The "snowballs" you see here came in my mail yesterday. They are from a lovely lady and wonderful friend, Nancy, who lives in South Carolina. I've never met Nancy in person, but she is a very caring, loving person. She is also a cross stitcher and does beautiful work and she likes to dabble in other crafts and the "snowballs" above is one of those crafts. They are actually "rag balls" and very beautiful. I have them in this carnival glass dish that was a favorite of my MIL's and they compliment my "snowman" tree very well. Thank you so much Nancy. These will be treasured forever.

Here you see my snowman tree! Wayne and I made most of the snowmen on it. My DH has a talent for drawing and painting and is very good with small items, like snowmen noses! He drew out the patterns and I sewed and stuffed them, made scraves, sewed on buttons and made hats for some of them. It was a fun project. Next month, February, will be Valentines.
