.... 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.
