Claire’s On a Roll…

You can tell that two things are happening here on the West Coast of Canada…Christmas and Winter are fast approaching and our weather has been rainy and cold keeping Claire inside where she has been stitching her heart out!

Just LOOK at her latest creation!

Is this not the cutest!!  (And NO that is not a question…it’s a FACT!)

Would you believe that Claire used a needle punch pattern to make this sweet mat?   Shawn Williams is the designer of ‘Frosty Flakes’.  Claire took a green piece of Valdani thread and strung wee seed beads on for her illusion of lights!  Genius!

Here’s what it looks like as a needle punch…a totally different look!

Dang cute…but as Claire says, one hobby is enough for this lifetime!  Having said that…THIS IS stinking cute!  SEW…just in case YOU could use another hobby…or would like to make the wool applique version, you can find the pattern HERE!! :o)

It’s so nice to have talented, crafty friends!  They keep this ol’blog hopping!  I say, bring it on!  :o)

Have a terrific Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!  Happy Stitching!~P
