Very important message for SBEBB participants!: The board is staying intact and as you have always known it!! Becky has given Cathy B., Vonna and I the role of running the exchanges. We will use the same board. I believe there is even an exchange opening up tonight on the board for early spring... If you are not in SBEBB, feel free to join Hooked on Exchanging for now. We will get all of this running pretty much instantly! Thank you Becky!
I heard today that Heidi has received the PIF that I stitched up for her while I was on Christmas vacation. I wasn't able to get it together in time for Christmas for her, but I sure hope she will be able to use it next year... Heidi has little girls, and I recall a specific entry from her blog last winter in which she wrote about how excited her girls were to see a snowfall in Germany - they went right outside to play. This wee snowman made me think of them, and I hope they will enjoy it on their tree.
And tonight... a bit of A Quaker Christmas - I just love this one. The Balsam Fir Crescent Colours floss is sooooo nice!
And, with Christmas officially over, it was time to take down the tree. Mike took this photo with his iPhone yesterday after he had taken it down. This is my upstairs foyer between the bedrooms of our house. Our tree sits here every year and sparkles so pretty through the front window. Mike had not watered the tree for the past week, and totally paid the price with how many needles he had to clean up after the tree left! Lily is sitting right in the middle of the mess, and I see Beau ascending the stairs to check it all out too - apparently, Mike says, they were not much help with the clean up :-) The photo is a bit blurry. The iPhone does not take very crisp photos :-(
Stitched on today: Stitched on Winter Quaker exchange, and A Quaker Christmas
