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.
