I have been very busy here at the store with the holiday rush an custom orders, but the other day I took the time to make something fun just for the anyhow of it! Meet Mr Snowman....

I used up some Homespun scraps that were laying around from one of Moms projects. 

He looks all dirty but that's just the fabric;) 
I never did any hand applique or embroidery before so that was really fun!
I really didn't have a pattern, I saw a photo of a similar one but couldn't find the pattern for it. 
Will have more pics later on of a baby quilt I quilted the other week! After I figure out how to edit a pic taken in raw;)

Lil Miss..

Kricket had her first litter of puppies (2 girls and a boy) on 9-11. They are a rowdy bunch and a lot of fun right now. I was outside with them the other evening and just had to grab my camera and take a couple pics. Thought this lil girl looks a lot like her mama...
