Another great mail !!!

Maybe you remembered I fell in love with two snowmen on the cover of the Cross country stitching magazine? Debi was very kind to tell me she will get the mag for me! Thanks Debi, that was so nice to buy it for me !!! And look at what I got today:

Not only I got the magazine but Debi added all the threads for the snowmen chart I was speechless when I saw the threads in that very useful plastic pouch !!! Waow, Debi: thank you for this precious gift! Thank you for your generosity It brought me to tears ...

She also added a cute calendar full of Popcorn the bear patterns ( great for small fabrics !!! ) :

And two Mary Engelbreit self stitck notes (Post it !) !

Debi didn't know it but I love Mary engelbreit. I even have some of her cross stitch books.

I love the stitching blogging community. I am virtually meeting great people ! Debi, thanks again: you are wonderful !!!

I wanted to tell you all about Pierre's appointment but it's getting late and I want to stitch a little bit. Esteban grabbed a pencil tonight and "drew" on some of my walls (covered with wall papers ) when I was preparing tomorrow clothes ... Of course, Pierre and Emma were too busy watching a music video on you tube to check him ... I tried to erase the mess but that poor quality pencil cannot really be erased ...

I want to show you my progress on the snow family:

Yep, the boy has his face !!! (don't tell but I am still avoiding the Lavender and Lace little boy's face shtttttttttt )

You snowman family has another face in it! It's looking terrific!

Your friend Debi is very sweet. That a lovely package she sent you. :)

Cute snowboy face ^.^ I can definitely relate when you said you're avoiding doing one over one stitches. They're such a pain but so worth it when completed.

Hugs, my friend! I'm glad everything arrived in good shape. It was so much fun to surprise you!

Very generous gifts you received. Love the Popcorn Bear calendar. I've always wanted to stitch a popcorn bear pattern.

Are you able to get Mr. Clean Erasers? I think they would probably be able to remove the pencil from the wallpaper.

Your snow family is really coming along beatifully.

Now you stop that procrastinating and get that L&L boy's face done LOL :)
