To celebrate this new found joy of the month, I've decked out my blog layout in an appropriately "wintry" theme, though:
- I know it's still Autumn for 20 more days.
- I live in the Bay Area. The last time it snowed here was 2005. And that was a freak occurrence.
I think I was partially inspired by one of the latest stitching projects I completed, this cute little snowman from a free Annie Oakleaves pattern.
I'm seriously hooked to her patterns, they're so simple and so sweet, I can't help but feel cheerful whenever I work on one. You can download this pattern from her Flickr.
I've already bought a matching fabric to make a little wall hanging with him, so hopefully I'll have pictures to share soon!
Another reason I love the snowman is that it reminds me of one of my favorite B-movies Cannibal! The Musical, which was Trey Parker and Matt Stone's first film, pre-South Park. It's hilarious, sufficiently gory, and filled with ridiculous musical numbers such as "Let's Build a Snowman!" A warning, Not work or kid-safe, as there is language and a bit of gore at the end. But then again, what holiday video would be complete without it?
