Fifth Finish For 2011

Needles were flying and scissors were snipping! There was smoke coming out the ends of my fingers I tell you! It was crazy! In the end, this was the result -

LOL! Yes, Chilly by Stitchy Kitty is finally done :o) DH asked me last night why I was still working on him. He thought that maybe it was a hard design. Nope...just plain ol' procrastination.

Chilly's now holding snowflakes ;o)

I had a little fun and added a fringe to the bottom of his scarf. I thought that it needed something. I like it :o)

This was a fun SAL and if it weren't for Jenn, Chilly probably would have never gotten stitched this year. I'm really enjoying doing SALs with other stitchers because it motivates me. To see Jenn's finish, head on over to her Blog. Thanks for the fun Jenn :o)

Looks great! I really like the fringe you added!

What other projects are you thinking of starting? If I have it in my stash, maybe you and I could do a SAL? I find it is the best motivation!

Love the stitched & button snowflakes both! And what a great idea to add the fringe to the scarf. That's one of the great things about cross stitch... making it unique and our own!

Being from Michigan I don't usually stitch snowmen....maybe because we have enough of our own. But this one is super cute! Love the colors!

Soooo sweet, makes me wish the snow would come back again (but not yet!) Chilly looks great on your chosen fabric colour and the extra touches are great xxx

Great finish Cathey, do love the fringe is it stitched or attached? Did that make sense? Also the buttons as snowballs look so real.

You are so right, SALs can be very motivating. And what a funny idea to add that fringe, lol.

staci said...

Adorable finish! I have this printed out (somewhere)...I love the way yours turned out!

Blu said...

He looks so cute! Those bright pink cheeks!

On the other hand, I just realized that his name mixes upper and lower case letters and that bothers me...

TammyK said...

Congrats Cathey! Love his snowflakes :)

Hi Cathey,

Oh, where to begin?? So many
wonderful things on your blog
to talk about and admire.

I think I'll start off by
gushing about Chilly. He is
so amazing! I love the colors
in his scarf, I love his pink
cheeks, I love the fringe that
you added to the bottom of his
scarf. In short, I'm in LOVE!

I have this chart in my stash.
Ohhhhh boy! Will you be
stitching the other two snow
guys to keep Chilly company??

Snowboobs. Snort, giggle,
roll eyes, etc.

The pin cushion that Patty
stitched for you is beautiful.
Love that red!! Which looks
fabulous on the fabric that
she used. Where on earth do
you buy walnut shells anyway?

If I break down and buy all
the Christmas Rules charts
and stuff I'll be blaming
you Cathey. Yours is looking
so incredibly beautiful with
every block that you stitch.
Why do you have to be such a
inspiring stitcher??

I'm so glad that you got such
amazing, fun stash with the
Secret Santa coupon. I can
only say you're welcome and
enjoy.

I see that the irresistible
and adored Cadbury Easter
Creme eggs are once again
tempting and tantalizing
their way into your heart.
Snack cakes hmmmmm. What
next? I love the little bunny.

It's been snowing here again.
Then it rained. Now we're
ankle deep in slush and mud
while a thick fog coats
everything. I am so sick of
grey, dreary, wet Winter.
Phil saw a Robin today. Hope
he brought Spring with him.

CHeers!

Justflo said...

Just love 'Chilly' I think you personalisation idea will get copied loads of time. Agree It certainly adds something.

I love this little guy. He is too too cute.

Angela P said...

OMG, how did I miss this one :) I love your Chilly finish.

Did you see my finish of the 3 of them together? I couldn't decide which one to stitch so I did all 3 but they did feel never ending ;)

Sharon said...

He is gorgeous! Looks great.
