Snow day? Sew day! 8 projects for winter’s final weeks

Snowmen Are Cool Mug MatsHow’s winter been treating you?

For some it’s been a season similar to winters before . . . but we’ve watched others endure frigid temperatures, mountains of snow, and a chilly case of the winter blues. For those going through it, we send you our warmest wishes—and we want to help you send those winter blahs packing!

It’s 60 days until winter’s officially done (we know, it sounds like an eternity). Until that first day of spring arrives, why not immerse yourself in some snow-inspired stitching? The projects below will warm your hands and your heart. Before you know it, you’ll have a family of little snowmen to help you bid winter farewell—and to help you welcome the winter to come!

You can never have too many pincushions:
