~ I Finally Finished Him~

Isn’t he cute? I finally finished him and I put him in the entryway. The pattern is from Twigs n Sprigs, I love her snowman patterns always cheerful and right now I need that because we are getting hit again with the snow, not again please!!! LOL I’ll survive though, I just hate that you can’t get out, I’d even go to Walmart which I’m not a huge fan of, I always feel you spend more money there then you need so I try to stay away:)


Here is a closer look at him…it says Winter Friends, I also used instant coffee and cinnamon on him then baked at 220* for about 20 minutes. He’s a cutie!


I also made these hearts, the one on the far left I made last year but the next two I made the other day, can you say “bored”?LOL. I used wool and felt and also my homespun hearts in a wood carrier that I had painted mustard over black. I laid them all on some coffee dyed cheese cloth.


Well, like I said we are getting hit again with the snow as you can see, they said an inch an hour, right now it is coming down hard. I was just out driving in it and the roads are getting bad AGAIN! I’m really going to miss that tree come spring and summer, it had been hit by lightning about two summers ago but we left it alone, I guess it just couldn’t take the weight of the snow and of course we have to buy a new light that it broke when it fell:(


I hope everyone had a happy Valentines Day, as I was reading some blogs it looks like you all did. I didn’t get on here till today to post I worked Sat. 8 to 1:30 then went to a Valentines dance then had to work Sunday 10 to 3:00… I was one very tired lady last night:)

My guest room is coming along, I want to paint the chest of drawers black and buy a new lamp for in there so when I get it all done I will be sure to share pictures of it.

Spaghetti and meatballs are on for tonight plus garlic bread…after work I stopped at Michele’s for a turkey dinner yesterday, it was so good on a snowy day! Stush and Chris had went to the car show in Pittsburgh and stopped too to have some turkey too:)

Well that’s about all that’s been going on around here snow and more snow.LOL

Stay warm and cozy where ever you are!



  1. I have to agree with you....I AM SICK OF SNOW!!!..grrrrrr

    I do love that snowman!..you must have REALLY been bored to make a Snowman?!!!...cuz with as much snow as we have...I wouldn't be thinking snowman!...LOL

  2. I love your snowman stitchery! We are getting hit with more snow in southern Ohio also! Brrr!

  3. The snowman is great. Love the hearts too!

  4. He is so cute! I love the freebie patterns from Twigs too.

    I can't take much more snow either. It isn't even snowman snow. We teachers were just told that we will have to make up the days that we missed last week (not the kids, just us teachers). At this rate we will be in school until July. I am hating PA.

    Stay warm, Kim the prim schoolmarm

  5. Your snowman turned out great! I love Twigs' patterns too.

  6. Love your snowman! I did one of her rabbits and finished last summer. Finally got a back on it recently. Love her patterns too. Your hearts are cute! Hope your tree makes it! Hang in there, the snow does eventually go away. :)

  7. Rondell~ Your snowman is wonderful! You did a fantastic job. I also love the hearts that you made. You are very talented! Have a good evening! ~Dan~

  8. Your boredom has yielded some pretty sweet creations, Rondell. And I hope you don't get too much snow this time. We're due for another 6-10 inches and all I can think about is spring.

    Stay safe, my friend!

  9. He is really cute - love the snowman! Ooh don't even get me started on the snow - it's snowing here too in PA - grrrrrrrrrrrr

  10. I love her patterns, I have two snowmen pieces that I hang in the winter, so fun to do.


  11. Very cute snowman, Rondell!
    I can't wait to see your guest room--

    Take care and keep warm. Be careful driving in all that snow!

  12. I love your snowman stitchery! I can't believe how much snow you're getting hit with lately. It snowed here yesterday, but the streets are clear and it wasn't more than an inch or two.

  13. Oh dear, more snow! I feel so darned sorry for all you eastern gals. It's so hard to lose our trees - and a lamp post to boot. Hope you stay in and warm, but mostly safe. THINK SPRING, Dawn

  14. This snowman is so wonderful. I have browse your site and see how you did him..really turned out nice.
    Honestly I don't know how you guys do it with all the snow I would be a mental patient by now...I guess blogging would help on some days.lol
    Glad I stopped by for a visit
    Take care

  15. Love your snowman stitchery, Rondell & the hearts. I hope you don't get buried ~ we have been so lucky here in Mi. All these storms have missed us. I hope we don't have to pay for it in March. Your dinner sounds delish.

  16. I think everyone is so ready for spring to arrive....We had four more inches of snow here in Pa yesterday....Now its just getting to be to much..Love your snowman stitchery...so cute...

  17. Rondell, I love the snowman stitchery you did. It came out GREAT!!! I LOVE doing those.Also I love the prim hearts.
    I saw the picture of the snow you posted and we are getting snow as I type this to you right now, YUK!!!!!
    I can't wait for Spring and I almost forgot I LOVE your header!!!!!

    God Bless Prim Friend,

  18. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that snowman AND the hearts. I can't imagine the amount of snow that you are having. We're having the coldest winter we've had in quite some time down in central Alabama. I know you're ready for warmer weather and so are we!

  19. Thats so strange, I have spaghetti, meatballs and garlic bread on for dinner as well.

    You are surely getting dumped on this winter, while here I am in Ontario with hardly any snow at all. We have only had one snowstorm since New Years here...and you are welcome to it!

    Love the stitchery too, I always have one of Twig's patterns in the hoop for stitching.

    I would love to hear more about the spare room renovations as well.

  20. Your snowman is lovely; but I am ready for some green! We have way too much of the white stuff outside the window. Bring on the sun & the green grass.


  21. Your snowman stitchery turned out really cute Rondell!


  22. Love the snowman and hearts, Rondell! We've had more than enough snow, too!! I'm definitely ready for spring!!

    Take care,

  23. Love your snowman! Great job! You'll hate hearing this but my daffodils are coming up! Spring is around the corner~ don't give up hope!

  24. Goodness girl!! Sorry you are getting more of that stuff! At least you have a good attitude about it.

    That snowman is a cute pattern, you did a wonderful job on him. I love your hearts! I like the idea of laying them on coffee-stained cheesecloth. I'm always looking for something to use as a filler. Thanks for the idea!

  25. Hi Rondell....I love your snowman stitchery and love Twiggs patterns...she has SOOOO MANY doesn't she?

    Hmmmm....you are the second person mentioning turkey in their posts today! Sounds wonderful.
