Snow, snow, and more snow...and a little giveaway.

Wow, where has the time gone.  Christmas has been here and gone almost a month ago.  We had a nice Christmas, but I was very happy when it was all over.  
We also had a nice winter storm this week which dumped the most snow that we've seen in the last 10 years.  My kids hadn't ever seen that much snow...a whole foot.  I know there are areas in the US that have gotten much more than that over this winter, but for us, it's a ton.  School was cancelled on both Thursday and Friday.  It's actually been cancelled quite a lot in the last month.  There hasn't been a single week since the kids started back after Christmas that they've gone a full week.  They need to go back though.  I need that peace and quiet and opportunity to get things done.  I took the kids sledding for an hour or so near the house today.  They had a blast!  

I have been stitching quite a bit lately.  I signed up for that challenge where you work on your UFO's, and I have been doing that, but I also started and finished something little.  I definitely needed some instant or semi instant gratification.  Last week, I placed on order with Shepherd's Bush, and this was one of the kits that I bought.  I bought the little white box for it as well.  It turned out quite pretty.  My girls are both wanting it, but I'm going to keep this one for myself.
SB Warm Heart
Well, now for the giveaway.  I've been wanting to post this one for quite a while, but am just now doing this.  
I am giving away a brand new copy of the Lizzie Kate chart Snowman '10 and Lizzie Kate Quick It Where's the Party with the fabric and threads for the chart Snowman "10.  Just comment on this post, and I'll use the random chooser thingy to choose someone on Wednesday January 26th.  
Have a great week!!!

That is the cutest design you just finished! I am partial to snowmen, anyway, but he's a real cutie. Please include me in your giveaway - I have the LK 2010 snowman, but not the fabric and threads or the other chart you are offering, so I promise to gift the chart should I be fortunate enough to win. Thanks!

SB Warm Heart is so cute, I can see why your children would want it (and better, it is something that their mom made). That is a lot of snow for St. Louis, I am sure that the kids are enjoying the snow days!
Well, I would love to be entered into your giveaway. Wonderful things you are offering.
Take care!
