Walking in a winter wonderland


When we moved to the south, we were told it snowed down here once every five or six years or so. Last night was our third snow "storm" here in Hattiesburg. I woke up to white, but it's almost gone. I quick snapped a picture of a Christmas sampler of mine in a snowy bush, while wet slush was falling off the roof above me. This is my Christmas Colors (MD's Sampler) that I released about a year ago. It's not a Christmas sampler, per se, but the colors and motifs, I think, are Christmassy.

We went and saw the Fantastic Mr. Fox last night. VERY good movie (not just for kids...in fact, I think grownups would get more from it.) Lots of great actors and actresses, and the animation was incredible (I love stop-motion photography.)

With all of the white stuff outside this morning, I started to really feel the spirit of the season. I think I'll go home and turn on Sting's new Christmas album (sooo good.) We need to put our ornaments on the tree, too. Have a great weekend!

Wow, that's a lot of snow for you guys! We have had some slushy mix today, but it is too warm to stick.

Sounds like your Friday nite movie was better than ours - I do not recommend Armored - it wasn't worth 2 hours of my time, could've been stitching.

The Weather Channel showed a clip of snowball fighting in Hattiesburg and I thought of you. I am sure your children enjoyed the white stuff. The sampler is beautiful. It looks so nice against the snow-covered bush. Have a blessed day! kelley secrest
