DUCJFC 2016 - February 25 - Frosty Friends #6 and a Guest Stitcher!

Today is the day! The last Frosty Friend. Again, they'll all look like this when complete:

And I only managed a little bit of the polar bear in the blue sweater here:

Because I decided to continue on a while with Snow Guide:

Also, I'd like to share my Mom's cross stitch with you. She has some background in sewing from high school, etc., but this is her first ever cross stitch design. She decided to jump in with both feet and start this beast:

She did wait until I was home to help her start off back in November 2015 and it was here:

Don't you love her pink Qsnaps? Courtesy of our visit to Thread & Eye in London, Ontario. 

Now she's here!!!

She's survived confetti, dithering, all kinds of annoyances and she's about 2/3 done. She's even a little farther along since I took this photo a couple days ago. The only tip I had to give her was to anchor the thread behind some stitches when she had to go farther than a centimetre or so. I don't think she'll have pulled her fabric out of shape since she's using Qsnaps, at least I hope not. 

Also, I'm pretty sure her stitches are neater than mine... annoying kind of, but I'm glad she's enjoying it and I hope  she continues on with it. 

Happy Stitching!



  1. Isn't it lovely when you have a family member who can cross stitch,specially your mom!I agree her work is very neat.

  2. Lovely stitching by your mom:) I hope your DD will soon catch the stitching bug as well.

  3. Ooh, another Frosty Friend! I'm sad that it's your last FF start but can now look forward to watching you stitch them (hint hint). Great stitching by your mum too. It's so nice when families can share a hobby. :)

  4. Another wonderful start on an adorable project!
    Your mom's work is lovely, too.

  5. How neat your mom is stitching. Beautiful too! Tell her strangers are wishing her good luck haha. Love her pink cover. Very nice. Great progress on your Snow Guide. Still love the fabric color.

  6. Cute start and great progress on Snow Guide Tiffany. Your mom is doing a fantastic job with her stitching.


  7. I have a new song..."do you wanna build a nowman"! LOVE IT! Congrats to your mother too, but your stitches are VERY clean as well!

  8. I love your Frosty Friends Series. They are so cute.

  9. Great start, love your work on Snow Guide and your mom's stitching is lovely. How fun!

  10. Your mum's stitching looks great! I wouldn't call that a mini kit however. Was it in a really small bag?!
    Your stitching is also lovely, I'm so tempted by the Frosty Friends still!

  11. Glad to see you've started all the FF. Your mom's stitching is lovely and she's made excellent progress.

  12. Great work in the final FF.
    Your mum's stitching is looking good too. What a coincidence that I've just shown an Eilean Donan castle stitch too!

  13. Great start again on the Frosted Friends!
    Your mum's work looks lovely & impressive
