Winter Days, Winter Projects, Winter Thoughts

A new tote for my sister. The fabric is crazy-quilt printed in such a cool way -- looks like the embroidery is real. I love love love the cherries. And the vintage button looks like it has stitchery on it as well. Love the bag -- love my sis!

Breakfast -- wonderful raspberry jam from Sunflower Sundries on 7-grain bread. It is the very best raspberry jam I have ever had. Just the right breakfast treat at my desk, while making a seed/plant order from Select Seeds. In just a few months I'll show the beautiful flowering tobacco, Nicotiana mutabilis, in the garden. Right now it is a mail-order promise of warm days and honey scents.

Vintage postcard. On winter days, thoughts turn to family and friends, near and far, here and gone. I am thinking of you.

K: I love the bag you made for your sister. My sister made one for me and I love it. I have some grape jelly from my other sister. The vintage prints are like memories of family.

Look at you posting again! Love your new ones. That tote is so pretty. Your sister will love it.
Hey maybe I should try some of that jam it looks and sounds good. Don't you love old postcards? I have a lot of them, and Mary Beth sends me one once in a while.
Yea the weather here has been a little crazy the last few days, but it will be spring before we know it.
