I stitched him on 28 ct. PTP Helix (a regular go-to for me for snowmen), using the listed threads but adding dimension with beads for berries on the snowman and in his snowman bucket. I used turkey work on the ends of the scarf and black beads for his eyes and buttons. I also did satin stitch for the hat and the boots just because. Not sure why, didn't add anything frankly, but I wanted to. Anyway, this is such a fun series. There are 3 in this series so far, Boo was the pumpkin-headed girl which I did in October, Santa for Christmas which I haven't done yet and then this one. Cute and fun. Well, that's what I've done in the last month and a half, how about you? Stasi Buhrman is here with show and tell and she's finished so many pieces in the same amount of time that I did this one that I'm embarrassed. Got to get my mojo back big time. I started the Erica Michael's snowman strawberry on Monday on 28 ct. over one and told Sara I was going to try and have it done by this weekend....that so hasn't happened and in fact, I didn't stitch on it at all for 2 straight days. But I did get back to it last night and put a few stitches in. Today I've pulled another chart and will be taking it to work with me (because I'm stitching over 2 on this one I thought it might be easier to stitch at work) so I do feel this is more normal for me having multiple projects going at one time. Let's hope it helps get the juices flowing again. Have a great weekend and if you are down here with the Camp Wannastitch group, stop on by we'd love to see what you are working on.
