Well, the snowman is done, and it didn't turn out perfect. I must admit it is adorable, however, I learned a lot during this process. I think I used the wrong thread to add the beads. I will work on that. And, ironing it after the beads were attached was a challenge.
I know what not to do next time.... just remains to be seen if I know what to do.
Thanks for going on this trip with me.
