Backyard beauty and SSCS....!

At last, we have had a snow day!



For a while there I thought Pam and Wendy were hogging all the snow. Have you seen how much they've received in the past few weeks? It should have all come our way! lol It is beautiful. I do enjoy the 4 (four) seasons.

As for the SSCS swap that Donna from Chookyblue organized.....

This is what I received from Sandra, my Secret Santa, who lives in Portugal. Isn't it all just beautiful?

I just love everything she sent. She made the bag using Portuguese fabrics and..... sent me a packet of fabric in various colours....

Oh... and those buttons.... so original!

There was some chocolates, but they're all gone. Yummy, yummy....!

Thank you again Sandra, the items are all lovely!

On the quilting front, I finished hand sewing the binding on the Fairy Garden quilt. Another UFO bites the dust! Today, my goal is to finish Blue Bird, which I hope to show you pictures tomorrow.

Until then.... have a great day! Thank you for stopping by!

That was a lovely swap from Sandra. I can imagine how thrilled you were to open that package.

Glad that you finally got your snow. It does look pretty.

You received such great gifts, wow, lucky you! I wish we would get just one nice snow this year. So far it's been hardly any but we've had ice and fog a few times.

Carol, only now I'm having some time for blog land and couldn't reply to your nice words before. I'm glad you enjoyed what I sent you, I had most pleasure doing it for you.
Oh, that snow... Wonderful!

Look at that beautiful snow! I am jealous, we had drifts of it and now it has warmed up unseasonably and melted the majority of it. :~(
