KING WINTER HAS ARRIVED ........

The SNOW came down in tons yesterday,the STORM is yet to come,the Freezing cold temperature may be later, but CHAOTIC all around - YES,last night and this morning:CHAOS,except for the ones who stayed at home!
Compare this picture to the one on my last post...... LOVELY WHITE SNOW .....

My car had enough snow on it to make me work for a good half hour (where is the little house for my little car?! Well,I usually enjoy King Winter`s first snow ..... LOL .....
Nice to be inside;we burn candle lights,love the Christmas songs on the CDs and all the goodies. Two burning lights are the two Advent lights.When they all burn it`s almost time for looking for Father Christmas.The purple table cloth is my first finished project in December;on the OPAM list for this month very soon.

Have made myself a nice cup of Earl Grey,a Christmas cake is here on the plate;will be reading your blogs and get lots of new inspiration. And till next time,enjoy your sewing:o)

Brrrr....Aren"t you glad you can stay cozy in the house and sew? It's still been quite warm here. We're expecting a lot of rain today, possibly turning to a little wet snow tonight. But it won't look like your snow!

It looks cold there but the snow sure is pretty! Love your purple table topper! :0)

Oh my! I have never been in the snow, I don't think my blood could stand it. It sure is beautiful though.

Ja så kom vinteren. Men det var heldigvis ikke glatt. Det er jo koselig da, med en lekker adventsduk og greier

Hi.
I wish more snow at my part of the world- but it seems you got it all:-)
Love you starcloth.
Have some great sewing time with tea. By the way have you tried the Jule te from Søstrene Greene??
I love that one.
Hugs :-)

I love to see snow but have to confess I am grateful I don't have to put up with it very often any more, even though I live only 30 miles south of Victoria, Canada, on an island in the USA. The Internet is so amazing. I love keeping up with quilters around the world! My passion is quilt history so as long as women (and yes, even men) keeping quilting, I will always have something to study! Stop by Quilt History Reports and check my list of previous post-subjects. Some are long like a story with lots of photos and some are short with a few photos. I love to research and write! The more quilts that are made, the more future quilt historians will have to write about so keep up the good work! karenquilt.blogspot.com

Brrrr....1/2 an hour to unearth the car from under all the snow! I'd have given up and gone back inside *LOL* You enjoy all your white cold stuff, it does look very pretty and I do wish for photo opporunities like your header, they look so fantastic against the snow.
Love your purple tablecloth, is it a pattern or did you make it up, the shape is fabulous...

I love snow! I'd love to live in a part of the world where it snowed every winter. We caught the storm in Scotland too with gales and much more rain than snow.
Wrap up warm and enjoy your Earl Grey (my favourite tea too)

The snow can add to frustrations of scraping off the car and so forth, but it is surely is a beautiful sight! I do enjoy the snow as it falls and seeing it when it's fresh and new...and then I can tire of it so quickly. We're still awaiting our first measureable snow and it isn't arriving anytime soon, a bit too warm for it right now. But undoubtedly it will arrive in its own time.
Merry Christmas to you.

Snow is rare where I come from, always a treat to see its beauty. It looks like a good time to snuggle up in your studio and sew.

Wonderful! I keep singing "Let it snow" and all I've had is a handful so far. :-( Lovely Husband says I should lay off for a while until daughter has safely travelled up the country on Saturday. After that I am back to singing again.

What an absolutely fabulous star mat! I've sat here trying to work out how it was pieced. Love it!

So hard to believe that we have the heat and you have the extreme cold... I love reading about it, but I don't think I would like to have to live with it... stay warm, and quilt lots!! Happy Christmas...
