I have TWO projects to show off today!! The first is one that I stitched quite a while back. So far back that I really can't remember when, but at least 3-4 years ago. I thought I'd have it done to show off on Friday but I was having troubles finding a nose for 'him'. The original model used a 'carrot stick'? or something like that and they cut a hole in the face of the snowman to place it in. I didn't want to cut into my snowman, I wanted a carrot button. I thought this would be pretty easy as Easter is just around the corner, and I did find a few but they were very cutesy and my snowman is a little on the rustic side. So, I went to Etsy and found the perfect carrot buttons...

And here he is all dressed up!!
I also finished stitching a project that was to be my mother-in-law's birthday present (last week!!). I did show her what I had done on it and asked how she wanted to display it so I would know how to finish it. She wants a hanger similar to mine (which is the one pictured). All that's left to do is order the one I found for her!! Oh, and start on 'Summer' Wordplay - I'm going to use the August chart for 'Summer'.
