Advent calendar & snowmen

With time running out i made myself get to the sewing machine & make my GD an Advent calendar. She's only little yet i know but i wanted her to have one since her brothers do too.

Next was to make some little snowmen
The reason for these is i was talking to my daughter about an idea i seen on Julie's blog about using snowmen in the pockets rather than lollies or toys to mark the days off until Christmas. She said she'd much rather the snowmen & i agreed.

Here is how one looks in the calendar
The grandies should have fun with this counting down to Christmas.

Today i need to finish adding the binding onto a quilt from yesterday(i didn't quite get it sewn down before bedtime),sew Miss C's Christmas stocking together & put together 4 ornaments. :).

Happy Stitching.

Your advent calendar is just beautiful Jeanette. My friend got me to make the snowman for her felt advent calendar & I too thought it was a great idea ... I may even "copy" it for my grandson as his parents would not want the pockets filled with sweets either.
