Almost Christmas

I'm just sitting here at the computer stitching, listening to Christmas music and enjoying all my Christmas decorations and lights. Even without the little ones close I am really beginning to feel the joy of the season. No Bah-Humbug for me this year!

My ILCS yahoo group has again had a Holiday card exchange, my favorite of the year. I have received so many wonderful card, some with little gifts of floss or ornaments, even a frog or two. Today's mail brought this very special card from Gail A. (sorry the pic is a bit blurry). The Snowman is a wooden ornament and so cute. It will have a special place on my lil seasonal tree in January.


As you can see I have received many card and love each and every one of them. I use to put them on the door but since they tended to fall off this year I did something a little different. I put up a piece of snowman wrapping paper to attach the cards to and it's working great. Now the cards are next to the trees and I can enjoy both together.
I'm still stitching on the Christmas Biscornu but took a little break to do another Snowman ornie.....


"Gingerman Snow Charmer" by Mill Hill
I just love this little guy. This is one of a series of Snow Charmers and I know I will be doing at least 3 more of them.
I hope those of you who are getting snow and winter weather are keeping warm and safe. For everyone I hope you are having a stress free Holiday season.
Until Next Time....Have a Great weekend with some stitching time.

Both snowmen are cute! Your card idea seems to be working out great and a nice way to display them! We got about 3" today, so we might have a white Christmas if it doesn't warm up!

That's a great idea for your cards, Rene. At first I thought it was a bulletin board. Your snowman orie is really cute!
