for Julie,

Not a very good photo, was quickly taken on my phone! This dear wee chap was a birthday present for my friend Julie, we both share a love of snowmen!  I  have also made her a fairy wishes jar'',  at the moment she is in Australia visiting her son Jamie, so I will give it to her on her return.


Once I finished Julie's, I thought I would make one for myself, which is very different to Julies.

But I am pleased with both!  Been stitching and doing some secret sewing for a Christmas in July swap I have joined, so will be able to show more of that soon!  '

The weather here in Taranaki has been shocking, and my thoughts are with all the locals who are caught up in the floods.  On average we as a region got 280-300 mls of rain in 36 hours!  The damage is mind blowing!!
Take care everyone,


  1. Hi Michelle...........remember my name is Julie!!!! Hehe Gosh I love that wee snowman! I was wondering how you were going with the big dump of the wet stuff.....pretty shocking stuff.

  2. Oh Michelle - love both your gorgeous projects, but as a snowman lover too I LOVE your gorgeous snowman

  3. Oh of course I love Julie's gorgeous Frosty!!! I love the fairy jars...I have a Gratitude jar...lovely idea! I hope you are OK with the terrible weather event xx

  4. The snowman and jar are gorgeous, such lovely gifts! You have been suffering with the weather in your area, I hope things are starting to improve.
