Afghans

Snowmen Afghan

I stitched up this afghan quite some time ago and finally took a photo so that I can share it with you.

It is Stoney Creek’s Snowmen of the month afghan.  When I stitched this ( and it took me a long time) it was offered in their magazine each month or every other month.  I can’t remember.  But I think that you can now  purchase a book of all of these adorable snowmen.  The afghan started out as a piece of sparkly fabric and I had to block off and stitch in the silver thread separating each block.  But it was well worth it as I love this afghan.  I don’t use it much.  It sits on the back of my rocking chair. Occasionally I will throw it over my lap if I get chilled.  What about you?  Have you stitched up any afghans and do you use them?  Here is my favorite block on this afghan:

I love the witchy snowman and that penguin disguised as a tiger is too stinking cute!  Here is the November block since it is reminding me that I need to get my leaves raked up. Hehe.

I think I like patterns that I get to keep adding to each month (or when I can).  Like on an afghan.  I have made quite a few afghans in my time, but this one and one other (I will share that one tomorrow) are the only 2 that I own now.  I hope to add more afghan’s in the future.  Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I have been up to.

  1. Ginny, I love this! I’ve never stitched an afghan but have several stunning patterns. I just need to bite the bullet and buy the fabric…after seeing yours, I might have to bite the bullet sooner than later too. Great job!!!

    1. Thanks, Sue. I love making afghans. You can put lots of designs you love into one piece. I have several afghans in my stash with lots of ideas. Just need the time to get going on them.

  3. This is amazing Ginny!! I’ve never done an afghan because I’m not really sure how to. Do you buy all the fabric then stitch it up and attach the pieces with different fabric or is it just one big piece with a whole bunch of little squares you can stitch? You can tell I’m still new to this. 🙂

  4. @ K. Marie; Thank you. In this case, it was one big piece of fabric that I stitched a silver ribbon thread every so many stitches to create the blocks. You can also purchase Afghan pieces that have blocks for stitching in. There are so many different kinds of afghan fabrics with different thread counts, different sized stitching blocks and the number of blocks on the afghans varies with each one. Really fun to work on. And it is a “legitimate” on-going piece. :o)
