When Heidi designed her primitive ornaments, I told her no way was I making them. Well, last night I stitched this one, and tonight I sewed it to a backing, and stuffed it. You can see and download free, the designs Heidi did on her needlenecessities blog. You can click on it from my friends list..
This is the backing I used. Everyone knows, I love snowmen, so I thought I really should make this one. To put it on the blog, I had to go to my desktop. It is Vista, I never use it, George does. My camera card doesn't fit into the printer so we used George's camera for the pictures. We figured it out so I could do the entry. I think my battery isn't coming until next Thursday. I am not happy about that. I want my laptop back.

Oh, such a nice version of Heidi's ornament. And a nice way to personalize it with that sweet little snowman, lol.

Your "Let it Snow" little pillow is beautiful Nancy and I am sure Heidi will be thrilled that you have stitched it. Well done it looks so nice. Love the little snowman.

Warm hugs, Hazel (UK)

HEY! NEATO! I am sooooo happy you made one of my ornaments and that button on it is so cute. That is going to look great on your new version snowman tree this coming Christmas. You could even hang it on a doorknob. I love it!!!

Love and hugs ~

What a sweet surprise for Heidi! I love your ornament! What a neat idea to use a snowman button! You are a very clever girl - I see where Heidi gets her creativity.

Your little pillow is so pretty. I'm not surprised you couldn't resist this one :>)
I love the little button.

It's a perfect ornament. The button makes it complete. 'Its almost 4 weeks now that I had the time to hold a needle and threat.. I hope in a few months I can work on all my projects again. Now I have to go back to my studybooks, writing papers and get some boxes filled with all my stuff.
I hope your computer will be working soon, when the new battery arrives. It's a fear of mine that when I move to my newe house my computer won't work.

That was al real surprise for Heidi! And the button gives it a lovely personal touch. And smart thinking to use Georges camera and computer so we can enjoy your piece of art.

Linda said...

Hi Nancy
Sorry to hear you're having computer problems. I am having some camera issues myself and can't seem to load my pictures onto the computer! I'm not sure quite what to do.
Hope you're having a good day!
Hugs, Rhondi
