    Default Snowman pillow

    Over the weekend, I have made these Snowman pillows. The pattern was in the Better Homes and Garden magazine All People Quilt and is now posted on there web site. Back when it was just in the magazine, I made probably a good 40 and gave them to co-workers, fellow quilters, friends and family. This year my daughter asked if I could make a couple for her to give to new in-laws and grandparents. I have probably another 6 in various stages of fusing and applique and stuffing. It's just amazing how once you start adding the carrot nose, mouth and eyes that they come alive. Quick and easy, and a pleasure to give this holiday season. Robert, from northern Iowa.

    Love, love, love these. I have a friend who likes snowmen. May just have to find the pattern and make her a couple. Great idea putting them on the door! Thanks for sharing, Robert!

    Those are cute!

    (I'm glad you included the picture of one hanging on the doorknob because I was wondering why the heck you put handles on a pillow!)
    K is for Karen .....................Cremation - My last hope for a smokin' hot body.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?
