Everybody Loves A Parade- Well I hope so .

 Good morning, snow bunnies!!! Happy Monday! 

 Are you stitching winter or have you moved on to Valentine's and spring stitching? 

I am hip hopping back and forth between winter and Valentine's stitching . I thought it would be fun to look back at some of my freebies that I have shared that are winter themed. Many of these you have seen in the Christmas parade, but maybe there is one of two that you have not seen.

 If you are interested in learning more about the stitch or doodle, just click on the colored text and you will be transported back to the post where you can find the chart.  I hope you enjoy.

Some of these  stitches are Christmas ornaments, but they could be stitched for winter as well.

  5. You have so many fun snow stitcheries, Melisa! I still need to finish up the Frosties - all they need is a border and some quilting. But new projects call to me, too - like your January doodle. So cute!

    1. Oh thank you so much, Ginny. To be honest I struggle with finishing. I try to be as thrifty as possible and usually go back to the pillow finish for they are so easy to store in a small space. Have a very lovely evening. Hugs.
