Christmas Table Runner

I decided that I need a Christmas table runner. In my tiny fabric stash I found 2 fabrics that will look good together.  One of the fabrics has a snowman on it.  I decided to embroider a snowman on muslin and design the runner around them.

I cut 6 inch squares from the muslin. 
The snowman fabric was designed by Debbie Mumm. 
 I googled snowmen by Debbie Mumm and found one that looked like that fabric. 
Then I enlarged the snowman until I got it the correct size for the square.

I have 3 snowmen squares finished.
Also shown the fabrics and the snowman design.

What's been going on?

I have been busy cross stitching like crazy.....finally when I wanted to post something we had a computer problem.  The computer was in the shop for a week with a memory chip failure.  Not my fault, yay!! 

This is what I have been doing...

 I finished this one and took it to a cross stitch shop called Spring Robin in Salisbury to get framed.  That took a month.  So glad to see it framed.  I think we picked the perfect frame for the subject matter!

 I made 3 of these pumpkins.  I finished one and sent it to my mom for Halloween.  I was going to finish off the other 2 for Sophia to give to her friends but she thought it was lame!  oh well!!

I made this pirate sock monkey for Sophia.  She wanted it framed.  I think it is very cute.  I made another one and finished it off as an ornament and sent it to a friend.  I hope she received it by now!
