While straightening up my sewing room a couple of weeks ago I found this cross-stitched snowlady from 2002. I wouldn't have believed it was that long ago if not for the date being stitched on it! Amber loved snowmen and of course the color purple :) I had been very sick a few months before and to keep myself busy while sitting around connected to an oxygen machine I stitched it!
The snowlady was never framed so I decided to make a pillow. I tried several fabrics to coordinate with the colors and was about to give up when unexpectedly while in Joann's in Birmingham a couple of weeks ago I found THE fabric! I was just glancing at the fabrics and there was this cute snowflake print with all the right colors! (I just took the pics and I don't have the greatest lighting at night.)
So here she is all completed! I made it for less than five dollars ... backing, stuffing and fabric. I also made the piping from cord I already had on hand. That's the great thing about knowing how to sew is making something for a few dollars.
Here is a closeup of her! Look at those high heel shoes and purple accents! Amber loved purses (that was HER obsession).
She is really not Christmasy so I can leave her out during the winter months and reflect back on when I sat and stitched this little cutie! In fact this may have been the last thing I have cross-stitched.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my little snowlady pillow! I really need to give the snowlady a name :)
Thanks for visiting!
