Winter House Exchange from Marie

I received the most beautiful SBEBB Winter House Exchange from Marie today. I was so happy to see her return address on the package ;-)

I received such generous goodies - a cute JBW chart, pretty snowflake fabric, NN floss, needle threader, and snowman buttons... and she stitched me this amazing scissor keeper that has a pouch on back... and thread rings on the bottom... see photo below...

Isn't that neat?? Thanks so much Marie, I just love it.

A quiet night here... I finally started Lauren's Neighborhood Round Robin tonight. The fabric is powder blue - you cannot see that in the photo. Her theme is a winter neighborhood, and I am adding various elements for Christmas Day by The Prairie Schooler. I should have this done in another day or two - after I dig out some more DMC 642 and 367, that is!

Stitched on today: Started Lauren's Neighborhood Round Robin **Mailed out my Scissor Fob Exchange today
