First BOM finished

The January Snowman worked up fast and fabulous in redwork. I embroidered little white snowflakes all over as you can see closeup on the picture below.

I had first thought I'd make each BOM and then put them together at the end of the year, but this is a nicer idea, I think. I'll be able to finish one wallhanging each month and have them to display throughout the year. If I remember to switch them out! I have a wooden bear on the front door that has a change of clothes for each month. It's January now and I think he's still wearing July or August. In my defense, we rarely open the front door since we come in and out through the garage. But, I digress..

I found the backing I will use on the aforementioned baby quilt, (pic in previous post). Leota gave me several yards of four different kid fabrics and the perfect backing was in the bunch. Thanks, Leota!

Time to prepare for the day. Have a great Friday!
