The Month of the Snowman

monday & tuesday have been sunny and 80 degrees and i decided it was high-time i took my christmas stuff down.
so this morning as the sun was shining, i started to take the wreaths & garland down.
to my joy, within 30 minutes the blue skies turned white and the temperatures dropped drastically...
i was once again in the "wintery" spirit that had previously consumed me and i decided to keep my snowmen up and embrace january as it should be. the month of the snowman! it didn't take long for me to realize that my quilts were not meeting the snowman requirement and i went searching the internet for quilts that i can make for the januarys to come.

here are some of my finds...



this one i found at tickled primitive, they have a bunch of primitive patterns


this is cheri's



and so is this one...
and if want some great redwork patterns or the more vintage look, you MUST check out shabby fabrics! they have a GREAT assortment of the fabulous cold men!
i think i'm good...now i just need to get my sewing room put back together!

I love all of Cheri's, of course, but that first one is a good find, too!

Lots of fun snowmen, love doing them on small pieces and hanging around the house.
