What's on the line?

Snowmen, of course!!! After this weekends big snowstorm one could build a lot of real snowmen but I like mine made in fabric!
This little quilt is the first quilt in the twelve month series that I designed in 2000. It was the most popular of all the quilt designs in that series. Inspiration for the design came from my friend, Marcy, who had a flute quartet, hence the four snowmen. I'm sure these guys are listening to the wind whistle "Winter Wonderland". In fact, I think the snowman on the right is singing to that cardinal in his hand. LOL! Look at all those green leaves in the woods behind that quilt! There are no green leaves on any tree right now.......proof is here in this photo.......

That's my husband, Steve, using the snowblower to carve a path in the snow for Kaiser, our beagle. It took him a long time to snowblow the driveway and work through the snowdrifts. There is no getting out to the backyard to the clothesline where I like to hang my quilts. At the rate this winter is going it will be a long time before I am able to get out to the clothesline I have strung between the trees!
Have a good Monday everyone! I'm just enjoying Christmasy things. And here's a little Christmasy secret.........if you come back tomorrow, I'm going to do a little giveaway. :-)

This post is appearing late today, because I goofed when I preset the time for it. Once I learned how to preset posts I thought it was so cool that I use it all the time now. However, need to remind myself to check the AM/PM as I set this one for 4:00 PM instead of AM! Oops!

Very cute snowman quilt! I love snowmen! That's a lot of snow you have there! We have had about two flakes this season so far, but I have a feeling we'll be getting our share soon enough.
