sunlight on Mr Iced....
OHHHH he looks a bit off...look at his button..
to the side...it is supposed to me in the centre..
He was just sew darn excited to get out there this morning..

I am working on the pattern...it is very easy 
and is done with some white flannel....he is really soft and white
and yes Mr Iced has black boots..

What snowman have you ever seen with boots?

Well mine likes to be dressed and he gets cold feet it seems...


Hope you are all having a lovely weekend with family 
and friends...

Around here after I make Mr Iced as a pattern
I will be baking some shortbread and some gingerbread...


We have snow...yep...snow...
LOVE WINTER! 

one month till Christmas EVE!

Day 3 at Holiday Lane Blog hop...



HOLIDAY LANE
pillow blog hop day 3

EVER since I saw this pillow last fall from 
our  sweet JiLL from  Jillily StudioI fell in love with it...
Clearly a year later it still is one of my most favourite
designs from a very sweet lady  whom I admire...
She is witty, bright, inspiring and downright creative! 



SEW I called her and convinced her in my very firm way lol
that I WANTED this pillow pattern for our blog hop.
She finally accepted my reasoning...
"If I love it, everyone will love it too" lol

 Jill has a new book out,  new fabric line and this Holiday Lane pillow
pattern to share...This is "simple piecing and a little applique."..
( once the book and fabric comes in, I will be taking photos
to show you too)

I am excited to say the least to see what your HOLIDAY LANE
will look like..

Would you believe JILL and I have already discussed
next years HOLIDAY LANE PILLOW series...Yep...lol

and designers...This will be our very last blog hop for 2012...
