"Let is Snow"!! And, boy, has it!
I made this for a friend, for Christmas. I had the embroidery finished but just finished making it into a pillow today. Yeah, yeah.... I know... I'm late. What's new? I swear that I'm going to start making gifts early for next Christmas!! Early, as in... January!! No, I get all my good Christmas ideas in about the first or second week of December! I actually appreciate that stores put things out earlier these days.... it gives me good ideas earlier! I don't understand why people think they can wait until the day after Thanksgiving to start making a zillion gifts, baking a zillion cookies and batches of fudge, writing to friends that they only write to once a year, which you'd like to put a little thought into... no?? So, my friends, you can remind me, next July, that I need to start making things now, not in December!! Mabye that'll work.
Anyway, this embroidery pattern is from Crabapple Hill (http://www.crabapplehillstudio.com/) and Meg Hawkey. I love her stuff! My oldest daughter, who reminds us nearly every day that she hates the snow, asked me if I could make another one of these pillows, but, instead, make it read, "Make it stop snowing!" Such a wit. No fear, dear, it was 50 degrees today! Downright balmy! I think the snow is gone for a while.
We had a wonderful Christmas as I hope all of you did. I love this "lull" week of getting ready for the New Year. I'm excited about the coming year... not that this year was bad; it was a great year... but I look forward to all the fantastic things the Universe has in store for us!
I wish you all a happy, healthy and properous New Year!
