stitchin' and stashin' (report #47) . . .

Since I didn't do *any* fabric/craft shopping this past week, I really didn't expect to have *anything* to report . . . but I had a happy little surprise from Barbara, at Cat Patches.  I won her Fun Fact Freebie Friday giveaway last week and this pretty little fat quarter found its way to my PO Box this week:
Isn't it perfect??  Christmas PLUS metallic PLUS purple!!!  ♥Love!♥ 

Used/donated this week: 1.5 yards
Used/donated year-to-date: 47.0 yards
Purchased/added this week: .25 yards
Purchased/added year-to-date: 172.75 yards
Net used/donated for 2012: -125.75 yards

Be sure to head over to Patchwork Times and check out what stash *enhancements* happened this past week!

I had a very productive, if quiet, day yesterday!  I got my sewing bunk room back in ship-shape order and I finished up my Snowman Wreath:
Isn't he darling?!  Although he rather blends into the white door, doesn't he?!  

I also worked a bit on my Holiday Lane Pillow for the blog hop.  My day is Tuesday!  Wanna a little peek?
I took the construction of my little pillow . . . outside the box, you might say.  I can't wait to share it with you!

I'll probably work on this little piece this afternoon for a bit . . . 
Poor thing.  It's been so long since I started this series, the trace marks are barely visible any more!  I may have to go over them again before I start my Slow Stitching Sunday afternoon!

Have a GREAT day!

That fabric is so you! Love it!
Perhaps some colored tulle can help a bit with the snowman. I'd avoid yellow, people might question that color with a snowman. LOL!

The snowman is adorable.
Your little stitchery looks very sweet--at least what I can see of it! : )
Lovely purple, glittery Christmas fabric. A perfect win for you!
