Dear Laura,

If you’ve spent much time around me, you know that I am obsessed with snowmen, not the kind I could make with real snow, but the ones that I can needlepoint… or knit… or just look at on anything (cards, artwork, home decor). A couple of years ago, I saw this “Warm Greetings” canvas from Ewe and Eye and knew that one day I would have to stitch it. Well, I’ve decided with this early wintry weather in Minne-snow-ta that now is the time to do it! So what if I’m supposed to be making and buying gifts right now. So what if I still have 5 or so canvases to finish stitching, and at least 15 knitting & crocheting ones in progress! (Thank goodness, I only have one loom, so I can only have one weaving project at a time.) I’m ready!
Now about those gifts…
Oh, and don’t forget to enjoy your family and friends while you celebrate the holidays!
~ Laura & Julie
