My Winter Tote Bag

I received my Winter Tote Bag package from Sabine the other day. Unfortunately, the postal service was not kind to the box. It arrived smushed on one end of it. The result was moisture got into the package and caused the red floss in the box to bleed on a few of the pressies and the tote bag.

Luckily only one side and the corners of the stitchery are red. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to clean it. I'm going to be using it anyway. Isn't the stitchery adorable? My favorite winter scene - a snow man!
Here is the back of the bag. I love the fabric she chose to use.
Here are the rest of the goodies: there is a package of teddy bears to stitch, red floss, a package of sewing themed buttons, pins, a stitchery calendar, a beautiful red plate and Christmas candle, an adorable angel and chocolate. The cookie recipe sounds yummy and I hope to try it soon. Thanks, Sabine!
Have you received your Winter Tote?

Wonderful package you received there Paula! I love the snowman stitchery! I did receive my package and I am just getting ready to write a post about it, so come take a peek in a little while and see what I got...I'll give you a hint...the stitchery is very similar to yours! I love snowmen too!

Great bag, such a lovely stitchery and fabrics. Shame about the packaging but at least it sounds like it will be salvagable. Your other goodies look pretty wonderful too!

Ahhh, it hurts to see the bag like that :-(
The cookie recipe: you can use 250g of butter, that works as well, I tried it last week :-)
