A snowman with a nose, some S&S progress, and another award!

God bless stitching friends!! Thanks to Sharlotte, my little San Man snowman now has a nose.  She read about my predicament and sent me some of her very own handmade carrot noses.  Thank you Sharlotte! As you can see it is perfect!
I have made quite a bit of progress on my Sense and Sensiblity Sampler since I last posted-

I also worked on "D" of my Stitchers Alphabet but not enough progress to really post about yet!

I also received another award! I couldn't believe it!  I received it from Belinda of Blue Ribbon Designs.  I feel so honored, and even more so because Belinda is cross stitch designer!! Thank you Belinda! This award is for bloggers who inspire others with positivity and creativity.

And one more little thing.. if you have read my blog for a while you will know that I love sushi.  When Hanna was with her friend and her friend's family at the mall a week or two ago, she found some sushi earrings and was so excited to show them to me. I have yet to talk her into getting her ears pierced, or she probably would have gotten them for herself! Anyway, we went to the mall today and as soon as I saw them I loved them.  Here they are-
Aren't they the cutest? And these appeared to be the only ones left- so you know it was meant to be.. ;)..
hope everyone has a great week coming up!

Yay! Your snowman can smell now. :o) He is really cute. Congratulations on your award and thank you for awarding me. I am honored. The sushi earrings are cute. I am not a big fan of sushi the food but I appreciate it as the art it takes to make it all look so pretty.
