Four Seasons Swap

And the Season is Winter!!!.......... it was a bit hard to come up with a Winter theme when its sooooo hot down here, but after seeing Jeanne's gorgeous snowman quilt, i wanted to make a pieced snowman!!!.......except i didnt have a pattern.

So "Roman" the Snowman (his name is significant to where he is heading), just grew as i cut and pieced:

Ok, in my defense, i have never made a snowman, in my life (my one experience with snow wasnt that great!!!!).......his hat does look like it has built in earmuffs lol.... but im assured by Anne Ida that they r needed in the cold weather!!!!

I just hope that my cute and colourful snowman brightens up the day of my swap partner!!!

I also want to share a couple of my favorite Summer photos, so far (photography rapidly becoming my second favorite hobby). Firstly my DH stopped on the side of a busy highway just so i could snap pics of these:

There is just something about haystacks that i am attracted too!!! Look at those colours, greens and golds, my new favorite!!!

And this is a special shot:

How gorgeous is my son??? He was just looking out his sisters bedroom window, to say to me the words that every Mum wants to hear.................."Whats for dinner Mum???"


  1. What a cute snowman. You are very clever to make him without a pattern.

  2. I think that is a great snowman. You sure did a great job designing him. I imagine it would be hard to get in the Snowy spirit and it so warm there.

  3. What an adorable snowman, I love him. You son is the cutest thing, I never had a son, but I have a grandson and he is beautiful.

  4. Now he's adorable Rose, whoever the lucky lady is I'm sure she'll be thrilled with it, and what a gorgeous photo of your boy....

  5. Great Snowman for your 4 Seasons quilt - my son asks me that question a hundred times a day - I'm sure it's just his way of opening up a conversation - heaven knows why all he has to do is talk to me and I'll happily chat to him - strange creatures 12 year old boys!

  6. Heehee! You finishied him :o) And he is so cute! Well done! And the earwarmers will come in nicely *lol*

    That is a gorgeous pic of Cohen!

  7. Very cute snowman, and most stylish as well and a very lucky recipient.

    Your photos of the hay rolls made me smile. I love summer, but those rolls have always always made me think of the cereal shredded wheat. Great colors though!

    My sister spent 3 years in Australia and loved it there. At the time our 3 were babies, so a visit was unfortunately out of the question....some day, maybe.

    Enjoy your son....they grow up way too fast!

  8. I love your snowman! I actually thought that looked like a cowboy hat and the red part is his scarf around his neck. =)

    Your son *is* adorable!

  9. Hi, sweetie! I've given you a "You make my day" award :o) Have a look at my blog.

  10. Your snowman is cute! Wow, you did good without a pattern.

    Love the pic of the hay; makes me think of our pasture.

    Your little boy is precious.

    Thanks for sharing.

  11. And yet another quilt I would be very happy to receive! Although I have no clue about "roman"!
    Your DS´s photo is very nice.
    Take care.

  12. How cute is your snowman, I think for your first he looks exceptionally good looking, love his smile.

  13. that boy of yours sure is a cutie! I like your web site - very nice.
