A Nose By Any Other Name...

I'm working on two projects at one time, so I don't have tons of progress. BUT, the snowman has taken shape! If anyone else has done this one, did you find the fabric a bit "loose"? It seems to pull more than the red fabric did, so there are little "holes" in between all the stitches. I don't like that! Maybe when it's all done, it'll be OK? I'm IN LOVE with his nose however.

Someone asked about the button switch-a-roonie I wanted to do on this. I think I will replace the original buttons with some tiny rose buttons. At least that's the plan right now. And hopefully I'll have a new design ready to go in another week or so. Stay tuned!

I hope everyone is having a great stitchy week! We are slowly getting the house back in order after the holidays and I hate doing it. You'd think with a small house it'd take no time whatsoever. WRONG!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Mr Green Snowman is looking cute. I've always loved his expression!

Jennifer said...

I love this little guy! Have a soft spot for snowmen! Have a fun one!!

Dee said...

Yes. He has a GREAT nose.

I'm thinking your holes will shrink back to normal when you wash the project at the end.

I love the Smyrna crosses in his body too. Oh, and the tassle on his hat. Precious!

Jane said...

Don't remember my fabric being that loose when I did it. The 30ct Baby's Breath fabric I'm working on Summer Iris at the moment is a little similar. I've noticed larger holes in between the stitches. It's not too noticeable though and I'm sure your's will be the same. Keep at it, it's looking so neat and very cute!. (I found the nose hard to do with the thicker thread. Pulled it a couple of times before I was happy with it. You've done a great job of yours.)

Glenna said...

I agree with you on the nose--definitely the best. He's so cute!

Tammy, he is beautiful! Your stitching is lovely. Back stitching will fill in the little holes if they bug you. I love the colours of his hat.

Tracy said...

Tam, He's cute. Can't wait to see the little buttons! You have any new designs?

Blu said...

He's very cute. I'm partial to his hat actually.

nima said...

wow...nice to see the progress of snowman.

Sharlotte said...

This is coming along really well. We have a somewhat smaller house too and I totally understand that it takes longer than one might think to put all the Christmas away. We didn't put as much out this year so it only took parts of a couple of days to put it away. It has been so cold to work outside here that the lights are still on the house though. LOL!

Brigitte said...

He's such acutie. And as for the little holes - I think they will go back to normal after washing the fabric.

Siobhan said...

Cathie said...

He is very cute. I know what you mean about that type of fabric, I've worked on some of that too and don't like the effect as much.

Daffycat said...

He is adorable, Tammy!

I am not a fan of loose weaved linen. Give me a firmer fabric any day.

His nose is quite cute! I too am working on a few different things and I feel like I have nothing to show for it! :(

He is turning out quite cute though..

WendyZ said...

I just want to eat that nose! Sooo cute!! Oh, and don't feel bad... our house isn't back to "normal" either and we have a simple holiday!

Suzanne said...

He's very cute! I find that sometimes I need to change the tension of my stitching, especially with loose fabric. I am sure that it will be fine though.

Cindy said...

Your snowman is very cute :) I don't like loose weave linen, either...but it will look great when it is finished.

Don't feel bad about the holiday decorations...I still have a few Halloween things up ;)
