Tattered Snowman Heart, Done!

It's only Tuesday but my week was off to a fast start. The first two days back to work, back to Homeschool, back home and back to this ridiculous cold...well, it's taking some adjusting. If I sit still I'm afraid I will not get up again. I will go into hibernation mode. I'm really trying to stay the course, get the job done, make it to Spring... somehow!
In my quest to stay motivated and creative, I found a happy medium between a Winter project and a Sweetheart project. I made this wonderful Tattered Heart Snowman pillow. I used only hand dyed woolens, along with hand dyed threads and even hand dyed buttons. AND... I did all the applique by hand. I used weighed pollypellets and polyfil to give it a little weight and keep the "puffiness" down. It's so cute, and it's a really nice size too. It's 8" x 11" I'm still deciding whether or not to add a hanging cord...HMMM. Mulling it over, if you know what I mean.
Hope you're staying warm and keeping busy...there's still time to start something fun , you can do it! B=)
Update: This pattern has sold out! Sorry.

I like how yours came out, much more prim looking with the wools you used.
