Winter Arrives!

I'm hoping everyone had a wonderful Christmas, whether you celebrate in the heat of the Southern Hemisphere or in the chill of cold in the Northern. 

The ornament for next year's Just Cross Stitch magazine's special Christmas Ornament edition is completed and off to them, yeah!  And I can turn my attention back to 'October~Homespun Oak'.

'October~Homespun Oak'
I'm about 2/3rd done with this stitch and am really enjoying the plaid and fall colors.

Besides stitching I'm spending a lot of time online looking at seed/plant catalogs.  We're hoping to greatly expand the garden with the new hugelbeds and I know I am going to end up ordering way too many seeds!  But whoever has had the pleasure of sitting with a Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds catalog, or SeedSavers or Territorial catalogs could blame me?

Next to food magazines there is nothing more drool worthy than these seed catalogs!  Terry looks over my shoulder and asks 'how many types of melons are you planning on planting?'  But with names like Charentais, Kajari, Gingers' Pride, Kiku Chrysanthemum, Hearts of Gold, Rich Sweetness and Petit Gris de Rennes, how can I only pick a couple????? lol   

Hopefully, reality will set in before I hit the buy button!

I send my hopes to you all that the New Year of 2019 will be a very blessed one for us all and leave you with something lovely to watch.  Our local photographer with a drone has made so many beautiful videos, but this is one of my favorites.  If you can't see it in your email or mobile you can go to this link to view it.
