SAL Report: Nieces' Ornaments Stitched

I had promised I'd make the "twin" to the Santa ornament from last month sometime this year, and I decided this month was as good a time as any other. This delightful snowman is from Lizzie*Kate's Tiny Tidings XIX, stitched on the called-for fabric with the called-for colors. 

He stitched up much faster than I thought he would. I stitched it while I was listening to Amy Poehler's Yes Please. (I had finished Bryan Stevenson's book, which you should all read. Yes, every one of you! Everyone in the whole world should read it. We need more stonecatchers.) Her book is enjoyable but unless you dedicate yourself to the idea that it is improvisational, it will drive you bonkers. Anyway, that's why he's smiling; he listened to the last three disks. ;)

ANOTHER finish? My goodness, are you out to set a record this year? He's really cute - well done!

Isn't he cute! I am on a snowman kick this year myself... Decided to do one a month during 2016. I need to listen to more audiobooks while I stitch rather than watching television--great idea!

He is so cute, the snow is almost gone here in Minnesota, so no making snowmen outdoors.

Great snowman!
I read The Guardian's review of Amy's book and it seems to be very much like the current craze here - "books" by YouTubers! I don't care, people are reading and buying books from us. It doesn't matter if it's Dickens or Zoella it's all money in the till LOL
