Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Recently I saw this darling pillow over at Sweet P Quilting (made by Paulette):
P1210250

Is he not the cutest thing?  I thought I'd try my hand at making one so this is what I came up with:


I used flannel for the snowman and the borders, and pom pom trim to resemble snowballs.  I'm in love all over again!  I'm going to make a few more for gifts - they're really easy and fast too.  Don't you love the ideas you get from blogging friends?  I do!

I love this! Do you mind if I use your idea? I have heard imitation is the greatest form of flattery! I have some white chenille that I can use for the snowman. Actually, the only thing I will need to buy is the pompoms. Yours is adorable!
