Snowmen Alert!

This post is for all you Snowmen lovers out there. I just know I can;t be the only one with this little addiction. These are some of my favourites from my collection. I only get to bring them out at Christmas as I don;t have the room to display them all year round. I started collecting them ten years ago , some I have bought myself , others were gifts from friends and family. I;m still on the look-out for this years addition. Enjoy!



















































On the stitching front I have been up to my eyes in glue and invisible thread since mid November. I;ve lost count of the amount of finishes I;ve attempted to do. Some I;m happy with some I;m not but I do need the practice and I am feeling a little more confident now about trying to do some more. Hopefully in the next few days I will get the chance to pick up my needle again and see if I can remember how to stitch. I need to get my December SAL chart done and I;m determined to stitch at least one Ornie from this years Just Cross-stitch Ornie mag.
Hope everyone is having a good week. Hugs.

they are all so cute, I really could not tell which one I like the most !



why is there this big open space between your post and the part where it sais post your comment here ?
or is that just my computer being silly ?

Elaine said...

I;m sorry I had problems uploading my pictures and I don't know how to close the gap to the post a comment part. It;s very FRUSTRATING!

Catherine said...

Wow! That's some collection! I only have a couple of snowmen things and I sometimes leave them up for the entire winter.

Maggie said...

I love your collection of snowmen Elaine, they are just great :-)

To close the large gap between your post and the comments go back to edit your post and scroll to the bottom, then it's just the matter or deleting the blank space. Place your curser at the bottom of the page and keep hitting the delete button or the back space key, gradually the space will close up, carry on until you post text is at the bottom of the page.
Hope that makes sense, not too good at explaining, lol.

BTW, i will get around to e-mailing you tis week.
