Snowmen to Stitch and Sew

Snowmen to Stitch and Sew

We are half way through December and we have already had two snow storms. That is unheard of in my area of New England! You could actually go out the door today and make a real snowman! In case you prefer to enjoy your snowmen without getting your toes frosty, today I have a round-up of snowmen patterns for you. One of the wonderful thing about using snowmen for your holiday decorations is that you don't have to take them down come January - they are wonderful decorations though out January and February, and even into March (although by that time, I don't want to see snow anymore!) So let's get stitching some snowmen!

First up, yes, I have a free smocking plate! I love these Smocked Snowmen from Martha Pullen!
