Final February Finish

I just couldn't hold myself back. I wanted to finish this project in the worst way, so here it is: Snowman Button Sampler from Homespun Elegance!



Okay, I should have straightened those buttons before I took the picture - and I noticed that the shading on the snowman's face is vertical, whereas the rest of the body is horizontal! It doesn't bother me enough to rip and re-stitch, so it is what it is!

Quick review of February's goals:

  • Continue working on SAL's - Apricot Elegance, Game Board Sampler and Miss Mary Mack (Worked on both Apricot Elegance and Game Board Sampler)

  • Work on a project from WIP bag (It wasn't exactly a WIP, but I started and finished Snowman Button Sampler)

  • Stitch an ornament with Friends Gather (I completed Glory Bee's Seasons Greetings from 2005 JCS Ornament issue.)

  • Start on house exchange project (Started; sorry, can't show this one until complete!)

  • Participate in other Friends Gather challenges (Hopefully next month - unfortunately, due to some unexpected events, my month was thrown out of whack.)

    Not bad if I may say so myself. Will post March's goals in tomorrow's update.

    Great work this month, Cathy! You did much better than I did. :) Your snowman looks great; I actually like the change in striping, I think it gives him character and makes his head stand out better!
