It's my day!! 12 Days of Christmas in July-pattern release

Welcome to my day on the 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop  Are you having fun hopping to all the other participants blogs?  There is much to see and this is only the second day of the hop!!  And don't forget Sarah is posting steps for the QAL each day.  This is my second year of participating in the hop, I love doing it!

Meet The Snow Dudes!  I am releasing this brand new pattern in my Craftsy store which you can find HERE. Snowmen are a real love for me, having made many over the years.  They are so fun to decorate with for the Holidays since you can leave them up for a few months as they double as winter decor also!  


Wouldn't you love to have these cuties adorning your table during the Holidays.  It measures 19 1/2" by 41 1/2".  They are easy to make with quilting cottons and felt that you could whip up a few as gifts also.  




This is another one I made last year using a different snowflake.  I love using a medium grey as a background for my snowman projects as it sets off the white snowmen so well.   A wonderful blue or red would work too!


Remember yesterday I mentioned a give away also. You can read all the details on Sarah's blog. When you are commenting remember that if you are a no reply blogger to leave your email addy so you can be contacted if you win!  This is open to international bloggers also! 

                                                       The other blogs on today's hop are:

  1. I love snowmen and this is surly another winner Vicki. So cute, and I never think of using a grey background on a Chryproject but it does work great with the white. Love it.

  6. wow! What a fun table runner! I might make it in non-Christmassy fabrics to use in winter here (which is still short sleeve weather! hahha) as CHristmas in the subtropics would have melted snowmen!

  101. What a great pattern, very classic! I was just remembering how much my mom loved snowmen as a wintry motif, which is probably why I like to decorate with them so much. I'll be putting your pattern on my shopping list because you're right, I could definitely use that table runner all winter long.

  104. Wow...I had to scroll WAYYY down through tons of nice compliments before I could say "YAY YOU!!" Such darling ideas & so beautifully done!
    Not only does that beautiful grey background allow the white to shine but it also gives enough contrast for the black hats to show up nicely. Smart!!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I have a large snowman collection and I do leave them out all winter. Like the gray background on your runners. Sort of like a stormy winter night sky.

  122. I love snowmen. When I was a child, a snowman was always in order to be made. Now we don't usually get enough snow. That's the problem with moving. The great thing is we can have a snowman or more than one with a tablerunner or a quilt. I adore the pattern. You have hit the jackpot with this pattern. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Vicki!

    ReplyDelete
  123. I have always wondered to make a directional pattern work on a table runner. What a great idea you had on yours. It can be viewed perfectly from both sides.
