Free Friday: Cheery Snowman Stitch-along #1



Happy Friday, everyone!  And can you believe that it's the Friday before Thanksgiving!?  That's totally bonkers!  It feels too soon to be turkey time!  But the calendar doesn't lie, so I got my turkey out to thaw and I've started getting my to-do list made up.  Phew.  I don't host Thanksgiving (thank goodness!), but I do a lot of cooking.  What do all of you fellow Americans have planned?

Enough chit chat, lets get to the pattern!  In case you missed it, I announced last week that we would be doing a Christmasy plastic canvas stitch along!  It will be a pattern given out in four parts, one a week for four weeks.  All of the required materials for the entire project are posted on that announcement page I linked to, so if you want to join us, click on that to see what you'll need to finish the entire project.  If you can't get started right away, I'll post the pattern in its entirety at the end of the stitch-along so that you can do it at your leisure!

Week #2: Hat and carrot
