Snowman Frenzy!

We have had freezing rain the past few days. And since we didn't dare venture out on the icy roads.. we decided to make Snowmen! Wet snow is the only way to do this.

My oldest made one on his own...


Then our youngest made one with his Dad's help..

And after a quick snowball fight.. I retreated inside to make a Snowman of my own too!

My LQS (local quilt store) is offering the "Patch Abilities" monthly mini's kits this coming year. And, in a moment of weakness, I signed myself up.

They are super fun to make and quick!! And then once a month I can have a new one to hang on the table.

They also have the "Button packs" for each month because they typically have special buttons.. like this carrot nose. The kit includes the button pack, but you can also buy them separately.


I'm thinking about giving the patterns away when I'm done each month. But here is where I need your help.. should I give them away each month after I make them? Or wait until the end of 2011 and giveaway the whole set? Pin It

Giving them away each month will give more people a chance to win one, as none of the 5 shops in the 20 mile radius of me carry them.

Giving the patterns away would be awesome, definitely monthly - can't possibly wait until the end of the year! Happy New Year.

I might be in my own world here, but I think if I had one of those, I'd want the other 11, so I say all as one! I might have to think about signing up for that....ok I WANT to, now just see if I can afford to! OI!

That snowman is so cute! If you've been to my blog, you know that I love/collect snowmen! As for your possible give away, I would do it monthly so more people could have a chance to win.

So cute! I think monthly would be more fun.

The snowman is adorable. I agree, giving them away each month would give more people a chance to win.

Monthly

Sandy said...

I say give them away each month so the winner can do monthly also. If the winner was me, it would help me make all of them.

I just did my first mini quilt similar to this, only with a Santa instead of a Snowman. It was quick and easy.
I think it would be fun to have a chance to win one pattern each month.

I think monthly giveaways would be great (unless I would end up being the lucky winner of all 12!) Very cute pattern....

Have just started collecting snowmen, but sadly missed out on your giveaway this month, however, sure I can adapt from pictures seen, and seeing as I am all the way down under in NZ nobody is going to mind if I copy it and make something up of my own. So cute and look forward to seeing what next months will be about
