Finished Snow Days Blocks...

Brynwood Needleworks - My Last Two Finished "Snow Days' Blocks

I completed my last two Snow Days Bowl Filler blocks on Monday, and wanted to share them with you before I move on to my next project. Do you like the snowflake I purposely placed on the snowman's carrot nose? I also added the shoe lace and top fringe on the skate.

I really enjoyed working on these, adding special embroidered touches to each of them. As I've said, I'll fuse a woven fusible fabric backing to these (after they're ironed flat), and then I'm planning to create little cushions using either dark green or red plaid wool as the back side. I'll do that when I'm back in my studio, and will share them with you one last time after they're done.

Brynwood Needleworks - Kathy Schmitz Embroideries
 
So, I'm working on my Kathy Schmitz embroideries again. I have a little game I play. I use a Leonis Air Erasable Pen to draw out the designs. I then work to get the entire design done before the ink disappears. lol I'm okay as long as I get it done in one sitting. Otherwise, I have to wrap up the hooped fabric to keep the design visible. 
 
I'm doing these in brown Sulky #12 thread. I've also chosen the Kathy Schmitz fabrics for making a finished quilt once all the designs are stitched. There are about 32 of them, so it's going to take a while. I'm not planning to stitch them all at once, though. I'm also going to work on my Royal School of Needlework butterfly while I'm here in Florida. I'll keep you posted.

I adore how you add special touches to your embroideries. I look forward to seeng your Royal Butterfly progress. Winter days...even in Florida...lend themselves to a much more relaxed existence and stitchery is just right for relaxing. Blessings Dear...

Love these so much - and yes, the snowflake on the nose is delightful. Details are your forté, making something special and unique. I did a little seasonal stitching myself this year - a bonnie Sullivan pattern was my choice, for cookie cutter ornaments. My young nieces were here to visit so they, my mom, my daughter and son's girlfriend had a happy afternoon making. Your post here just brought that memory back for me, so thank you!
All the best for the New Year Donna,
