So, so cute and what an amazing job Nicky did .  I LOVE snowman anything and everything, and to have a cross stitched ornament from Nicky to add to my handmade ornament tree is wonderful.  Now there are two other packages to tempt me…one marked “Open Whenever”.  Ok, I am very weak!!!  My whenever lasted about 12 hours!!!!006  It contained a super cute tea towel from New Zealand and a wonderful assortment of Christmas ribbons.  I love the ribbons my packages were tied with, and now I have my very own !!!  Package number three marked “The Main Event” has been hidden away….I cannot be trusted.  Nicky thank you so much for my wonderful goodies and a HUGE thanks to Chookyblue for coordinating this fun international swap!!!
