Frosty Friends Exchange from Joanie

I received such a lovely and unique Frosty Friends Exchange from Joanie today :-) What a talented artist Joanie is - take a look!
Joanie painted this box with a sweet snowman looking through a window on top... and the same little snowman is stitched over one on a blue wooden block... with three other blocks painted to spell out the word SNOW. Now, how cute is that? I just adore them! And she sent awesome goodies too! Sweet holly leaf votive cups, bath salts (I love bath products), a magnetic snowman shopping list pad, and a bag of chocolates. Thank you so much Joanie - I am so proud to own these blocks!

And, for me tonight, more stitching of the night sky... almost done!

Stitched on today: Started Winter Quaker Exchange, and Houses of Hawk Run Hollow **Sent off Winter House Exchange today
