I´ve been having a look at a lot of fellow bloggers´ posts, full of photos of their lovely last minute Christmas crafts, of decorations in the snow, fairy lights in the snow and more snow. Where´s mine then? I wouldn´t mind a sprinkling of the white substance either! It´s the right time of year and Christmas is always portrayed as being white.
Inland we have a lot of snow and the ski slopes were in full swing weeks ago, but I live on the North coast of Spain at sea level and we are lucky to have a few pinhead sized flakes float downwards once or twice a decade, and if you are not actually in the streets or looking out of a window, the phenomenon would probably be missed entirely. The weatherman has forecast rain for the next week, so we will have to content ourselves with this other form of H2O. However with or without snow, I have made a snowman.
In fact I´ve made two.
I didn´t use two of the chosen pieces because in my stash I found the perfect white fabric with tiny silver stars, ideal for the snowman´s body although not very appreciable in the photos. However, I may well buy more of the red fabric which is a lovely rich colour with a tiny print, very handy to have in one´s stash.
I added a fringe to his scarf.
I hadn´t planned on making any more Christmas items but I got a last minute request.......
As my next post will be after the 25th of December, I´d like to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas.
