Don't You Just Love Snowmen?

I sure do, and Rhonda stitched two of the cutest little fat round snowmen onto the tote bag that she made for me! I received my Christmas Tote Bag Swap package from her in the mail and couldn't wait to open it! Here's what she sent me...

Christmas Tote Bag Swap PackageA darling snowman tote bag with beautiful stitchery on both sides, a quilt pattern, a fat quarter of fabric, some steak seasoning and tea, a guide to sewing and a guide to grilling. What a variety!

Christmas Tote Bag Swap PackageHere's a close-up of one of the snowmen. I love snowmen with ear muffs on. There just seems to be something comical about that. I mean, they're snowmen you know. They are supposed to be cold!

Christmas Tote Bag Swap PackageDon't you love the fabric Rhonda used? It looks like a snowy day!

Christmas Tote Bag Swap PackageThis darling quilt pattern was part of my package too. It's called Do Not Open Until Christmas and it's a big pile of Christmas packages! How cute is that? I think it would be a great stash buster too, so I might just have to pull out my Christmas fabrics and see what happens!

This swap, hosted by Paula over at Coffee Time Stitches, was so much fun to be a part of. I'll show you the tote bag I made for my partner soon. If you'd like an idea of what it looked like, you can check out this tote bag over in my Etsy shop since I used the same fabric line and my own tote bag design to make both of them!

Thanks, Rhonda and Paula, for a fun swap!

Happy Stitching!
