I just received a second valentine swap gift. As I said yesterday, Barbara was my swap mate, and her husband was very ill. Nancy stepped in and sent me a gift which I opened yesterday.
Today I opened this wonderful package from Barbara containing this Mrs. Fields chocolate, a very nice card with a nicely written message and the two items handmade I am showing you next.

This is a wonderfully stitched little pillow. Barbara, your stitching is so pretty. I really cannot thank you enough.

Barbara and her husband made a tree full of little snowmen. I am so lucky to receive one which can now be added to my snowman tree. What do you think, am I not one lucky person?
I forgot to add a picture of the cute little heart shaped buttons.

Well, this is all just wonderful. I love the stitched pillow! It will be fun to sit this out each February. I also know that your new snowbuddy will find his place among friends on your Christmas tree! Doesn't it make you want to have it be Christmas right now? :)

Love and hugs ~

Wow you really lucked in with such a generous swap partner. Beautiful work on the pillow and I'm sure the snow man will like his new home.

Take Care

Enjoy your new treasures.

Nancy, I'm so glad you received the package today. I'm also glad you like what I sent. I had the pillow kit (its a Pine Mountain kit) in my stash and did it over the weekend with you in mind. Hugs,

Wow Nancy,
What a lovely package from Barbara.
How thoughtful of her to send you this beautiful little pillow and lovely chocolates. And what a gorgeous little snowman. I remember when Barbara told us about making these. I'm sure it will take pride of place on your tree :>)
Warm hugs, Angela
