Snowbuddies Block of the Month Embroidery Pattern

Welcome! To the first post of our Blogspot!  I will be sharing on my Blogspot – “Wooly Moments” and my granddaughter Savannah will be sharing on “Mini Moments”.  We jointly will be writing about what is going on in our lives, new ideas, new pattern designs, recipes and anything that we think is news worthy from our perspective as Grandmother (Tee Tee) and Granddaughter (Savannah).  I hope you will check out The Little Wool Shoppe website at www.thelittlewoolshoppe.com

Today, we are introducing our brand new, designed just for our Bloggers – “Snowbuddies” embroidery patterns.  This design will have 12 individual blocks, one for each month.   

We suggest that these patterns be traced with a red or brown pigma pen onto an 8” X 8” white cotton background square. (3/4 yd White for 12 blocks)   Simply place the pattern on your light box, center the fabric square over it and trace lightly.  A sunny window works well, too! Our block is Backstitched in one strand of 12 wt. Sulky Embroidery thread – color #1169.

Talk about Coloring Outside of the Lines….lots of options…..You could enlarge or shrink the pattern design after printing it off.  You can stitch in whatever color thread you like, or use a variety of colors.  Talk about color….you can shade with crayons after your embroidery is complete.  At the end of one year, you will have 12 blocks to put together into a fun “Snowperson” wall quilt.   I will have finishing instructions with the last block – May 2013.   Need help? Finding fabric, thread and pens….let us know at 970-686-6346, we can ship to you.

For Anyone that Subscribes to this Blog or leaves a comment….We will have a drawing on May 15 for 3/4 yd White Fabric, 1 Spool of Sulky Thread and 1 pigma pen.  Winner will be posted.  Good Luck!

”Mini Moments” by Savannah –
I love to dance!  I have been dancing for 7 years.  I am on a performance dance team called – “Dawning Light.”  We are 10 – 12 years old.  I am the youngest and smallest.  My Tee Tee tells me that I have big talent.  We dance to Christian music and I am able to interpret the dance through the words of the song.  I practice on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  A week ago I danced during our church services to a song called “Our God is Greater”.  It was really fun. 

My favorite bible verse is – I can do all things through Christ who brings me strength. 
Phillipines 4:13.

I hope you will share this with other girls or daughters or granddaughters.  I would love to hear from them.  I will be sharing special things with them and writing in every post.  Next time I will share my recipe for Banana Crème Pie.

  23. I love these blocks. I subscribe to your blog and I get your newsletter. I was wondering if there is a method for making the outer rings in needle turn appliqué?
