All Flakes Welcome - #P- 104
Yes, another snowman pattern. I love winter and snow and cold temperatures and snow people of all sorts. These folks seem a generally happy group; perhaps that's why they were such fun to stitch. They have all my favorite things; lots of different fabrics, applique, embellishments, blocks of different sizes and shapes and things that refuse to be confined to their sashing or border(check out the trees). This pattern also works well as a block of the month. Enjoy!

Gentle as Peach Blossoms - #P- 110
Every year on March 3rd, the Japanese honor their small daughters with the Peach Blossom Festival -- so named perhaps because in past decades and centuries, those little girls were encouraged to be peaceful and gentle as peach blossoms.
