Surprise in the Post

Here is my Jack Russell Penny enjoying the snow she loves to catch snowballs and eat them, this snow fall appears to have brought the UK to a stand  still I didn't have the luxuary of staying of work, I work for the NHS and I was expected to be at work as babies do not delivery themselves!! well they do if they are in a hurry!!!

I received a lovely surprise in the post today it was my exchange from The Year Long Prairie Schooler Exchange from Marie, it was very appropriate since we have had so much snow in the last few days it was a Prairie Schooler Snowman entitled Christmas Trees II from Book 87. It is beautifully stitched and finished. I have been working on my exchange piece  so hopefully that will be finished by the end of the week.
