White Christmas?

I must say, to those who live in a warm climate and would love to have a white Christmas, you can have it! It's snowing again, quite heavily too. Scott and I had to cancel our plans for tonight. The snow is supposed to turn to freezing rain and then all rain tomorrow. I don't mean to sound like a spoiled brat but I do hope that the weather cooperates for tomorrow. I need to go junkin'! I went into the depths of hell last year on my birthday and I've really been looking forward to wandering around the antique mall. I'll let you know in the morning how our roads are.

In the meantime, I just received the loveliest gift for my birthday from my dear friend Kim:

Teacup With Flowers

Aren't these beautiful? And I just love the teacup! I don't think I ever got fresh flowers for my birthday. What a nice surprise! Thank you so much Kim!!!!

I also received the sweetest Christmas gift this week from another friend:

Gingerbread Man

The little boxes that make up this cute Gingerbread Man are filled with yummy treats. I'm saving them for New Year's Day. My parents are coming over and we're ordering Chinese food! I just love Gingerbread Men! He's just so cute!

I made a slight change to Block #4 of my Garden Quilt:

Floral Crazy Quilt Block 4

Cathy left me a message saying that she felt that the blue flower appliqués were distracting. I went and looked at the block and Cathy was right. The blue flowers were overpowering the roses on the hankie. So off they came! I pulled out another little appliqué that I had already painted and now I feel that the block looks more balanced. I have that appliqué beaded now and will move on to another seam.

Well, I've moaned about the weather, shared my gifts and posted an update on Block #4. I could moan about the weather some more but I will spare you! Yes, my Seasonal Affective Disorder Syndrome is rather extreme. The lack of daylight is bad enough (can't remember the last time we had some sun) but trying to make plans around the weather makes me insane.

Is it Spring yet? I'll go stitch on my Garden quilt and think about shamrocks & bunnies.

A quick note to Ann F., I've tried to email you but they keep coming back to me. Just wanted to say thank you for the lovely comments you leave for me.

And a note to Pam, if you would like to drop me an email so that I can reply to you, that would be great! I so much appreciate the comments that you've left for me.

Ok everyone, I'm off to stitch. Have a nice evening!

Isn't SAD just awful ? I go from wanting to be alone and pulling the bedcovers over my head to being fed up of being inside and needing to be out walking no matter how cold it is .
Take care

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday, Pam. Your block is very pretty with the change you made; to me it looks like the flowers are flowing out of a teacup, kind of like your b'day bouquet. Stay warm!

First of all, Happy Birthday. May all your birthdays from now on be great! I hope your weather and roads clear up so you can enjoy your trip to the antique mall. I've got SAD too, and am mourning the sun. I used to go tanning in the winter, but that's not a good solution. Now I just double up on the meds (with doctor's OK). Your block looks BEAUTIMOUS!! Boy, you can embellish an applique more beautifully than anyone I know. Hugs, Cathy

Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas Pam. I know the weather is getting you down, but it's great to see you sooooooo positive after the year you just had. Spring is on it's way.
