Brown Eyed Susans and Snowmen?

Today was a vacation day for me so I slept in a bit, did a little cleaning, did a little laundry and even did a little sewing. First off though I want to show you a picture of my brown eyed susans...they're one of my favorite outdoor flowers and for some odd reason, they're the one of the only flowers that like growing in my yard. This is just a tiny batch of them...I have hundreds out back.
Then I thought I'd do some catch up sewing. I'm in a birthday block of the month with some gals on the internet. The July girl was asking for a very nice lily block BUT it had 6 set in seams. Well, I can't even get 1 right let alone 6 so I emailed her and she said to make a snowman block. No size or colorway so I just used what I had in my scrap bin and this is what she's getting....
I think he came out kinda cute, i'm just hoping Linda thinks so too.... I kinda made him up as I went along, using a pattern but then I had to alter him a bit to fit the background fabric that I'd already cut..oops.... LOL
I'm going to go outside and peek at my tomatoes and see if they're big enough to get a picure of....
be back later.

I think your snowman's right cute! I'm going to get mine together this weekend and hand sew him while we're on vacation.

The snowman makes me feel cooler, thankfully, on a hot and humid south Jersey day. He's very cute, and congratulations for making him up as you went.
The brown-eyed Susans I have that The Other Barb mentioned are growing in the same soil she has at her house across the street. I think the answer is I have more sun. Yours look great, Peg!
