Just had to show you this

Hello everyone and thank you for popping by at this very busy time. 

First of all I'd like to wish you all a very

Merry Christmas

and I would love to show you this snowman that my 93 year old Dad made.

Dad is one of these people who cannot bear to be idle so has to have things to do and one of his latest hobbies is making knitted toys. He's made about 13 snowmen as well as santas and angels to give as little christmas gifts this year. 

Little does he know but I've put a Decopatch kit in his stocking so maybe another new hobby for him.

I'd like to enter this in a couple of challenges on his behalf ~

I'd really love it if you could take the time to leave a comment so that I can read them all to him as I know it would make his day.

Hi Andrea

I haven't had time to comment on any other snippets makes today, but just had to hop over to say how fabulous your Dad's snowman is! He's absolutely terrific and for me truly is the star of the Playground, along with your Dad :)

Hugs, to you and your Dad - hope you all have a fabulous Christmas!

What a delightful snowman, bet the recipients loved them. I tried decoupach last year and it is addictive..( I made 2 jugs with a little pansy as a birthday present)
Hope you both had a happy Christmas

Hi Andrea, saw this really cute snowman at Pixie's and I had to pop over and take a closer look - he is really really cute! I think it's lovely that you have a dad who crafts - a wonderful thing indeed! I hope he liked his new kit too xx
BTW we're on the same DT!

How great is your Dad! That is so beautifully made. I would like to think that I could do that at 93. Hope he likes the decopatch.
