Seven brides....


for seven brothers.   Well....six really.   That is
all I could think about while finishing my
Snow Belles since I knew they would soon be
introduced to my Fat Men.
 
Here they are all dressed up and ready to go.


I did have some issues with the finishing.   I
decided to use another Aleene's Fabric Fusion
fabric glue to attach the ric rac and that did not
go well.   I stopped in the middle of the first
pillow and promptly made a trip to Joann's
to buy some trusty Fabric-Tac.  
Lesson learned... I will not stray again.

Welcome to the Fat Farm....


The above basket was tight quarters for the
whole "fat" bunch so we moved up to
slightly larger accommodations.  I know Lizzie
Kate did not want to refer to the ladies as "fat"
but I just love my fat little friends and I
don't think they mind a bit.

I had a good finishing weekend.   I finished up
a Winter exchange and it turned out so cute.  
Wish I could show you but I will just have t
o wait until it makes it to its new home.    I
am off now to attempt my first mattress
pincushion finish.   I have everything stitched 
and hope to get it put together tonight.   Please
keep your fingers crossed for me that I
don't mess this one up.
 
Thanks for visiting and happy stitching....

  18. 7 Brides for 7 Brothers is one of my favorite movies.
    I even saw Howard Keel and Jane Powell in Indianapolis doing the play at the Starlight Musicals year ago. Hate to think how many!!

    Your little fat girls are perfect for the little fat boys. I think this is the first time I have seen the entire set individually finished. Just adorable!

  35. Karen,
    I adore your snowmen. The cutest ever. Love your blog. i have been following for some time now and one of my goals for 2013 is to comment more on blogs instead of just reading. We'll see how that goes because there never seems to be enough time. I moved my blog over to wordpress. It is http://stitchorizeit.wordpress.com.
    Have a great week!
