Last Minute Christmas

    I've been seeing these sock snowmen everywhere on the internet this year and finally decided that I just had to do one.  Someone in my family collects snowmen and displays them all over the house at Christmas.  I usually make a snowman each year and give it to her but this year I just hadn't done that in the face of too many other things to do.  Last weekend, I regretted my decision not to make one so scrambled around and got the necessary items (white sock, rice, ribbon, buttons, etc.)  Here's the end result.


     There are instructions available on several different internet sites.  I just did a search using "Sock Snowman," chose one and followed the steps.  It took me about 45 minutes, including letting the glue dry on the buttons and the embellishment on his hat.  He stands about 8 inches high.

Oh that is just super adorable. Did you have to sew anything?

I am currently working on a secret project for my DH. It is taking many hours, but the most difficult part (I think) is done.

Blessing hugs,
