2006 Snowman Box

I was beginning to think that I wasn't going to find any finishing fabric for Ursula Michael's 2006 Snowman. I have been looking for a couple of weeks and I hadn't found anything that came close to looking good with the snowman. My waiting finally paid off this morning when I came across this beautiful fabric! The fabric has silver sparklies which goes perfect with the opalscent fabric I stitched the snowman on.



As you can tell I haven't done a lot of stitching today. I did start Allie's stocking this morning but I only put in about hour's worth of stitching before I decided to finish the box. I am planning on working on it later tonight after the kids go to sleep. I do have one more piece to finish but it is for an exchange so no picture of it for now.
The only thing bad about stitching for the holidays is it takes stitching time away from my larger projects. Every year I keep telling myself I won't wait till November to start my gift stitching and every year here I am stitching away on gifts because I didn't do it through out the year. Someday I will learn......but when?!

Love the fabric the box looks great. I have yet to learn the same lesson about Christmas and year end projects. Maybe we secretly love the rush.
