Latest Finish

My latest finish is this "Let it Snow" First Friday Freebie from Kaaron at The Painted Quilt. I decided to make it into a quilted pillow to match the"Snowflake" Quilt that I still haven't quilted because I cannot decide what I want to use for the back.

I have not embroidered in years so I was surprised when I watched a tutorial on the backstitch because I thought I always made a backstitch, but apparently not. I was taught to embroidery as a child by my mother. I like the way mine looks, so I am not worried about learning the "real" back stitch. I'll just keep doing it my way.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. So cute & I love snowmen. According to one of my old embroidery books, there are several backstitches, so I am sure you are safe!

  2. It's adorable, I wouldn't worry either! But then I'd digitze it and stitch it out by machine, LOL

  3. Now, I didn't think about doing that CJ. I think I'll try it.

  4. So cute!!! I love that shade of blue.
