CHRISTMAS SEW-ALONG PART 1

Here we go again with the Christmas Sew-Along.  I am working on a previously started project of snowmen faces.  The pattern I am using is "Let It Snow".  This is where the project was at the end of January.
Since then, the project has been in a basket.  I had forgotten that there was embroidered words to do, the wool noses needed hand stitching, and the eyes and mouths needed buttons and snaps attached..  I had planned on machine quilting the piece this weekend.  Instead, I started the embroidery yesterday.  The noses are stitched.  This is a picture of the progress made.
I have one of the longer sides to stitch the words and then the embroidery will be done.  I want to get the buttons and snaps added for the eyes and mouths so that they look more like a snowman's head.  The fabric I used is from the Fruitcake line.  It has a grunge look to it which I like.

I will be back later today to share progress.
