Fun with a snowman

Thanks to Missy's blog, I am currently craving pizzas ! Realy bad when you know we are going to have chicken tonight ... I hate cravings .... wish I can order one ...

I am having a lot of fun stitching my snowman. I don't know if I will stitch snowmen if we had a lot of snow. I just love snowmen for their cuteness. I noticed I never stitched for a purpose. I think I just stitch because it relaxes me and as a stressful person, I need to relax a lot What I regret is to not know how to finish my pieces. I'd like to know how to make biscornus, fobs, and so on in order to offer hand made gifts. I want to stitch the hat then I'll probably stitch the scarf. I also need to stitch some half cross stitches in the background (you know, the famous ones known for their artistic effect ... ) because otherwise I'll ba the whinning stitcher who cannot finish this background !!!
We got a very nice spring day today and we should have a warm day tomorrow! (rain should come back on saturday though ... ) Don't you love looking around you and seeing all these flowers and greens on trees? (I don't mind green on trees ! I swear!

I am SO not a finisher! Once you dive in though, it isn't that bad. Sometimes it hits me in the middle of the night how to finish something LOL! Biscornus are really easy once you get the hang of it but what I learned with them when I first started out was to take my time with it. If you rush it, you'll mess yourself up. Google instructions on the net, that is how I learned! :-)

You've done a lot on your snowman already. I wish I can sew, like making ornaments. We will get really warm weather in Denmark this Saturday, 20 degree! Love the flowers but not the smell of the fertilizer. CAn smell them from miles away.

No flowers here yet but finally the snow is melting. :) The snowman looks really cute. I'm glad you started stitching him. We are having some pizza this evening. :P´ I have a great gluten-free recipe for it.

Mmmmm pizza would really hit the spot right now.

Snowman is looking good.

Stitching is the peaceful part... designing can be frustrating at times. I spent 3 hours picking at clouds in my design, LOL.

Today we finally have warm Spring like weather.

I wish I could finish, too. I've made five attempts at biscornu-assembling, and only one turned out okay. Very frustrating!

I'm looking forward to seeing your snowmen fully stitched! Looking great so far!

I want some pizza too.....lots and lots!

Nice new start. Biscornus and fobs are really easy to make. There are heaps of great tutorials out there.
