Snowman fob & b-day goodies!

The third and the last snowman i think. Isn't it a cutie! Again, found this one while surfing some of the blogs. It is a freebie at Sylvia's blog. Actually, i wasn't planning to stitch this one so soon but when it started snowing last saturday and i made a mistake with a Valentine freebie i was working which needed some frogging i set it aside and picked the snowman instead.
***you can click on all pictures to enlarge, if you want***
See these wonderful goodies? I know Julianne sent something for my birthday as she had mentioned it earlier but i didn't know these lots. I was really speechless when i opened it yesterday. I feel somewhat guilty because Julianne had asked a few ideas of what i would like knowing it's difficult to get stitch goodies around here so i mentioned some, now she almost bought all i've mentioned. Thank you ever so much, Julianne. You are so generous! Hope you get my message yesterday.
I am so excited with the charts i've started one early this evening, i don't have any of the given GA shaker threads on the chart so i just picked what come close to the picture of the design.

I would like to say a big THANK YOU to all who come and visit my blog. All your comment are very special to me.
