A Birthday gift for a special friend

 This is a special Birthday Gift that I made
Carol at Stitching Dreams.  We have
been blog friends for many years and we
share the same birthday month.  I always
try to make it extra special.  I got this idea
from Vonna at The Twisted Stitcher.  When
I first saw the pocket watch, I thought
about Carol.  I know she has a snowman tree
and I thought this would be perfect for her.
The snowman is from the JCS 2009 issue,
Let it snow, by Glory Bee Designs.  I did
tweek the colors a little bit.  I have to say
this snowman is pretty cute.  I know
Carol received her gifts so I can post this
now.
This is a picture I took a little over a month
ago when I was going on my last break at work.
The colors were just amazing.  The Sunset was
really stunning.  It is much warmer today, it will
be in the 50's.  I like the warmer weather.
Happy stitching.
