Snow days and a surprise gift



My Christmas ornaments are coming along - most of them are stitched so I need to put aside a day for finishing. I ❤ Snow Days (a Glory Bee freebie *here*) was a quick stitch and is now ready for finishing. The recipient's name is on the back - I wonder which little girl will get this to hang on her tree this year?




And a gift from dear Angela (no blog but who should have one to show off her perfect stitching and finishing). Angela was looking for coloured floss rings and I offered to send her some. She said she would send me some silver ones in exchange but, not only did she send the rings, she enclosed these 'extras' too - four delightful charms (she knows that I love keys) and two bundles of ribbons. She suggested that the white ribbons would come in very handy for a finish of Sew Winter - how right she is - such beautiful snowy white ribbon conjures up a winter finish! Thank you Angela for your kindness and generosity.

I also received another package - an early birthday gift - which I am saving to open on 'the day' - not too long to wait now. Where has the past year gone to?

Once the ornaments are finished, Sew Pink is the next design to be released, maybe next week? This will be followed fairly quickly by Sew in Love for those of you who are looking for something to stitch for that special Valentine.

I understand that there are some of you out there who would like to purchase my designs but are unable to do so because you do not have paypal. I am happy to accept either GB Pounds, US$ or Euros by snail mail but at your own risk. Please contact me for further details - my email address can be found on my profile.

A big thank you to all of you who have supported me in my venture into the designing world.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    I love Snow Days - just hope we don't get much. Okay I don't want any, snow that is! Angela is coming here tomorrow and she had better watch out because I am going to start a blog for her! She is so lovely and I wish you didn't live so far away that the three of us never meet up.
    Lots of Love

    This is one of my favorite Glory Bee freebies! Looks great on that blue fabric you are using!

    Looking forward to more of your designs Carol!

    CArol,
    Snow Days is so sweet, what a great expression on that snowman's face, It's a kind of smile that says - hmmm, I can smell more snow in the air...haha!

    The ribbons and charms look so pretty photographed against that icy cold blue background Carol. I'm glad you like them and know you will put them all to very gooD use :>) Can't wait to see how your finish Sew Winter.
    Hugs Angela
