Frosty Greeting

He's done and now I can get on with other things.

I don't particularly enjoy doing plastic canvas work, but this fellow was so darn cute I just had to make him.

My original intent was to place Frosty on our front door, on the outside, between the main door and the storm door. His slim profile works better in that narrow space than a wreath does. BUT, after all that work I want to be able to see him! We enter our home through a side door so, really, the INSIDE of the front door is seen a whole lot more --- and that is where Frosty will be grinning his greeting for now.

What a super-looking decoration. I haven't even got any indoor stuff out of storage yet.

He sure turned out beautifully. It's always great to get a long time UFO done.

I usually decorate on the first of December Gillian. I was actually several days late this year.

It's a relief to be finished this one Uli, I have a number of projects backed up, several with looming deadlines.

I hope you're able to get the decorating done as planned Minnie. Decorating can be a lot of work so it's nice to have some time to enjoy it before it has to come back down again.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to comment. It really makes blogging fun.

Looks great! I feel inspired to make something not knitting. Maybe after christmas I'll get something (hopefully on sale) for next year.

Mary Maxim puts many of their Christmas items on sale right after Christmas. I purchased the kit for Frosty and also the kits for three felt applique stockings last year. I believe they were 40 - 50% off.

Well, ahem, being Scottish I naturally think that we know how to make shortbread, and I've never even heard of berry sugar or cornstarch... I use plain flour, caster sugar and butter. (Two countries divided by a common language...) And I usually use a knife to cut the shortbread into fingers. Biscuit cutters - hmm, a bit civilised. With you on the fork-pricking, though, and have to admit that yours looks very good, though!
