Swap received and a Spring blizzard

Remember all the lovely Christmas ornaments I received in January? This month it was my turn to send to Lisa. I really enjoyed stitching for her! I'm so happy you liked it, Lisa! I've stitched this ornament once before but in green...and Glenna is now the owner of that one. I like this design so much, I'll probably stitch it again!


Thank you all for the sweet comments on my stashy post. I'm still giddy over all that floss! Yes, my friends, feel free to steal that picture for your desktop background, I'm happy to share. For those of you asking about how I store my floss click here to see my previous posts on that subject. You will need to scroll down a bit on that page. I seem to talk about stash a lot!

Yesterday (the last day of Winter) the weather was 70 degrees and gorgeous. Today (the first day of Spring) it is 30 with blizzard snow. UGH! I am SO SICK of snow.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

That is a really cute design and as usual your finishing is great.

Nancy said...

I love the Fa La La ornament you stitched! You did a beautiful job.

My goodness what a drastic change in the weather in only one day! Mother Nature seems very confused.

Colorado Stitcher said...

Love the ornament and sorry, but I think you have the storm we got Thur/Fri. Warm and sunny Thur then SNOW and cold Friday! Good news is today it was sunny and lower 40s, so I hope that comes your way for tomorrow!

Colorado Stitcher said...

OOPS! I forgot to add that the snowman fabric the ornament is on (and I guess used for the backing?) is really neat too. Thanks for sharing.

Angela said...

Such a lovely ornie, this is one of my favorite Snowmen too :) Our weather is almost identical as it's been a very lovely 18 degrees celcius all week and today it's 4 degrees celcius! I was enjoying Spring! LOL.

Theresa said...

It was like the middle of summer here yesterday with high temps and glorious sun, but today it's chilly and very overcast. Oh well, at least one day of it was great to have!

Jackie said...

Gorgeous! Is the fabric in the photo what you backed it with? The tea dyed linen is wonderful!

Lisa said...

Your ornament came out beautiful! I need to get my act together and get mine finished and in the mail.

At least the snow shouldn't stick around this time of year. It's got to start getting nice soon. It's just got to!

So sorry about the snow!! Surely that will be the end of it!

You do know how to spend a day off work, I don't think I've ever seen a Michael's receipt that long!

Deb said...

I can only imagine how sick of snow you are. It's really been an awful year in some parts of the country. Hopefully it will warm up soon and that will be the last of it.

I just love your Fa La La piece. I'll bet that Lisa just loved it!!!
