On Winter...

"Live Simply BOM - January"
design by Buttermilk Basin

I joined this BOM with JJ Stitches and am so happy when the package arrives.
I switched out the pretty binding provided for red velvet and am happy with the results.
You can read more about this BOM here.

It has been a long, hard winter. I think that everyone is about done with it.
I am tired of the frigid sub-zero temps and I know the coldest is predicted to arrive on Monday.
I am tired of all the ice that I am fearful of falling on.
But I have a confession to make...

I love *SNOW*
I love the quiet and peacefulness that it brings as it falls.
It brings a hush to the landscape even in the City of Chicago.
I love the crunch of it underneath my feet.
I love the clean bright sparkling white that it brings to the barren winter landscape.
I love *SNOW*

I have two other little snowy projects that I am working on, but I will need to set them aside temporarily. February 1st is creeping up and I must finish a few Valentine offerings that I will be offering for sale on February 1st.

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
~Philippians 4:8

Blessings, Patti

Beautiful! I also love snow--the peacefulness and the quiet beauty. Don't love cold weather so much.

That is a really fun piece and the velvet looks wonderful for the edge.

Snow is peaceful and beautiful. I love how you can see clear across the fields at night with the light of the moon. Ice, however, is really not a friend.... walking or driving it is dangerous.
Love your snowman and your personal touches!

Really like the velvet trim on your project.
Snow has a way of slowing us down in our fast paced world. I love that.

Snow is pretty. If a person just didn't have to drive in it! Snowman is so cute, waiting to see your Valentine offerings~

I'm so with you - I love snow and the beautiful way it makes everything sparkle and seem so fresh. I'm also with you on the those cold temps - they can leave anytime. Your project is wonderful and love the velvet for binding. I need to start of those because I have the perfect little shelf to hang them on. Also love your pottery - totally me :). Can't wait to see what hearts you will have for your update.
Hug - Karen
