I'm in Love.....

.... with my snowman.  Yes, tis true.  It was love at first sight when Maria (Star Rug Company) posted the pattern "Jolly" on her blog last year.  Then my blogger friend Lauren (Rugs and Pugs)bought the pattern and she posted a picture of her progress.  That is when I knew he had to be mine too.

I was so hoping to have him done by this evening but figure it is close enough so this is what my JOLLY snowman looks like right now.  Just HAD to share.
I loved Jolly so much that he needed to be a little different from the others.  Jolly needed a star to light his way to the tree destination.  So hooked a star at the top, thus you can see the lighted path under the feet.  Dang, there is an empty area under his left hand so I could hook a lantern.....nah.

BTW, 98% of the wool used is pre-cut, left over wool worms.  I did cut a few dark navy blue pieces for background wool to go with the existing blue wool but the rest is all left overs.  Oh my but it gives me such pleasure to use those worms.

My Magdalena Olde Ducks is sitting in the wings but since it is getting close to snow time wanted to be sure to have a snowman piece on my harvest table.  Now I wonder if my dear sweet daughter-in-love will try and sneak out of the house with the new man in my life... my Jolly Snowman.  I'll bet she does because she LOVES snowmen and I've hooked her a piece and made an applique quilt with snowmen.  Will definitely have to keep my eyes on that one for sure.

Have a great evening everyone.



  1. I want him too.. He is too cute for words and I love your changes. The colors are great!

  2. Very, very cute. I can see why he had to come home with you. Nice work.

  3. I really do love that pattern, he is so fun and you did a beautiful job on your wool choices.


  4. I love him too. And your little tweaks. I was envious when Lauren hooked it last year but have resisted. Maybe next year. It does feel good to use those leftover worms but my basket never seems to get smaller. I swear they multiply at night.

  5. He is pretty cute it looks like you have a spot for a lantern all picked out there.

  6. Good for you that you are using mainly worms. I need another project that uses them. They just keep multiplying. He is a cutie for sure. Aw, be nice and give it to your d-i-love.
    Hugs :)

  7. Your snowman is really handsome, no wonder you're in love. The star is a great addition. Better keep your eye on him for sure.
    Stay warm but keep Mr Snowman cool.
