Perfect weather for a Snowman and an exchange

Hello everyone,
I hope everyone had a nice Christmas.

Does anyone want some snow? It started to snow last night and by mid-day this is what we saw. DH figures we have about 10-12 inches of new snow. At least DH managed to get us cleared out for the 2nd time today before the tractor died. The battery is good as all the lights are on... but no engine.

The little birds have been feasting on their seed wreath. And they have been flying from the maple and birch tree to the feeders.


A flock of six turkeys came to visit and eat up everything the birds have dropped under our feeders... they weren't to happy walking through the snow....


Once the food was gone, they headed for the protection of the large cedar trees.

Perfect weather to build a snowman, but I don't think they agree.

Speaking of snowmen, I received a lovely exchange from Lori  for our Stitched With Love Christmas Exchange.She made me the beautiful JBW Designs snowman pillow. Such beautiful stitching and finishing.


Lori spoiled me so much. She included some floss, beads, ribbons, chart, candle, tissues, a magnet, a pincushion, and a lovely patriotic Statue of Liberty ornament.  

My partner Renee mentioned that she liked winter houses and stockings, so I stitched up the Snowy Eve stocking © Blackbird Designs 2009 from the Merry December booklet.  Fabric: 28 ct Milk Chocolate,  Threads: CC, GAST, and WDW, and DMC.  Stitch Count 46 x 79, 2 over 2


Here is the complete package I sent to Renee.

You can check out all the lovely finished at the gallery here.

Have a wonderful day!
