Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

It's that time of year .....

Inventory time!!

Can you say "Yaaaaay!"?  Dear Hubby hasn't said it yet but if I bribe him with a deadline of "Hey, a bowl game is on!", we'll have it done in no time!

After all these years .....

After being bloggy buddies since 2008, Facebook "friends" since 2012, constant emailers, and recently texting fools, we finally meet in person at the "happiest place on earth"!

Linda from "Plain and Simple Libby" blog
and I finally met at Disneyland for breakfast and a very fast 4 hours of talking and laughing. What a treat! And hopefully the beginning of another chapter in our friendship!!

Trying to get in a winter-y mood .....

The projected weather report for our area of South Carolina on Christmas Day is ....
What !!!??

Today is a dark, dreary, 100% chance of rain day...... perfect for sitting inside and stitching!

So to try and dream of a white Christmas and a cooler January/February, I am working on a few samples for the booth.  Our first show of 2016 is January 8th and 9th in Sanford, North Carolina.  It will be here sooner than I think!

This sample is Patriotic Snowman by Liberty Rose patterns.

The weather outside is .....

..... not frightful ....

I'm not sure how I feel about having my coffee on the front porch starting the third week of December wearing a t-shirt and jeans.  Even the doors and windows are open to get a little fresh air.  It's supposed to be in the 70's again today.  Our average should be 55°.  Don't get me wrong ..... I love this weather but it worries me some when there is so much topsy turvy weather throughout the country.

Either way, it is PERFECT weather for dyeing wool so I guess that will be on the agenda until the weather turns again.
