Primitive ornaments SAL - Let It Snow

I am excited to share the second Primitive Pillow ornament with you...


I decided to use Let It Snow this month only to find we have possible snow flurries in the forecast for today. I also know it is still snowing in places like Scandinavia, America and Canada. So celebrate that snowy blanket by stitching up this ornament today.


I will be using beads on a couple of these ornaments but although I considered enhancing the sides of this design with little while beads, I decided I wanted them to all stay very simple and primitive looking. There are a couple of the designs where the beads are necessary. Please feel free to add beads to your Let It Snow if you would like. There are also little snowflake buttons available which would also look cute.

I am using two fabrics that match to back my own ornaments but you could choose to use scraps making each pillow unique.

If you missed the first ornament and would still like to stitch them all, you can find the first one here. I am going to look forward to receiving more photos of finished ornaments in the coming weeks.

Here is a photo of the beautiful version of Believe by Barbara. She has made primitive go elegant. I love her twisted fabric hanger.

Heidi, you needn't go to Skandinavia or Canada to see it snow. We were having new snow every morning during the last week. Today it was the first time without new snow, just the old one, lol.
The ornament is so lovely and goes so well with the other one. I also love the way you finished it. Great!

Well, this on is just too cute. I know Barbara will like this one and she has been (not patiently) waiting for it. LOL.
I haven't done these, I am too busy with my Indian. I do think they are really cute. Good job on designing.
Love you, Mom

These are so sweet!
No snow here today - sunshine and crisp air, so we're off to the beach for a nice long walk with wee Declan (he had a sleepover last night!)

Joanne said...

Oh, I LOVE this one, Heidi! (You probably knew I'd say that, hehe.) I only wish we'd get some snow here, but it's looking like spring already.
Hugs, Joanne
