Snowball Projects


Karen over at Sew Many Ways, is hosting a snowball block sewing night. I thought I'd join in too (won't you join us?). Amongst my stash is a collection of sixteen charm squares (given to me) in mauve and pastel green - not really my colours, but pretty. I thought I would make a snowball cushion for my MIL's birthday, to try out the block.


Here it is finished.......ta-dah!


The cushion is quite a big one. It is sitting on one of the old painted wooden chairs that came with the railway carriage - another project to do. It will get sanded back and repainted (one day....lol!)


Hee hee, a little green sedge frog next to the sliding door latch on my studio. Can you see in the window? Some more snowball blocks on the go........
Cheerio,
Sandi xx

Love it! Well done Sandi! I'm sure your MIL will love it too! You can never have enough cushions when they're that gorgeous! Such a cute little froggie!! I found a BLUE green tree frog the other night. I told my friend Justin last night and he was like "You know how rare they are!!! Go find it and get it for me!" lol I hope when I get my camera back to find him again and take some photos!

This is just fantastic! What a great way to use a few snowballs that you can sew in a night. Is it ok if I use one of your pictures when I do my next snowball post?
Love this idea!
Take care,
