Snow Storm Flew to Alaska

A small snow storm that was very localized (my house) recently took flight and landed in Alaska, again very localized (at the home of S., my quilt partner of the month).

Here's a picture of the storm aftermath:

The children who live in that blue house made a snowman!

This is the doll quilt that I made as a member of the Doll Quilt Swap group. This is my first month as a member. Our theme was Snow. I couldn't post this picture until my partner received it, and I just heard word that the little snow storm arrived at her house today.

The 3-D snowman was not part of the original plan, but when it turned out to have such a big, white front yard, this house was just begging for a snowman. He is sewn on; he's not actually a "doll" that is to be played with.

I hope Snowman has found a happy home in Alaska. I hear it's a good place for snow-people to hang out.

I love the 3-D snowman. He's the perfect addition to the little quilt.

It's a wonderful wintery quilt! Makes me feel cold just looking at it!
