Frosty Friends Exchange for Sylvie

Sylvie has received the SBEBB Frosty Friends Exchange that I stitched for her. I had obtained this adorable chart in a trade from Heather a few months ago, and when I signed up for this exchange I figured it would be a fun choice. I considered making it into a box top, but was concerned about how to package it to mail it to France, so I chose to make a pinkeep instead... This chart is now available for trade with anyone who is interested...

Secret Snowdrift Pinkeep

The Trilogy

32 ct Natural Belfast Linen, GAST and Weeks Dye Works Floss with JABC Buttons


And this is everything I sent to Sylvie. The Mirabilia charts were on her wishlist, and I was lucky to find an ebay seller who had both for a very reasonable price :-) Along with some snowman themed goodies and some yummy lip balm from Bath & Body Works to protect her lips in the winter cold, I also sent some little mice for Plume :-) Enjoy Sylvie!!

Now I am going to sneak off to do some secret stitching. Brrr...sure is cold here! I calculated the Fahrenheit to Celcius improperly yesterday, and nobody caught me! It was 4F (-15C) on my way to work this morning, and warmed up to a balmy 8F (-13C) on my way home this evening. We are thankful to have a January thaw approaching for the weekend and into next week! We need it here!

*brrrr* -15!!!! crikey!

It is currently about 37 or 38 C here and we are melting :)

I think I'd rather be cold - you can always get warm somehow in the cold - but it's hard to get cool - you can only take off so many clothes :)

Sylvie's pinkeep is goregous :)

What a lovely pinkeep, this is a cute design!

We have similar temperatures here at the moment, but not your snow! I really would love to have your snow here :) I don't love winter especially but I love to have lots of snow as that's normal here. But not this winter, hopefully it arrives someday later!
