Check out this little Snowman Wall Hanging Quilt I made for my mom! Ack! I’m in a cute snowy daze just looking at how happy he looks!
If you follow me on Instagram, you got a sneak peek at the work in progress this past weekend.
My mom has been “hinting” several times that she has a blank wall in her dining room that is perfect for decorating seasonally with a quilted wall hanging. Fall flew right by with nothing to cover the blank wall… even when I had the best intentions of making something for her.
After a lovely Thanksgiving, I had a spark on inspiration, and I knew I had the scrap fabric to make it happen! If I don’t have to get out and go shopping, there is a 95% better chance of me actually getting something started and finished in a timely manner.
And my cute little snowman came to life overnight! Look at his little nose! I love the little touch of the Minky fabric.
Also, remember on my custom DIY sewing machine cover how I used several buttons that were from a collection that was gifted to me from my grandmother? I pulled them back out again and added a few to the snowman because I knew my mom would appreciate the sentiment as well.
This fluffy little snowman took about two days from start to finish.
Normally, I would tell you to space it out a little more and not let the process consume all of your time.
Normally, I would tell you not to get so involved in a quilt that it takes away so much precious time from your family.
Normally, I would tell you to not just assume that everyone is good with holiday leftovers for the 3rd night in a row and then order pizza when someone complains because… score! Now you don’t even have to heat up the leftovers. (win-win) I mean, I totally have this dinner thing down by this point, right?
Normally, I would tell you not to power through a project like this because it might drive your spouse crazy… but today…
Today, I am telling you that we are all still alive. Everyone made it and life is back to normal.
…and it feels really good to have it finished and hung in my mom’s house 🙂
