~*As Promised ~ Weekend Update*~

Hello Dear Friends! I'll be posting updates throughout the weekend ~ at least that is the plan ~ of my finishes. This one still counts even though it was finished LATE last night... it was about midnight! (that is LATE for me)

The punching for this ditty was completed a couple of weeks ago. It is a gift for my dear~sweet MIL. I did the framing last night.. mounting the punch on a piece of textured wool & trimming with hand spun, wool yarn. For a special touch, I decided to add a little cross stitch to it too. I had thought about writing on a piece of muslin ~ but those of you that know me, know my penmanship is horrible! (It is true!) I stitched on some wee, itty bitty, teeny tiny, scrap of linen the words 'Snowy Days'. The name of the freebie doodle is, of course, ~*Snowy Tony*~ in honor of my sweetheart's birthday... but decided to change the wording to something more common. Oh, did you see I forgot to flip the design before I started the punching? Silly me!

The first birthday party for the weekend is in a couple of hours. Maybe I can sneak in a little more finishing time before we have to leave.

More updates later. Warm smiles to you....


  1. So cute and I love how you added the linen! Your MIL will be thrilled with it.

  2. Betty,
    She will love it. Funny, I was just thinking that last night, making a pn and adding a piece to the side with stitchery;)


  3. I get so inspired stopping by. You do the neatest things. Your items rock.

  4. Your MIL is going to love this. The framed snowman turned out so well it's sure to be a great little treasure!
