April IHSW

I completed Snowed In of 6 Fat Men on Friday and started Snow Friends Saturday.  I'm enjoying it very much!

Newton was so many colours and lots of backstitching, but very adorable on the banding that Valerie sent to me in an exchange.  Thanks Valerie!   I have ordered the hanger for this last week so shall back it with some felt, ready for Christmas when it comes!  lol   I am not wishing for time to fly by, just love the season so enjoy stitching Christmas all year!!  

I hope many of you enjoyed your IHSW.  I did finish off stitching a couple of other items, but shall wait until they are received then post a pic.   Happy Stitching everyone and hope you have a wonderful week!  :)

    1. A very special thank you to you Valerie for the wondering banding! I love Newton on it, and I ordered the hanger so should be able to send you a pic once it's done on that. It will be ready for Christmas!! LOL Hoping to have some summer before then though! I'm trying to catch up with Nia on the snowmen but she's almost done! :) Happy Stitching!!

    1. Thanks so much Dani... late replying too ... so sorry!! I just picked up wooden dowels and beads today to make the hanger. I purchased one, but ended up being way too wide, and looked silly. So next thing is easy to make a wooden one! Happy Stitching! :)
